SARATOGA SPRINGS — Northshire Bookstore has announced it is accepting pre-orders in advance of the Nov. 17 anticipated release of Barack Obama’s “A Promised Land.” 

The 768-page book signals the first volume of Obama’s presidential memoirs and covers a journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory and the watershed night of Nov. 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

Reflecting on the presidency, Obama offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy, and brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. 

The book is $45 and may be pre-ordered by visiting Northshire Bookstore Saratoga, located at 424 Broadway – the sore is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, or by visiting: northshire.com.

CHATHAM, NY — On Saturday, Sept. 26, Equine Advocates will present Willie Nelson with the 2020 Safe Home Equine Protection Award for his work and dedication to end the slaughter of America’s horses during a special online event to be broadcast on YouTube, Facebook and Equine Advocates website. Nelson will be the 19th recipient of this award, which was first given out in 2002. 

Nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer/song writer Sheryl Crow will be making an appearance during the broadcast with a special message for her good friend and fellow horse lover, Willie Nelson. They recently recorded the song, “Lonely, Alone” together. The music video for the song includes footage of Nelson with some of his rescued horses. 

Actress Ali MacGraw, who appeared in such iconic films as “Love Story,” “The Getaway” and “Goodbye Columbus,” will be presenting Andrea Eastman with the 2020 Equine Savior Award for her decades of work and activism on behalf of America’s wild and domestic equines.  Eastman, who had an illustrious 27-year career as a high-powered agent for ICM, was personally responsible for Robert Redford’s signing of the Voter Card in California in 1998 in support of the first state initiative in the nation to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption. That initiative, “Prop 6” passed by more than 60% of the vote. 

 The program will be hosted by two-time Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress, Bebe Neuwirth, who was the recipient of the Safe Home Equine Protection Award in 2009. 

Artists also performing during this celebration and telethon include: Tom Chapin, The Gibson Brothers, Cathy Grier, Brooke Moriber, and Livingston Taylor. 

The broadcast will begin at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. For more information, visit Equine Advocates website: www.equineadvocates.org and official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/equineadvocates.org/ for more details and updates. 

Equine Advocates, a national, non-profit equine protection organization based in Chatham, will be celebrating its 25th birthday on Feb. 27, 2021. Its mission is to rescue, protect and prevent the abuse of equines through education, investigation, rescue operations, the dissemination of information to the public and through the operation of a horse sanctuary for slaughter-bound, abused and neglected equines.

A Mother’s Gift Given to Saratoga School

SARATOGA SPRINGS — This week mothers who are residents at Prestwick Chase will be donating 75 plastic Adirondack chairs to the Saratoga Springs High School. John Rowe, director of marketing at Prestwick, said they had many chairs left over from their Mothers Day event this year and wanted a way to help out the school district. 

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Franklin Community Center is honored to have the support of Stewart’s Shops and The Dake Family a fund of The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. Franklin Community Center is the recipient of a $6,000 grant that will be used to modify the reception area in order to accommodate new COVID-19 safety protocols.

“When the pandemic hit we were forced to close our office down to the public at the exact moment when our services were needed most.” states Executive Director, Kari Cushing. “Fortunately, the weather at that time of year allowed us to continue serving our less fortunate neighbors safely.” 

With the winter months quickly approaching and the requests for food only growing, the need to open the doors is getting closer and closer.  “With this generous grant from Stewart’s Shops and The Dake Family we will be able to reconstruct our reception area to comply with social distancing requirements and keep our clients, volunteers and staff safe and healthy” said Board President, Jason Lynch.

The generosity and compassion Stewart’s Shops and The Dake Family have shown this community over the years is truly unparalleled. The strong moral compass and commitment to the community from which their company has been built upon speaks volumes to the character of the Dake family. 

Franklin will continue to work hard to meet the needs as they change and exist in the community. For more information on the programs and services of Franklin Community Center please visit the website: www.franklincommunitycenter.org
