The amount of volunteers who come out to help at all the booths, games, barns, displays food tents, etc, is incredible.

Everyone did a fantastic job and all went well.

Fair Co-Chair Karen McCausland put this out on Facebook Sunday night:

On behalf of the entire Country Fair Committee, I’d like to take this moment to thank all of the townspeople and visitors from other towns who came to the fair over the past couple of days. Your loyalty is overwhelming. We had another wonderful fair and we hope you enjoyed it!

A special thank you goes out to our amazing support staff – all those volunteers that willingly take on all of the tasks that need to be done at the fair such as cooking and working in the food tents, parking, staffing buildings, and being great ambassadors to the fair and to our town.

And to my fellow committee members, thank you for making Kevin Monck and my jobs as co-chairs so much easier than We could ever imagine.

Thank you so much!!

Catalde fireA Go Fund Me page has been established to help residents displaced by Sept. 11 fire.

Narrative:

Bob Catalde is a long time teacher, resident, and alumni of the Amity community.

As a member of the Orange Youth Board Service and Veterans’ Association, Bob has always given back to his community.

On September 11, 2016 Bob’s home was destroyed in a house fire, leaving he and his family displaced and his home in need of rebuilding.

Bob cannot simultaneously pay the costs of a temporary rental home and his mortgage and needs our financial help.

This is our opportunity to give back to a man who has given so much of himself to our Amity community.

Please donate to help Bob and his family recover from their home fire.
