Kinderhook Playground Program — The Town Board has again budgeted for resident children to attend the Val-Kin Playground Program at Volunteer Park at no cost to their families. There are some minor changes this year — before you will be allowed to register with the Town of Kinderhook, you MUST register with the Town of Stuyvesant Town Clerk. You will have to provide proof of residency and you will receive a “receipt” from the Clerk for that registration. No “free Stuyvesant resident registration” will be processed by the Town of Kinderhook without a receipt from the Stuyvesant Town Clerk.
Also new this year, no late registrations will be accepted after July 4th. If your child or children are not registered with the Town of Kinderhook before July 4th they will not able to attend the program for this summer. Forms are available on the Val Kin Playground FB page or by following this link: Val Kin Playground
Historic Stuyvesant Day / Ken Hummel Memorial Races — Sat., August 10th. This year the theme will be “Cemeteries and Veterans”. The races will include a kids’ race, a 5K race, a 5K Walk, and the Duathlon (something for everyone). Profits from the race event are for scholarship(s) at ICC for students going on to college or trade school to study agriculture or carpentry.
Senior Citizen of the Year — We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Richard Moran for being named Columbia County Senior Citizen of the Year. Mr. Moran is the “behind the scenes” guy for many public events that happen in Stuyvesant. He was nominated by many of our residents and was chosen by the Columbia County Office for the Aging.
