Poestenkill Spirit Day, on October 29th at the Poestenkill Fire House, will feature a Roast Beef Dinner and various raffles.
The Roast Beef Dinner will be sponsored by the Poestenkill Business Association. Reservations may be made by calling 279-6680. Leave your name, telephone number, and the number of tickets you require. Adult tickets will be $15 and Children under the age of 12 will be $10. Payment will be made at the door. The doors will open at 4PM to give everyone time to view the raffle items. Dinner will be served starting at 5PM and service will end at 7PM.
There are also a number of exciting items to be raffled. A 40” flat screen television has been donated. Tickets will be $5 each. For more information on how to get raffle tickets and a chance to win the television, please call Sue Horton at Town Hall 283-5100.
Local merchants are helping in the effort by donating a variety of desirable items. Future updates will include a list of some of the donations. The items will be on display the night of the Roast Beef Dinner. Tickets for this “Chinese” raffle will be $1 each.
An additional way to show your Poestenkill Spirit will be to purchase a T-shirt, designed by local artist, Mike Hayes. A graphic of the mountain, the creek and the rain with the caption, “Poestenkill Spirit Day-We Survived the Flood of 2011” makes these shirts a true community spirit booster. Shirts are $15 each or two for $25. They are on sale at Town Hall or you can call Joan Hayes at 286-3019. All monies collected in the sales of these shirts will go directly to the Flood Victims Fund.
So, show your Poestenkill Spirit! October 29th will be a great day to demonstrate community support for those residents who continue to struggle with the aftermath of the recent tropical storms.
