The Rensselaer County Cornell Cooperative Extension has been collecting stories  and memories from local farmers, families and businesses detailing how the organization has helped over the years – “whether they took place 100 years ago or just last year.” The group is also putting together a time capsule that “when opened in the future, there will be clear evidence of the vitality, education and relevance our organization has provided.” For information,  contact Bernie Wiesen at 518-272-4210.
