History of local churches on display
The Warrensburgh Museum of Local History is now hosting an exhibit portraying the history of churches in Warrensburg, and to date it’s been well received.
The exhibit includes photographs, recollections, artifacts and recorded history. The exhibit will run until Mothers Day May, 11. Christian churches played an important part in the life of the early settlers and continue to be an important part in the vitality and well-being of our community for centuries.
The museum is located at 3754 Main St. in the VFW Building in Warrensburg, and is open Sundays 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and on Wednesdays noon to 4 p.m.. Admission is free. Entrance and parking are at the rear. The museum is operated for the Town of Warrensburg by the Warrensburgh Historical Society. For details, call 623-2207.
Collect pull-tabs for charity
Pull tabs are being collected at Direct Deposit Redemption Center in a charitable effort to help support the mission of the Ronald McDonald House effort in Albany.
Pull-tabs on beverage cans, and food containers consist of a high-grade aluminum that commands a premium price when recycled.
For some time, Ann Lloyd has been conducting a drive to urge people to collect the pull-tabs for recycling, to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House charities.
Last December, the effort of Lloyd and Direct Deposit employees resulted in 433,000 tabs — totalling 227 pounds — being collected and donated.
This week, Lloyd expressed thanks to all those who have been taking time to collect the pull-tabs.
Those with questions about the drive can contact Lloyd at 623-2321 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
