Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater. A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. I plan on walking on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27. You can contact me at:

12/16/2012 - Victory Garden

Linda led a small contingent of DE Docents to Sheridan Academy to give presentations on the World War II home front.  The central theme was victory gardens.

Jack Madden and Linda Wruck (USS SLATER Education Coordinator) were the key note speakers. Jack is a WWII Navy Vet and DE Docent "par excellence". They did a great job. Gardening is not my cup of tea, nor is it my area of expertise. That said, I was glad to help and enjoyed the experience.

Note - One thing we need to add to the presentation is a few rolls of paper towels and a dust bin/brush combination.  These things can get a little messy.
