FLU/ PNEUMONIA / SHINGLES Clinic at Town Hall on August 29th from 9:30am to 1:00pm. Rite Aid will be present. I suggest anyone who is interested in getting their vaccines to bring their insurance cards with them, so that they can be processed. This is a great opportunity to avoid the rush at the pharmacy as well as to avoid having to make an appointment at the doctors office. No appointment necessary, but you can sign up in advance if you wish by calling 297 - 2744.
An update from the Town's new group: 'WIN' (Wappingers Interfaith Network)
Did you know that the United Methodist Church offers a free lunch to children under the age of 18 during the summer? This federally funded program is an effort to keep poverty stricken children from going hungry during the summer when school is closed. From 12 until 1pm lunches are available at the following locations:
Sheafe Road Trailer Park – 567 Sheafe Road; Veterans Field “Vets Field” – 41 N. Meiser Avenue; Mesier Park – intersection of Rt 9D and South Avenue ** On days when it rains ** alternate: United Methodist Church – 9 S. Mesier Avenue. To find a nearby location Text: FOOD to 877-877. A very special thank you to Pastor Dorsey for taking this mission on. Everyday children in our own community go hungry because of many contributing factors. During the school year, the school district is able to identify those in need and help them., but during the summer, many go hungry for days. This program helps children in our community get a nutritious meal. No questions asked, any child up to 18 will be fed.
Walk Drugs out of Our Community: was on June 26th. A special thank you to all who participated and helped out. The heroin epidemic is effecting all aspects of our community and we need to raise awareness. Please watch a part of our event @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3z0LViA-pE&feature=youtu.be
