Bailiwick and Bicycles

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Bailiwick, my favorite band ever, is playing a benefit show for the newly minted Skidmore chapter of Bicycles Against Poverty. The show hopes to raise money for its micro-finance projects in Uganda. Tasty foods from around the world will be served and banjos will be picked.

Thanks Stewarts Shops

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

In addition to managing an empire of stores that trade mostly in Marlboros, Lottery Tickets and Adirondack Crunch Ice Cream, Susan and Bill Dake, the owners of Stewart’s Shops, recently pledged to donate 350,000 dollars to Skidmore College.  Roughly equivalent to 116,666 gallons of milk, 43,750 packs of cigarettes or 140,000 extra thick milkshakes.

The donation is just a small piece of the 3.9 million pledged to the Community Foundation. The Dakes established the donor-advised trust with the intention of supporting institutions wherever Stewart’s Shops are enjoyed.
