The parking lot at Twin Maples became a mini carnival for the day on Saturday, September 23, with clowns, games, prizes pets and snacks, all sponsored by the Ulster Savings Bank branch in the Twin Maples Plaza.
The Glasco Fire Department brought an engine and the company’s recently-acquired rescue boat. According to firefighters, the twin 200-horsepower Mercury engines can move the craft up to 50 miles per hour. The boat’s first outing was in a search for an airplane that crashed in the Hudson River off Dutchess County in May. The firefighting equipment drew large numbers of children fascinated with the close-up look.
The bank provided pumpkin painting and tie-dying of T-shirts, while M and N Productions, which produces a television show called U Can be on TV offered games, including prizes that ranged up to a bicycle.
