Have you ever wished that you could find that one necklace or bracelet that would go with that special sweater or outfit that you like to wear? Have you ever wanted a special necklace that could show off a family heirloom or pendant? Have you ever just wanted to find a necklace made of that special gemstone or color scheme that you like so much? Many jewelers are adding custom jewelry making to their services to fill this need, but SRAC is offering the opportunity for people to create their own beaded jewelry at a fraction of the cost and with high quality gemstones!
On the Second Saturday of each month, Ellen Sisco holds classes at SRAC in basic and intermediate beading. Supplies include beads and all accessories to complete a necklace or bracelet. Hundreds of precious stones, clips, glass beads and polished glass chips are among the variety of items that the attendees will be able to choose from.
You can also call SRAC and request specific colors and/or gemstones that you want to make your jewelry with! Ellen will facilitate your needs and help you make the perfect piece of jewelry for yourself or for a gift for someone else. Fees for this two hour beading class is $25. RSVP's are greatly appreciated by calling the Center at (607)565-7960 or by emailing info@SRAcenter.org.

First of all I want to thank all of you who generously support SRAC through donations, volunteerism and in so many ways - without all of you - we could not survive. We have a modest savings account and are working hard to continue to be open 5 days a week with 100% volunteer staffing - but because of all of you - we have never lost faith that we could keep our doors open and our mission alive! But we still need your help!
|Many items in this case at the Co-op have been donated to SRAC to raise funds!|
In fact in August, SRAC raised $593 dollars just at the Co-op on items donated and sold there! But this will only continue to work if we continue to get more items in to sell - So please help us by spreading the word and telling anyone who wants to get rid of anything that we can sell to contact us - And remember if it is too big for them to bring in themselves to just call me at 607-727-3111 and we will arrange a pick up.
Thanks for spreading the word and your continued support!

In the summers of 2012 and 2013, archaeologists and students from Clinton Community College conducted excavations at the Zagreb site, part of Col. Zebulon Pike's 1812-1813 winter cantonment in Plattsburgh, New York. Excavations have revealed a modest structure roughly 12'x16' with several architectural features apparent. Artifacts found in the cabin corroborate the documentary record of the camp's destruction in the summer of 1813, as well as giving details about the lives of soldiers that occupied it. This evidence, combined with historical accounts, paints a picture of misery for the army camped there 200 years ago.
Admission donation for the presentation of $6 for general admission and $4 for SRAC members is appreciated. Doors open at 6pm with the opportunity for all visitors to tour the SRAC exhibit hall as a part of the night's event for free.
