CSC Hosts Fifth Annual Homeless Person's Memorial Service

Community Services Consortium hosted the fifth annual Homeless Person's Memorial Service on December 21 at Albany City Hall. The event gathers the community together to pay respect to the homeless people that we have lost in Albany during the year. This year's service included six homeless people: Robert A. Carlson, 76; Daniel S. Cowen, 59; Russell Ray, 56; Crystal L. Sprague, 33; Vincent A. “Tony” Torrier, 48; and David L. Weidrich, 42.

To read more about the memorial or to view a slide show with pictures from the event, visit the Albany Democrat-Herald site here.

Welcome to CSC's blog and e-newsletter!

These communications tools can be used to make announcements, acknowledge donors and volunteers, post videos and slideshows–whatever we want to share with our online community.

There are 3 ways to deliver info to stakeholders:

  1. The blog itself, which can be linked to our current website
  2. Email news blasts (blog articles sent via email as eNewsletters)
  3. RSS Feed (subscribers read in Google Reader or other feed reader, can also send posts to Facebook and Twitter)
We're excited about these communication tools and look forward to both your input and feedback for continuing improvement and positive information-sharing.

If you have agency/program information you'd like posted on this blog, please send full text and/or photos and videos, ideas, or suggestions to Janet Hessel and she will take the next steps.
