Peace on Earth, Good Will to All!
The holidays are fast approaching here in Plattekill. Around our parts, what makes the Christmas season merry and bright? The annual Lighting of our Town’s Christmas Tree! Oh, come, all ye faithful (on December 6th at 6pm) to sing traditional holiday carols, (accompanied by the Modena Fire Department Choir) as we light our symbolic Christmas Tree in the Town Park. Enjoy hot chocolate, donuts and warm up by the bonfire! I hear on good authority that the Big Guy will be stopping by and checking his list..twice! So make sure the little ones have lists ready for Santa!
There is still time to support our Town of Plattekill Police Benevolent Association and purchase a raffle ticket. For a $5.00 donation, you could be the proud winner of a 46″ Samsung LED HDTV! Tickets are available at the Town Clerks office. The drawing will be held on December 13, 2014. Good Luck!
As the days grow shorter and the cold sets in, please be mindful of the weather conditions. Drive a bit slower and leave space between you and others. Keep an old blanket in your car. You never know when you might have car trouble, at least you can stay warm until help arrives.
Let’s all pitch in and help out our Highway Crews during this winter season. Please remember NOT to park vehicles on Town roads during ice or snow storms and for 24 hours following inclement weather. Let’s give the Crews ample time to safely clear our roadways!
Wishing All A Joyous Holiday Season!
