CROWN POINT - The all-volunteer thrift shop, Second Blessings, sponsored by First Congregational Church of Crown Point and staffed by volunteers from across the community closed for the winter months. Second Blessings is housed in the General John Hammond Chapel located on the corners of Creek Road and NYS Route 9N/22. The Building, constructed of beautiful red brick, was the private home of the Hammond's and constructed in the early 1820's. Hence, there is little to no insulation throughout the building. While there is an oil burner, it's efficiency is limited.
As an aside, the Kosmider family has all-but completed renovating the beautiful Auditorium located on the second floor of this historic building.
Once used as a public meeting place, it will again be available following it's completion!
Due to the excellent supply of clothing: winter coats, sweaters and other warm clothing, plans are in the the making to open the doors on Tuesday, Dec. 15 between 10-3 p.m. to allow our patrons one last opportunity to take home needed items.
During the winter months, Second Blessings will be available to answer any call during an emergency by calling the Church at 597-3398.
