In a story from The Troy Record, the recipients of the awards include the executive director of the Capital District Community Gardens. She is Amy Klein. She’s being recognized for her 16 years of service with that title.

She’s in in the company of Equinox, Inc., The Schenectady Community Action Program, Inc., The Empire State Youth Orchestra and eBizDocs - They did work helping people in a nonprofit sector.

They will all get their awards at a luncheon in November. We would like to congratulate all of the award winners. It’s nice to pass along some good news.
