Seasons Greeting’s for the Happiest of Holidays!
Tis the season to be thankful, merry & bright! All are welcomed to the Thomas Felten Memorial Park on December 7th, 2013 for our Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at 6pm. A little Elf told me that Santa will be stopping by to visit with all the children. So start making a list, as I’m sure Santa will be checking it twice! Back by popular demand, the Town of Plattekill Police Benevolent Association will be raffling off a 50” SONY LED HDTV to one lucky winner at the Christmas Tree Lighting. Only a limited amount of tickets will be sold. Stop by the Town Clerk’s office to buy a ticket for $5.00, and good luck!
As the season grows near, often our schedules leave little time to reflect on what joys are important. Weather can sometimes dampen our travels causing us to rush in haste. Please take a moment to slow down and enjoy each memory old & new.
Warm wishes and safe travels are in the forecast for you and your families during this holiday season. From all of us at the Town Hall, be safe, be responsible and ENJOY!
Sincerest of Holiday Joy,
Loyal and dedicated to the Town he loved, Bruce Loertscher was known for wearing many hats in the Town of Plattekill throughout his lifetime. Loving husband and father, loyal friend and dedicated farmer.
Bruce always made time for Plattekill. From 1994-2001, Bruce served on the Planning Board holding the positions of Chairman, Vice-Chairman and as an Alternate to the UC Planning Board. He was elected Councilman in 2002-2005 and then was elected as Supervisor in 2006.
Bruce loved the summertime events at the park. You knew Bruce was happy when he was driving the tractor and pulling folk’s around in the hay wagon at Plattekill Day. He would also get a big kick out of the ever-growing Red, White & Blue 4th of July Fireworks Event at the park. It gave him a chance to mingle with the residents and catch up with the latest and greatest.
With dignity and class, Bruce Loertscher was laid to rest on a cold day in February. To say it was a sad day is an understatement. His smile would no longer light up a room or comfort a friend. But his spirit will live on forever.
