STONE SOUP – CATSKILL
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to STONE SOUP – CATSKILL, a volunteer effort headed by Michelle Williams of the Mermaid Cafe and Bittersweet Ice Cream, which delivers a meal of soup and bread three times a week to people who have financial need or cannot leave home to get food. Thanks to you, we met our goal!
The project is now accepting additional recipients in Catskill. If you would like to schedule Stone Soup deliveries, please fill out and return the simple request form at the Welcome to Catskill website. Request forms are also available from the Catskill Community Center Food Pantry on Wednesday afternoons between 1:30 and 3:00 p.m.
The Future of the Community Center
The Catskill Community Center has served the families of the Town of Catskill for many years, building on the legacy of the Catskill Boys and Girls Club, the Boys Club, and the YMCA going back to the early 1900s.
As our facility ages and as the needs of the community we serve change, the Board of Directors has decided to evaluate the current and future role of the Center.
In an effort to serve the Town of Catskill community effectively, the Catskill Community Center is exploring several options for its future operations. During this process, we will be gathering facts and information on a wide variety of subjects including existing and planned community programming, potential sources for continued funding of operations and best uses of the Community Center facility.
With that in mind, the Board of Directors will be analyzing the condition and value of the Community Center building with the possibility of listing it for sale on the real estate market. Once the Board of Directors collects all of this data, a decision will be made as to what the future operations of the Catskill Community Center will be.
We appreciate the community’s ongoing support of the Catskill Community Center and will continue to serve community members of all ages during this process.
