Colonie>> The Colonie Chamber of Commerce honored Hoffman’s Playland

with the Spirit of the Community Award, as well as the recipients of the Colonie

Beautification Achievement Awards, the 2014 Volunteer of the Year, and the

Women-4-Women fundraising award at their Annual Dinner held at the Century

House on Thursday, January 29.

Created by the Colonie Chamber of Commerce to honor community members

who have continually made Colonie a better place to live and work, the Spirit of

the Community Award was accepted by Dave and Ruth Hoffman of Hoffman’s

Playland.

“This award is in recognition of the 62 years of joy and thousands of memories that

it has given not only to Colonie, but the entire Capital Region,” Says Tom Nolte,

President of the Colonie Chamber of Commerce.

In addition to the Spirit of the Community Award, the Colonie Chamber of

Commerce named the winners of the Colonie Beautification Achievement Awards.

Awarded by the Chamber’s Government Relations, Economics, and Transportation

(G*R*E*A*T) Committee, awards were created to recognize businesses who strive to

enhance the quality of life in the Town of Colonie and contribute to the community’s

physical environment.

Awarded in three categories, the winners are as follows:

• New Construction:

o New Loudon Associates, The Village at New Loudon—Completed in

2014, the newly constructed buildings at 622 New Loudon Rd. offer

multiple commercial units, with additional residential development

already underway behind the existing buildings.


Redevelopment:

o BCI Construction, The Loudon House Condominiums—BCI has

removed the burnt remains of Eamonn’s Irish Pub in Loudonville and

created the Loudon House Condominiums, a two story, 24 unit luxury

condominium complex modeled after George Washington’s Mount

Vernon home.

Curb Appeal:

o Siena College, The Grotto at Siena—Located on the Siena campus

behind the Fr. Benjamin Kuhn, O.F.M. House, the Grotto at Siena

was completed in Fall 2014 and is modeled after the shrine in

Lourdes, France, including a water feature and statue of Mary from

the original Siena Grotto dedicated in 1947.

Also named at the Annual Dinner was the recipient of the Colonie Chamber

of Commerce 2014 Volunteer of the Year, the Chamber’s Women-4-Women

Committee. Recognized for their outstanding dedication and devotion to furthering

the professional development and leadership of women in Colonie, the Committee
