If you are trick-or-treating on the Pittsfield Green this Halloween, be sure to stop in and see us. We have free new books for trick-or-treaters to keep! If building renovations have started, look for us at the town hall. Come in, warm up, and visit with friends and neighbors.
New this year we're sponsoring a candy drop. It's time to help out the generous homes in and around the green who have been buying tons of candy over the years for kids who love to trick or treat in Pittsfield. Drop your candy donations at the Pitt Stop between now and October 24th and we'll see that the treats distributed among those homes.
Where your $ go
We told you all that the money we raised with our pig kissing jars and hurricane assistance jars would help our community recover from Irene. We're happy to report we have been able to supplement the work of the Church's Pittsfield Hurricane Relief fund. We are working on debris removal. We have paid for two dumpsters for flood debris so far, they are in town already. We hope this will help all households with flood damage, and help get our town cleaned up. Unfortunately, dumpsters are expensive. If you would like to help out with this project, drop us a line.
Annual Book Sale at the Bazaar
At this year's Bazaar we earned $625 which will be used in our hurricane assistance efforts. All books were either donated, or weeded from our shelves. The books that were not sold will be taken to a good home.
