Event at Memorial Park
What a wonderful evening it was on May 21 for Albany High School’s inaugural outdoor concert. Although
it was a bit cool and windy, clothespins held sheet music in place and the bands played to the enjoyment of all. A rousing
John Phillips Sousa march got the audience clapping along in rhythm with the orchestra while the youngest fans danced and
played soccer around the edges of the crowd.
The Albany Community Foundation is proud to have sponsored this
special event by providing the organizational framework, publicity, and funding. We would like to thank Craig Bryant, Director
of Instrumental Music at Albany High School and the City of Albany and the Albany Unified School District for their support
in this event.

Our fourth annual Chocolate and Champagne Gala,

enjoyed by attendees. The delicious treats were as abundant and delicious as in past years. Thank you to everyone
who attended. Both the Albany Education Foundation and the Albany Community Foundation appreciate your support. Please

On September 11, 2011, the Albany Community Foundation joined forces
with City Arborist, Tony Wolcott to weed, remove inappropriate plants, and plant native species at the Albany Community Center.
We removed some of the hedges and planted natives and edibles around the building. Thank you to all who participated,
especially the Leos Club from AHS.
