What do we do?

As our motto states, “we serve”. How do we serve? We perform community projects:

  • Indian Meadows Tree Farm: We planted over 200 saplings of various varieties in Indian Meadows Park this past Spring. As these trees grow, they will be re-planted in other areas of the park as needed. We will continue to care for these trees and supplement them each year.
  • “Adopt-a-Highway”: We have “adopted” a mile long section of Sacandaga Road starting at Spring Road and heading north.
  • Freedom Park: We maintain the picnic tables in Freedom Park.
  • Collins Park Pavilion: We have built a large 100 person pavilion in Collins Park for the Village of Scotia. Contact the village if you’d like to rent the pavilion. To find out more about this project, see our Pavilion Page
  • Splash Pad: We are constructing a splash pad in Collins Park. For more information on this project, see our Splash Pad page

We also hold several fund-raisers through-out the year, wreath sales at Christmas, a spaghetti dinner in March, chocolate bunny sales at Easter, and a golf-tournament in September. The money from these fund-raisers have been used to support the following programs:
