In wake of flood, Fort Plain appreciates help
To the Editor:
I am a native of Fort Plain and happened upon The Altamont Enterprise at the home of my girlfriend's parents. I found a nice piece by Ellen Zunon about the recent flooding that hit the small village on the Otsquago Creek, 40 minutes northwest of your village.
I really enjoyed the piece and appreciate all the people who've been so kind to help out, including my friend Simon, also from Altamont.
In addition, I will mention that we're having a big flood relief fund-raiser in downtown Fort Plain's Haslett Park this Saturday, Aug. 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with live music; excellent food; some really great drawings including a kayak, Cannondale bicycle, Carhart work clothes, and much more, all benefiting those who lost so much in the devastation.
People can go online to www.MohawkValleyCollective.com where they can download a flyer about the fund-raiser, pre-buy a chicken barbecue dinner, as well as get raffle tickets.
