Palaia Winery will be providing the venue for Kenfest for MS on July 28, 2018, 12-10pm. “Kenfest” is a charity event in its 11th year and the brainchild of Ken and Linda Nicastro of Monroe, NY. Kenfest started in their back yard for their musician friends and they jokingly named it Kenfest. A friend built a stage that grew in size each year and last year it was 3 tiers and 36 feet long. As the word of this great event spread, Kenfest 2016 entertained over 200 people and it has now outgrown their backyard. Last year the donation to MS was one of the highest in the Southern New York Chapter and with the move to Palaia Winery, they raised over $7500 last year. Bring a chair or blanket and join Ken, Linda and a host of great local bands for a day of music, huge raffle, vendors on the lawn, wine, beer, wine slushies and food. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, all sponsorships will include a sign on the stage and free admission for two. The winery will be open from 11-10pm as Palaia joins the Nicastros in their efforts to raise money for MS.
Admission: $10 per person, kids under 13 free.

Seniors Moved to Knights of Columbus as Renovations of the Carmel Friendship Center are Underway

0

Putnam County MaryEllen Odell announced that the County has begun the renovations of the Carmel Friendship Center at the Donald B. Smith Campus in Carmel. The new configuration of the building will allow additional services, more room for recreational activities, a larger dining area and an updated kitchen facility.

While the work is being done on the building, the nutrition center and recreational activities will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Fair Street in Carmel.

“Putnam County has the fastest growing and largest percentage of senior population in New York State and we need to ensure that we have the ability to properly serve our aging population, so they can live at home longer and healthier,” said County Executive Odell. “Thanks to money from Senator Terrence Murphy we are able to move the administrative offices of the Office of Senior Resources to another building on the campus and reinvigorate the building to better serve the seniors. I also truly appreciate the graciousness of Knights for allowing the seniors to use this building during our time of renovation.”

Sen. Murphy secured $550,000 in funding from New York State to use toward the revamp.

“One in every four residents in Putnam County is a senior citizen. They are an asset to the community and we rely on them for their wisdom and experience,” said Senator Terrence Murphy. “The renovation will make the building safer, and give it a more modern look, allowing the Center to reach out to and engage more seniors in their quality services and programs.”

The renovations will transform the Center into a state-of-the-art, energy efficient facility with a room for information and technology, as well as an area to expand the Center’s senior programs.

Additional space dedicated for use by seniors include:

  • An improved and expanded exercise area
  • An improved and expanded arts and crafts room
  • New interview and counseling rooms
  • Expanded nutrition counseling rooms
  • Improved pantry and lunch areas
  • And improved access to the building for the handicapped

The construction of the Carmel Friendship Center is expected to take about six months.

 

Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell and Senator Terence Murphy welcome the seniors to the Knights of Columbus Hall, where lunch will be served and recreational activities will be held while the renovation of the Carmel Friendship Center is underway.
