Tuesday, May 17th 5:00 pm.

Dinner provided by The Diamond Grill Embassy Suites. $22 a person. Please RSVP to the Center front Desk. Seating is limited. "Volunteer of the Year - Par for the Corpse" Performed by the Adirondack Flatline Players. Sponsored by: The Albany Guardian Society. A local volunteer recognition organization is holding its first Volunteer of the Year pageant at the monthly meeting of Your Organization, and five qualified and motivated candidates are in the running for the coveted SIDI (Sure - I'll Do It) Award. But one of the nominees won't be around to hear the results - due to that nominee's sudden and unplanned demise. It'll be the audience's job to unmask the killer and solve the case.
