From Tami Conine, 1st VP, Margaretville Hospital Auxiliary:
“As most of you know, the Margaretville Hospital Thrift Shop suffered from the wrath of Irene as well, and we are also without a home at the moment — but, we are working on getting things back in order and hope to start the reconstruction soon. The only thing salvaged from the store was the Fashion Show outfits which were stored on the second floor loft and remained unscathed by the water.
Our annual Fashion Show — this year’s theme was the ‘Four Seasons of the Catskills’ featuring fashions from the Store with tea and treats — was scheduled for this Saturday, September 17th at the Purcell Center. However, due to the present circumstances both with the Thrift Store and the Purcell Center, the show has been postponed.
If you purchased a ticket, please HOLD on to it. Details about the rescheduling will be posted here, at the Middletown website, at the Store and also on Channel 10 – MTC, on the local radio stations and updated in the Catskill Mountain News. Not sure at present exactly when but theshow will go on…”
