Apr 28 - 5:00 - 7:00 National Poetry Month Worksho...
Join Albany's Poet Laureate Rebecca Black in a hands-on workshop and build your own poems. Use all of your senses to explore each of the four stations - in the Tinker Lab, you’ll find paper, scissors, paint, clay and found objects to construct your own three-dimensional poem. Next visit the Poem Decoder Station, the Time Machine Station, and the specially designed annex for Totally New Feelings. No experience necessary; come join Albany's active community of poem-makers, word-designers, and emotion-engineers. Snacks and light refreshments provided. Rebecca encourages adults, kids, and families to join her and discover their inner poets!
May 6 - 9:00 - 12:30 Friends of Albany Parks Clean...
The Friends of Albany Parks program is designed to encourage community members to get involved with the care, maintenance and beautification of their favorite neighborhood park. These events also help foster a better sense of community and build social capital as neighbors meet and work with one another. Friends of Albany Park members then recruit their friends and neighbors to come together for a Clean-Up Day. Volunteers who attend the Clean-Up Day will receive an official Friends of Albany Parks t-shirt. Lunch is provided by the Albany Community Foundation. For more info please contact Liam Kelly. Or visit our FOAP website!
