Just a few weeks to go and 2014 is over – hard to believe. Just a couple of outstanding events here to round out the year. We’re already planning our programs for next year. Please let us know if there is something special you’d like to see happening here. That’s what we’re all about – making sure that we’re responding to your needs and desires.
It’s time to wish you all the happiest of holidays and to thank you again for your generous support of what we do here.
We want to say a special Thank You to Peekamoose Restaurant and Tap Room. The Pine Hill Community Center has been named the recipient of Peekamoose’s Good Deeds wine program. We will receive one dollar for every glass of the Good Deeds selection of wines through the end of March. We received our first check this week, and we’re thrilled. Please keep patronizing Peekamoose and keep on choosing the special wines that benefit us.
Last week’s Chili Festival and Craft Fair was very special. Thanks to Florence Hamling, Jaimie DeForest, Karen Rauter and the Zephyr Restaurant we had six unique chilis and by the end of the day there was not a bean left in any of the pots. Thank you to all who turned out – thanks to the vendors and to all the volunteers.
Tonight (Dec. 12) is the last Catskill Mountain Acoustic Slow Jam of the year. Come along with your acoustic instrument and join with other musicians in playing together and learning new tunes. 6-9pm. Free.
Saturday, Dec. 13 – Catskill Cabaradio will have some surprises in store.

NOTICE: THERE WILL BE NO TUESDAYS TOGETHER FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH. THIS WONDERFUL PROGRAM HAS BEEN POORLY (NOT AT ALL) ATTENDED FOR THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS, AND WE HAVE TO DECIDE IF WE CAN CONTINUE TO SUPPORT IT. . LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT IT TO HAPPEN, OTHERWISE, WE’LL PLAN CHILDREN’S PROGRAMMING THAT HAS MORE APPEAL.
ALSO, NO SUPER SATURDAY ON DEC. 13, AS WE WILL BE SETTING UP FOR CATSKILL CABARADIO.
CHECK OUR CALENDAR FOR ACTIVE SENIOR HOLIDAY SCHEDULE. OR CALL TO INQUIRE.
