President's Message by Ray Newkirk
HMRRC’s financial situation is sound. We have both significant financial assets, and the procedures and systems in place to safeguard them.
At the close of 2016, we had approximately $400,000 in cash in five accounts at SEFCU. We have two checking accounts (a general account and a race account), and three savings accounts. (SEFCU sets up a saving account in conjunction with each checking account, so two of those savings accounts are largely dormant.) The third savings account pays a slightly higher interest rate and is where most of our savings are held. for full article, click here
The Mohawk-Hudson River Marathon and Hannaford Half Marathon need volunteers on street corners, handling baggage and helping in the finish area, to mention a few assignments. Most are on race day, October 8th, 2017. This event stretches from Schenectady to Albany, and we need volunteers to keep the runners safe all along the way. If you are not running, consider volunteering. If you are, ask your family to help and they will get to see you along the way! We would love to have you help! Sign up HERE. Questions? Contact Frank Broderick .

“I religiously track my food and exercise. I’m eating 1,300 calories (the number my tracker told me to eat if I want to lose 2 pounds a week). I’ve been following a strict diet and the scale hasn’t budged. My friends tell me I am eating too little. I think I must be eating too much because I am not losing weight. I feel so confused… What am I doing wrong?” ... for full article, click here
