Home is where the heart is! And a part of having a home you love is making sure you feel safe and secure. This is why home security features are more popular than ever among homebuyers or those who just recently purchased a home.
If you just purchased a new home and it's not quite as buttoned-up as you'd like, then it's time to make changes. Our real estate agents know that home security features are both impressive and functional. Consider these security updates.

Albany's River Rhythms
River Rhythms is Albany's annual concert series, and many locals look forward to it all year long. The event takes place Thursday evenings at 7 PM in Monteith Riverpark at 489 Water Avenue NW (with a brief break on July 14 when the park hosts the local fair). Admission is free, but guests are strongly encouraged to make donations of $1 per person at the park's main gate on Water Avenue to help cover some of the costs of the event.
This year, River Rhythms is also hosting a secondary event: Rock Out Against Hunger. This fundraising and donation drive is being run on behalf of the Fish of Albany food pantry, a non-profit that feeds local families in need. Those who attend the concerts are encouraged to donate canned or boxed non-perishable food in the donation barrels that will be on-site at each event. The pantry will also be taking cash donations at this time. This is a great opportunity to give back to your community while enjoying the talents of local artists.
The 2022 River Rhythms schedule is as follows:

The band will play in the park's main gazebo, but guests are encouraged to enjoy the music from any location in the park.
