PHILMONT MEMORIAL DAY SERVICES PLANNED
Village to be designated a Purple Heart Community.
The Minkler-Seery American Legion Post # 252 is busy planning this year’s Memorial Day Parade and service in Philmont.
This Memorial Day, May 31st, 2021, the Village of Philmont will become an official Purple Heart Community.
New York State Senator Daphne Jordan, Philmont Mayor Brian Johnson, Town Supervisor Kippy Weigelt, Deputy Town Supervisor Stephen Hook, Town Clerk Mary Jeanne Hoose and other elected officials and dignitaries are expected to attend.
The Town of Claverack was named Columbia County's very first Purple Heart Community in 2019.
Scheduled events are as follows:
Friday evening May 28th the Legion will hold services at the lower Main Street Memorial at 6:00 pm and at the two cemeteries.
Monday, May 31st there will be a small parade lining up at 8:30 am on Maple Avenue in front of the Philmont Firehouse. The parade will travel down Main Street to the Main Street Memorial starting at 9:00 am.
The Philmont Post Office is also taking part by promoting the Purple Heart stamp the week before Memorial Day.
These are exciting times. Claverack (and Philmont) is working!
The Mellenville-Philmont Food Pantry continues to provide much needed food and supplies to town residents.
Volunteers including Town Clerk Mary Jeanne Hoose, Deputy Town Supervisor Stephen Hook and many others continue to support the Food Pantry's mission by keeping the pantry supplied, distributing items to the community and keeping people up-to-date via the town website and Food Pantry's Facebook page.
The vast majority of the food and supplies that we offer do not come to us free; we have to purchase them. Many things, like meat protein, is expensive and makes it difficult for us to afford. So we have to be able to substitute with what we can afford, and use what funds we have.
Anyone wishing to make a financial donation to the food pantry may do so by mailing a check made payable to "Mellenville/Philmont Food Pantry" to the Claverack Town Office, PO Box V, Mellenville, NY 12544.
CLAVERACK REPUBLICAN CLUB PLANS ROADSIDE CLEANUP
The Claverack Republican Club will conduct a roadside cleanup of trash, litter and debris Saturday, May 22, 2021 in the Claverack Hamlet.
A number of years ago the group “adopted” three one-mile stretches of road leading to the traffic light in the center of the hamlet and every year members and volunteers, in conjunction with the NYS Department of Transportation, pick up the trash that has accumulated along the sides of those three stretches.
The cleanup will be held Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 9:00 AM. Volunteers will meet in the A.B. Shaw Firehouse parking lot (must be at least 12-years old).
Coffee and donuts will be provided.
Volunteers need not be a member of the Claverack Republican Club.... all are welcome!
