Last week I took a load of school supplies donated by our members to the Intermediate School.
 
There were a few students gathered in front.  I asked them to help me carry them inside.  They quickly responded and the chore was done.  They were part of the "Youth Ending Hunger" Club and had been working on the school supply project.
 
I went inside and had a conversation with two ladies who were sorting through the supplies and checking their lists.
 
When I asked " where are these poor people in our apparently affluent Goshen?"
 
They promptly explained that they are everywhere.  There are lots of apartment buildings crammed with people.  Some live in buildings behind homes, hidden from the road.  Some even live in garages.  Man are rural.
 
They get the names and addresses from Pastors, Rabbis, social workers, teachers, and civic agencies.  So, in spite of what you may think is a nonexistent component of our town, there are plenty of very needy children.
 
Where I live, there is a family whose single mother is on welfare and can been seen going through trash cans on the block in search of  redeemable cans and bottles.
 
Please get to the store and buy the school supplies so that these children can start school with the necessary equipment.
 
Most of us live in nice homes and drive nice cars.  A few dollars to provide for the needy is not much to ask.

Braeside - Museum Village

About 60 campers from Braeside Camp made candles, tasted churned butter, printed posters, fed chickens and goats and learned much about life in the 19th century at Museum Village this week. There was also a lot of interest in learning what school was like in a one-room school house 200 years ago.
All of this was made possible with the support of the Rotary Clubs of Goshen, Middletown, Newburgh and Wallkill East and the considerable discounts from Mid-City transit and Museum Village.
This is the first of two scheduled excursions to Museum Village by campers in the two-week sessions. The next is planned for August 3.
Most of these campers would not normally have had this kind of opportunity without our clubs' support.
