The Kinderhook Tri-Vllage Rotary Club is planning a chicken barbecue fundraiser to benefit the Columbia Friends of the Electric Trail (CFET).
The event is set for 4 to 7 Saturday, August 24, at Rothermel Park, 15-19 Rothermel Avenue in Kinderhook. Tickets are $12 for the dinner that includes half a chicken, corn, roll, and dessert. Meals are for eat-in or take-out.
CFET is a group supporting the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail, a shared-use bicycling and pedestrian trail along the 35-mile Albany-Hudson Electric Trolley corridor from Hudson to Rensselaer, running through Rensselaer and Columbia counties, and now under construction.
AHET is part of the Empire State Trail, providing a key link between the Capital Region and the Mid-Hudson Valley. The Empire State Trail, when completed next year, will create a 750-mile biking and walking trail from New York City to Canada and from Albany to Buffalo.
