BALLSTON SPA — All across the country on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, generous individuals donate their time, efforts, and finances to different non-profit organizations.
On this year’s Giving Tuesday, Nov. 30, Cornell Cooperative Extensions of Saratoga County is asking for help with their Lead the Legacy Capital Campaign to benefit the expansion of the 4-H Training Center on Middleline Rd. in Ballston Spa. The 44-acre property already includes many unique attractions including a fishing pond, garden, indoor arena, outdoor arena, classroom, meeting space, and a kitchen. The facility has hosted educational series like Canine Obedience, equine events like the Horse Symposium, youth activities like the Halloween Extravaganza, and more. The attendance rate of all these events and the growing number of 4-H members has shown a need for a larger and more encompassing building. The proposed project will provide three state-of-the-art classrooms and ADA accessible restrooms with shower units. This expansion will have exponential possibilities for 4-H, CCE Equine, CCE Saratoga, and the general public.
Visit ccesaratoga.org/4-h/lead-the-legacy for a complete overview of the project, sponsorship descriptions, and a link to PayPal where you can contribute securely online. Donations are also accepted via cash or check made payable to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County and dropped off or mailed to the office at 50 West High St, Ballston Spa.
