Inviting all Wallkill families to celebrate Halloween in Wallkill on Saturday, October 30, as a part of the hamlet’s fall community event series. Starting at 12 p.m., children dressed in costumes can take part in the Tumble Bus, where each can rock climb, do somersaults and other gymnastic moves. The Halloween fun continues with a hot dog lunch, refreshments, rock painting, and treat bags provided by co-sponsors Vision of Wallkill (VOW) and Town of Shawangunk.
Last week, nearly thirty young artists provided artwork for Wallkill’s Artwork Along the Sidewalk. Each entry is a vibrant interpretation of the artist’s Halloween spirit and are on display for everyone to admire while strolling or driving through the Hamlet. This artwork event is part of beautification project to create a more vibrant community and will remain on display until mid-November.
Throughout the month of October, community members are invited to show their “spirit’ by decorating their home or yard for the Haunted Hamlet of Wallkill. Participating households or businesses may post a photo and address (optional) to Vision of Wallkill’s Facebook page by October 28.
The Wallkill Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry are continuing their mission to assist community members in need of basic necessities. Many non-food items and some foods have been difficult to source, so they ask for your assistance in providing these necessary items including:
• Canned chili and canned fruit
• Hygiene products: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soaps, deodorant, razors
• Plastic wrap and aluminum foil
Your donated items can be brought to the food pantry located behind the Wallkill Reformed Church at 45 Bridge Street, Wallkill, NY 12589. If no one is present to collect your donated items, they can be placed in the large bins outside the pantry. Your monetary donations are warmly welcomed.
Checks can be made payable to the Wallkill Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry and mailed to PO Box 54, Wallkill NY 12589. For more information with upcoming projects and events, check VOW’s Facebook page or call/text (845) 527-6230.
