Newsy Tidbits to Know for Hudson Falls, Granville & Glens Falls
Richard Kind to Star in TV Pilot Hudson Falls
Richard Kind is a “character actor” – someone who probably won’t take the lead, but who you’d recognize immediately as an actor you’ve seen in many shows or movies. But now, the Spin City, Mad About You, and Scrubs alum is the star of a new pilot TV show with local ties.
According to IMDB, Richard Kind’s character, a detective, takes on a supposedly mundane job in a small, upstate town in an effort to rekindle his relationship with his ex-wife. There will be a preview of the show at The Strand on Tuesday, July 20. Although Richard Kind has a previous engagement there will be other cast and crew members in attendance.

In other happy news, there’s another update on the Granville Community Foundation we’ve reported on previously: They have surpassed their halfway goal – $566,275 out of $1 million, to be exact – and have planned a Community Celebration for this September. Hurray!
Babysitting Center Gets Free Painting Done, Will Pay Good Deed Forward
We love to provide “Glens Falls Good News” and this is a fun one: Local drop-off babysitting center Kassia’s Play Dates recently posted a thank you to their painter, Earl.
Kassia’s will be moving from the Queensbury location to Glens Falls in September, and Earl volunteered his time to paint the new facility. In exchange, he asked Kassia to pay it forward with the money she had set aside for painting towards his church and via hours of babysitting services to families in need. You can check out the post here.
