SUNY Adirondack will kick off its two-year 50th anniversary celebration by hosting its first Homecoming on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on college’s Bay Road campus. The public is invited, and there is no charge.
The centerpiece of the day will be the first annual Tour D’Education Bike Rally. Proceeds from the Rally will benefit the ACC Foundation’s scholarship fund and will be held rain or shine. The master of ceremonies for the day will be Joe Donahue, a SUNY Adirondack alumnus and host of WAMC’s Roundtable show.
The day includes an “Alumni Experience” in the Student Center, a craft fair, a fly-over of antique planes, food and beverages at 1960s prices, a high-ropes course, family entertainment, and live music all day. The Visual Arts Gallery will be open and a children’s activity from the World Awareness Children’s Museum will be offered.
The bicycle rally covers 10, 25 and 50-mile routes through Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties. Check-in time is 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Registration fees are $20 for adults and $10 for children under age 13. Each participant will receive a free tee shirt with registration. Helmets are required for all riders. To register and for details including starting times, see: www.sunyacc.edu.
