Spring Is In The Air!
After the unseasonably harsh winter we had it’s so nice to finally see the snow melting from our yards! And I have to admit, I can’t help but smile each morning when I hear the birds chirping happily! This can only mean one thing..SPRING is finally here! Spring brings longer days and sunny skies. That must mean Easter is on its way! Remember to gather up the kiddies and come by the Thomas Felten Memorial Park on April 4, 2015 at 10:00 AM for our annual Easter Egg Hunt! Rain date is set for April 11, 2015. If you look around real closely you might just get a glimpse of the Easter Bunny hopping around the park!
The Town board and I would like to Welcome Stephanie Doland as our new Assistant Recreation Director. Stephanie ran our youth summer camp program last season with ease! The level of professionalism and stability she provided was tenfold. This made last year’s summer session very successful. Stephanie is enthusiastic to jump right in and we are excited to see what fresh new ideas are to come! Once again, welcome aboard Stephanie Doland!
With spring pleasantly rolling into town, another much anticipated tradition to look forward to is the Town of Plattekill Memorial Day Parade! This year the Plattekill Veteran’s Committee has been working very hard to iron out every last detail to make this year’s parade the best yet! Show your patriotic colors and wear your stars and stripes proudly on May 23, 2015 to pay tribute to all who served in our Armed Forces and gave the ultimate sacrifice. Line up for the parade will start at 12:00 noon at the Plattekill Town Hall, step off will begin at 1:00 PM. Marching south along rte. 32, ending at the Thomas Felten Memorial Park. All are welcome to join us in a short Memorial followed with refreshments at the pavilion.
Lastly, I think it goes without saying that Ole’ Man Winter had been very busy this past winter season providing enough snow and ice to last us a lifetime! So let’s give a big THANKS to our Plattekill Highway Crews for their much appreciated efforts in keeping our roads clear and safe throughout this past relentless season!

2015 Annual Easter Egg Hunt ~ SUCCESS!
Children of all ages came out to meet the Easter Bunny and hunt for eggs at the Thomas Felten Memorial Park!
The ever growing event was a huge success! Children received a goody bag from Peter Cotton-Tail himself. The children gave hugs and praise to Peter with glee saying they couldn’t wait to see what next year will bring!
Eggs-A-Plenty! Laughter-Joy! Goody-Bags!
