Please visit our booth at the annual FFA Fair in the gym of Stissing Mountain High School on October 11 and 12, and plan on casting your vote for the photo you feel best represents Pine Plains. Since the number of entries was less than anticipated, all of those received are going to the Ag Fair to be voted on by the community. The grand prize winner will receive a dinner for two at the Stissing House and their photo printed on the society’s new postcard, with photographer credits. The first two runners up will each receive a $10 gift certificate at Hammertown Barn.
On Nov. 3 at 2:00 at the Lion’s Club Pavilion, we will present a program by James Storrow on “The Town Clock Restoration” (The Wilber Memorial Clock Tower). Mr. Storrow headed the restoration project which took place earlier this year. Please join us for what promises to be an informative and enjoyable afternoon.
