"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead Thank you 'Friends of TNT Barbershop' for giving up your Sunday morning to work at Sheridan Hollow Commons. At one time, this lot must have been a building. Inches below the surface is rock, concrete and brick. In order for the students of Make A Play, Inc. & University at Albany Liberty Partnerships Rising Stars Program to build the pergola, Sean and Kirk needed holes for the posts but the shovels weren't making a dent. So we rented an auger, Sean & Kirk called their friends, and after a couple of hours of hard work, we had holes for the pergola and bench posts, as well as the trees for outside the fence line. Thank you, gentlemen, for having a positive community impact today and everyday! ... See MoreSee Less
