  • Holiday Party 2023

    It was a fun night at the Collegian Inn and Suites on Dec. 13 as Chapter Members and guests attended the annual Holiday Party!

    Thank you to Events Chair, Judy McCrea, and her committee for a wonderful evening of food and fun as well as Event Sponsors and donors to the Holiday Gift Drawings: The Collegian Inn & Suites, Vintage Garden, Yards Grille, Bull & Bear, and the CNY Chapter Leadership Team.

    Big winners of the evening included Fran Piraino and guest, Meg Mead, both of whom won a 2024 Chapter Membership, as well as guest, Rachel Bush, the 50/50 winner.

    Other gift winners included Mary Beth Fiore, Judy Winslow, Grace Kuqali, Nina Iles, Erin Byrnes-Hammond, Kelly Habegger, Colleen Roche, Winnie Schleider, Judy Windhausen, Judy Winslow, Sheila Ohstrom, Laurie Kadah, Theresa Covington, and Cindy Couche.

    A special thank you to those of you who participated in the 50/50 and Holiday Gift drawings, the proceeds of which were designated for the Food Bank of CNY. Your generosity will allow the Chapter to donate $473 to the Food Bank which is significant in their efforts to support the CNY Community.



  • CNY Hosts the 2023 Thruway Challenge

    It was a beautiful day for golf in August, and we hope the 40 ladies who joined us recently at Kanon Valley for the Thruway Challenge enjoyed themselves.

    Winners of the on-course contests were spread among the three Chapters, although CNY Chapter

    member, Cassie Breen, snagged a Closest to the Pin.

    With each 2 person team playing for just one point towards their Chapter’s total, it was close. Albany secured 3 points, Syracuse 3, but ultimately it was Rochester who garnered the Virtual Trophy win with 4 points.

    We congratulate the Rochester Chapter on their win and look forward to next year’s Challenge which
    will be hosted by the Rochester Chapter as well.

  • Green Lakes End of Season
    It was definitely a fall day when we gathered Sept. 24 at Green Lakes State Park Golf Course for the 2023 End of Season event. Hopefully everyone enjoyed a fun round of golf, the contest holes, luncheon, the 50/50 drawing and
    door prizes. 
    Following the round we had a nice luncheon, thanked our volunteers, acknowledged our League
    winners, the day’s contest winners, 50/50 winners and distributed door prices.
    Many thanks our event volunteers: Katie Mooney, Cindy Couche, Nina Iles, Judy McCrea, and Tracy Gibson for

    their help with set up, sign in, 50/50 drawings and all else.
