The “Showboat” pulled into Niskayuna Reformed Church on Friday, Nov. 14, 1969.

Laura Sicko and her friends from the church’s Pairs and Spares club performed the celebrated musical. Tom Male, Toni Fay Levitto, Betty Fenson and William Male were all in straw hats and walking sticks for the show.

Bunches of people had other ideas for early autumn of ’69. Young archers prepared for a bow-and-arrow tournament in Niskayuna. Nurses rallied for an anniversary dinner. And Scotia police officers made plans for the police benevolent association’s annual Thanksgiving Eve dance for teenagers.

East Glenville firefighters, single men and women, ski enthusiasts and members of St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church also invested time for future good times.

Joseph Fallone and Jane Brough helped put Schenectady’s annual Christmas parade together. The big event, which was held Nov. 28, included 10 floats, Santa Claus and hundreds of kids and their parents bundled up in the city’s downtown section.
