Twenty churches joined together at Jerry Burrell Park in Hamilton Hill Saturday. Well over 400 people participated by actually marching in the March Schenectady for Jesus! They marched from Hamilton Hill to Mont Pleasant and back. Another 100-150 neighbors joined the group back at Jerry Burrell Park. Carla Page was the Mistress of Ceremonies. An International singing artist entertained the group with uplifting and relevant music. There was a lot of praying and rejoicing for the people of Hamilton Hill. Paula LaJoy decorated the Music Wagon with balloons, made a balloon sculpture for the float and passed out free balloons. The New Independent Hamilton Hill Neighborhood Association cooked over 600 hot dogs. There were no left overs. Candidate for Congress Jim Fischer attended and walked the parade route! Many thanks to our sponsors Price Chopper and Stewarts and many more. Many thanks to the ocean of volunteers that work year round to make this the best event ever! You can see our video on TV next month. And we thank God for it all. We brought together a city.
