Lea Darling, President, Empire State Capital Volkssporters


New York‘s Empire State Capital Volkssporters (ESCV) club is deeply proud to announce the completion of the memorial for our three dear members whose lives were lost on Wednesday, August 10, 2011. While waiting for the weekly summer morning Wednesday walk to begin, the women were plowed into by an out of control SUV.

The procurement and placement of two scrolled wood and iron benches with engraved plaques have been located near the scene of the accident at
Saint Matthew’s Church in Voorheesville, NY.  A photo is attached.  Additionally, signature bricks are being placed in the walkways at each ladies Church.

These remembrances would not have been possible without the support of our AVA sister clubs generosity during a very tumultuous and sad time
 for our ESCV club and community.

Thank you from the soles of our walking shoes
