Two years ago, in honor of our town’s Centennial, the Recreation and Community Services Department invited us to celebrate by gathering with our neighbors to enjoy Dinner With Albany. It was a magical evening.
Now our town is 102, and the invitation went out again. Last Saturday we gathered around tables set up in the street, we toasted our town and each other, and we danced under the almost-full harvest moon.
It wasn’t about politics or fundraising. The only agenda was for neighbors and friends to get together to enjoy a beautiful Indian Summer evening. It was simply fun. As my neighbor Peggy put it, it was Albany at its finest.
The Albany Recreation and Community Services Department commissioned me to photograph the event. Now they want to make the images available to attendees as their gift. Here’s how it works. You can see the images on my website here. If you see yourself and would like a copy, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. (You can email me directly from the Home Page on my website.) I’ll be happy to email the image to you. Albanians, please feel free to pass this along to friends who were there. You can use the icons below to send this post by email, Facebook or Twitter.
A huge thank you to all the staff and volunteers who worked so tirelessly so we could have a blast. This is a pretty cool town.
