Whether or not we have a white Christmas this year in the Stockade, I hope the one-page 2017 calendars I’ve uploaded for this posting will help spread the Yule holiday spirit in our neighborhood. They are a small thank-you to all those who have come to “suns along the Mohawk” this year for a taste of Stockade beauty and events. Each of the calendars is ready to print, email to family or friends, or leave on your digital device for reference in 2017.
- The two calendars with a white background are formatted to be printed at 5″ x 7″; the two with green backgrounds are formatted to be printed at 4″ x 6″. The jpg. files are the original image files, for high resolution.
- One version has a photo of the leading Stockade-athon runners on Washington Avenue in November 2015; the other shows the 2016 Jumpin’ Jack’s Fireworks as seen from the Mohawk River Bank, along the rear of Cucumber Alley.
- An image with Lawrence Circle reflected in a Stockade Christmas tree ornament appears on each calendar. If you squint, you can see the photographer in front of Lawrence snapping the photo.
- Click on each of the images for access to the full jpg. file, or right-click on it to save or copy it.
As a bonus, I’m including a Yule greeting card, formatted at 4″ x 6″, which is seen on the left. In addition, for those celebrating the Last Stockade Christmas without a Casino nearby, my reminder that opening day, February 8, is also the date of the Schenectady Massacre of 1690, can be seen below. It is also formatted for a 4″x 6″ print.
See the posting “our infamous February 8th“, at our sister weblog, “snowmen at the gates,” for ironic similarities between the two events.
Here are the remaining calendars:
- Whichever Holiday you celebrate, may it be joyous, and may the New Year bring a few good surprises along with good health and prosperity.
- And, may we all work together to protect and preserve the residential nature and beauty of our lovely Stockade Historic District.
. . happy faces at the 2016 Stockade Holiday Tree Lighting
p.s. Stockade & Schenectady postcards available at The Open Door make great stocking stuffers (and postcards), and are for a good cause. See out postcard page.
