Cancellation of In-Person Club Events
As of March 7, 2020, New York State confirmed two COVID-19 cases in Saratoga County, NY. As a result, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has activated the COVID-19 Pandemic Protocol Trigger Level 1. Since then, RPI has been on a very strict schedule of testing and remote work.
The Rensselaer Club has therefore made the decision to postpone or cancel all upcoming events.  At the present time, all events will be virtual. Planning for upcoming events will be on a case by case basis.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Claire Karlicek at 



Hope  7  Children's  Christmas  Gifts


The Holidays can be sad for families who cannot afford gifts for their children.  You can brighten up a local child's Holiday by donating funds that we will use to buy gifts.
Any time between now and Thursday, December 31, 2020, you can click HERE to donate.
Thank you from us, and from the children!

Share  your  favorite  Holiday  Cocktails!


Do you have a favorite cocktail recipe (alcoholic or non-alcoholic)? Share with other club members! Send your recipes to Kathy Fontaine ( by December 13th, she will compile them as they come in, and post them here on the website!
Since we can't meet in person for our annual holiday buffet, we will be holding a virtual cocktail hour on December 13th. You can "bring" your cocktail or try another from the list.
Watch your email for your invitation!
