FRIDA'S STORY:
"I came into this world loving bread, and that's the way I'm goin' out!"
Dave "Dave-the-Baker" Meltzer, has plied his trade in every kind of bakery imaginable - from behemoth commercial operations to small local bakeries. From "Franken Dough" to artisan eats. He's intimate with bagels and bialys and passionate about confections.
This attracted Bob Pollock, owner of the luxurious Hudson Valley estate known as Buttermilk Falls Inn + Spa and Henry's at the Farm Restaurant in Milton, NY. He arranged for Dave to provide breads for his inn and restaurant. Says Pollock to Dave, "Let's build a bakery!" Frida's  shares the name with Pollock's daughter, just as Henry's at the Farm restaurant bears his son's name.

Managed by Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa Frida's Bakery & Café brings the quality and service you've come to know and love to the Baking World! Offering Artisan Breads, Pastries, and Coffees Frida's also provides the highest quality breakfast and lunches.

Leith of Life Update 

Our effort thus far has been successful raising over $16,000 for Leith’s trust and, most importantly, raising Leith’s spirit by expressing our love and support.  An amazing team of volunteers has consistently grown and become ever more impressive in this endeavor.  Many of the volunteers are professionals in their corresponding role and this effort never would have come this far without this outpouring of support.  Following is a status update:

Up to now Leith has been through two brain surgeries.  Although both seemed successful, he has recently been diagnosed with a new brain tumor in the middle of his head, which can’t safely be removed.  He is going back into the Hospital later this week to go under treatment for this new tumor and, as in the past, he would like privacy during the hospital stay and for a week or two thereafter.  He does look at his web site and Facebook page, both listed below, so any messages will be received and appreciated.

Web Site: www.leithoflife.org

Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Leith-of-Life/1509636589303159

Our fundraising effort has moved away from the Paypal direct and Facebook crowdfunding models to a more professional non-profit organization where the donations are tax deductible.  Again, all of the donations from the concert and a corresponding silent auction will be collected through the nonprofit HelpHOPELive to pay Rogovin’s uncovered medical expenses and healthcare needs.  Although we have raised over $16,000, our goal is $40,000 so we still have a long way to go.

Fundraising Web Site: https://m.helphopelive.org/campaign/6299

A video has been produced about Leith’s contribution to the Day School, and our lives in general, which can be viewed with the link below:

Leith of Life Video: http://vimeo.com/120851845

Other than fundraising, our effort has been in producing one or more benefits for Leith with hope of raising money for uncovered medical needs   A benefit is planned at the Bearsville Theater on Saturday, April 11 at 5pm.  Below is a link to the Kingston Freeman article covering this event.  This benefit is largely Leith’s vision and is primarily intended for Leith’s friends and loved ones of all ages to enjoy their time with Leith.  Many local artists have volunteered and Leith’s requested artists are confirmed.  The artwork for the event is enclosed.  Signed, hand made silkscreen prints of this artwork will be available in limited numbers at the event for purchase.  There will also be a silent auction at the event.  This auction is the primary source of fundraising and is currently the best way for us to have the biggest impact.  Anyone wanting to volunteer time or valuables for the auction should contact Gillian directly at gcilibrasi@gmail.com.  Thank you for everything you’ve done so far and we’ll see you on the 11th.

Long Term Care Awareness

Local insurance Agent urges residents to make sure they have a plan in place for Long Term Care

“Everyone over the age of 40 who hasn't done long-term care planning needs to take a look at this important piece of their retirement planning puzzle,” says Louis Werbalowsky long term care insurance agent, of Woodstock. “Many Americans who are working and saving for retirement have not considered how long term care could derail the plans they’ve made for retirement. When considering the cost of care, it’s easy to imagine a sizeable portion of savings may be needed for long term care. I find that many people prefer to stay at home for as long as possible. They want to have some control that enables flexibility in making choices that impact care.”

From insurance and public programs, private family support, self funding or even a combination of these, there are many options to consider to help manage this risk as part of your retirement strategy.”

If long term care insurance is part of your strategy, it’s important to understand the options, and what drives policy costs. Time is a person’s enemy when it comes to long term care planning. Consider these facts:

• Generally, every year that someone delays the purchase, the premium increases.
• Once health has declined and the need for care is a foregone conclusion, long term care insurance may not be an option to buy.

A long term care insurance policy may enable you to help protect your future at a cost you might find surprisingly affordable.

 "While we can choose anytime to start saving for retirement, to draft a will or to fund a trust, the same cannot be said for the purchase of long term care insurance. A change in health can make it impossible to qualify for long term care insurance,” explained Werbalowsky. “Long Term Care Awareness Month is a great time to look into understanding your options and creating a plan for yourself and your family members.

Vassar Brothers Medical Center Named One Of Healthgrades America’s 100 Best Hospitals 

Vassar Brothers Medical Center has received the 2015 America’s 100 Best Hospitals Award, according to Healthgrades, an online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals.

The distinction puts Vassar Brothers Medical Center in the top 2 percent of the more than 4,500 hospitals evaluated nationwide for its superior clinical performance.

“We are grateful to receive this recognition,” said Dr. Ronald Tatelbaum, chief medical officer of Health Quest, the nonprofit parent organization of Vassar Brothers Medical Center. “It’s the day-to-day care of the patient and his or her outcome that matters the most to us. All outcomes are dependent on the outstanding contributions of all healthcare professionals.”

Between 2011 and 2013, award recipients had a 26.4 percent lower risk adjusted mortality rate across 19 procedures and conditions where in-hospital mortality rate was the clinical outcome, compared to all other hospitals. During this period, if all other hospitals had performed at the level of the 100 Best Hospitals Award recipients, 172,626 lives could have potentially been saved.

It is estimated that patients treated at these 100 best hospitals had, on average, a 29.3 percent lower risk of dying from heart failure than if treated at a hospital that did not receive the award.

In New York, there were four hospitals among 11 eligible hospitals for the America’s 100 Best Hospitals Award™. Vassar Brothers Medical Center is among the hospitals in the New York region with some of the best quality care across at least 21 of 32 common inpatient conditions and procedures evaluated by Healthgrades over a period of at least three years.

“The Healthgrades performance shows that not all hospitals perform equally, so it is important that consumers do their homework when selecting a hospital,” Evan Marks, Healthgrades’ chief strategy officer said. “Those hospitals that have achieved the Healthgrades distinction have demonstrated a commitment to exceptional clinical quality care over an extended period of time.”

Center for Spectrum Services Upcoming & News 

Autism Awareness Month
April is Autism Awareness Month. Center for Spectrum Services is your source for news, information, insight, and more on autism here in the Hudson Valley.

For more information: www.centerforspectrumservices.org
Contacts: David Juhren or Susan Buckler

Upcoming Center for Spectrum Service Events:

Partners for Autism: Spectrum Services is partnering with local businesses to raise funds. Partners will help by increasing autism awareness, and participate in the solicitation of donations, like putting out donation canisters and literature. Contributions will support the many programs and services, such as Spectrum Service's Clinic, which offers diagnostic services, consultations, social skills groups, and individual counseling.

Playgrounds Project: The construction of Spectrum Services' new playground for its Ellenville campus is a main focus this month, along with finishing touches to new playgrounds at its Kingston campus. Using its "Playgrounds as Classrooms" model, students with autism are taught on the playground to improve their skills in social interaction, communication, and imaginative play, thus improving deficits that are usually seen with children on the autism spectrum. These new playgrounds are designed for children with autism in mind. Individuals, businesses, and community groups are being recruited to help by donating funds, supplies and equipment, or volunteering time the day of the build; Saturday, May 16th.

Autism Walk and Expo 2015: Spectrum Services will be taking part in this year's Autism Walk and Expo at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds on April 26th. We'll have a contingent of walkers, including students, graduates of our program, and staff, as well as distributing literature and information.

Light it Up Blue
What started out as a few friends throwing a party to raise money and awareness for Autism, has grown into a free, public event not to be missed, where hundreds attend. Light It Up Blue has designated Spectrum Services as the organization that all funds raised will be donated. Saturday, April 25th 4pm at Middletown Holiday Inn.

Visit our website at www.centerforspectrumservices.org for more information.

The Center for Spectrum Services provides programs and services to individuals in the Hudson Valley with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Our expertise in education, clinical needs, and support programming to individuals with autism and their families is well established, and grounded in the principals of care, a nourishing environment, and the latest in educational techniques and clinical best practices. Our professional staff are sought by school districts, agencies, organizations, and professionals for training and consultations in working with individuals with autism. We're the Center for Spectrum Services, and we've been brightening the lives of people with autism since 1976.

- Kingston Farmers Market  
HealthAlliance is a proud sponsor of Kingston’s Midtown farmers Market, which runs from 4:30 to 8 p.m. every Tuesday until September 24 at the spiegeltent on Broadway (next to upac). Come by to take advantage of healthy, locally grown produce!

When buying fresh greens this fall, look for crisp, brightly colored bunches that have no limp or damaged leaves. Wrap them loosely in plastic and keep them in the refrigerator crisper. Most greens last only a few days, so get cooking quickly for maximum nutrition.

It’s not just when, but how, you cook them that makes the most of greens’ health-promoting qualities. Chop greens right before you cook or eat them to avoid nutrient loss due to air exposure. Steam, microwave, or stir-fry rather than boiling, since nutrients can also leach into water.

And be careful what you drink with your greens. Coffee and tea limit your body’s absorption of iron, so save them for an after-meal sip. Consider pairing spinach with orange juice or citrus fruits, since vitamin c helps with iron uptake.

April 11 - “Leith of Life: Reggae Benefit Concert for Leith Rogovin” 

April 11 - “Leith of Life: Reggae Benefit Concert for Leith Rogovin” 
Poster Designed by Ebon Heath

The Florence Belsky Charitable Foundation will be co-hosting a reggae concert and benefit for Woodstock teacher Leith Rogovin entitled “Leith of Life: Reggae Dance Celebration and Benefit for Leith”

On Saturday, April 11, 2015
at the Bearsville Theater, 291 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY (doors open at 2pm).

Groove to the smooth sounds of reggae during the  “Leith of Life: Reggae Concert and Benefit” in honor of local cancer patient Leith Rogovin.

Enjoy a family-friendly early show starting at 5 p.m, emceed by Woodstock jazz artist and personality, Studio Stu. 
A late-night show will kick off at 8:30 p.m. with renowned performer DJ Downbeat the Ruler and guests Brigadier Jerry, Jeremiah, Sister Nancy, Jah Eyes and Ranking Joe, plus many local musicians and surprise guests. Leah Boss, Founder of Reggae Woodstock, will emcee the late show.

Leith Rogovin has been a teacher at the Woodstock Day School for over 20 years and has been an involved member of the Woodstock community, helping kids on a daily basis. He was diagnosed with brain cancer last summer and has already had 2 surgeries and has undergone chemo and radiation therapy. He is currently enrolled in a clinical trial in NYC for cancer patients and commutes bi-weekly from his job at the Woodstock day School for treatments. 

An irrevocable trust has been set up by his family and friends to help cover the costs of care.  Along with dedicated friends of Leith and members of the Woodstock community, the Florence Belsky Charitable Foundation is organizing a benefit concert to raise money to provide for Leith’s treatment. Monies will be collected through HelpHopeLive (www.helphopelive.org), a nationally rated non-profit organization that assists in raising money for the care of people with catastrophic illnesses.  The Leith Compassion Fund will cover Leith’s medical and related expenses, not covered by health insurance, as well as travel for treatment. Any monies not needed by Leith will go into a Compassion Fund for other teachers from the Woodstock Day School who suffer catastrophic illnesses in the future.

The concert will not only provide a valuable benefit for Leith and his fellow teachers at WDS, but will also provide a night of entertainment for families and reggae fans alike.   The concert will feature a video showing the highlights of Leith’s life and good deeds in the Woodstock community and there will also be a silent auction to raise money for Leith’s Compassion Fund.  There will also be a performance by the Woodstock Day School performers and alumni.  A short PSA has been produced by some of the teachers, students and parents from the Woodstock Day School explaining Leith’s many contributions to the entire Woodstock community: http://vimeo.com/120851845  

Tickets are $25.00 (general admission) and $50  (reserved seats) and will include admission to the family oriented early show, as well as the late night reggae show.  Kids and seniors are free.

According to Susan Hereth, one of the many volunteer organizers of the event , “"Leith has shared his magic with the children and families in our community for over two decades. He has been a friend to many of us in the Woodstock area for the last 30 years.  He has given us all 100% of his heart. It's time for us all to rally and reflect back his love. Ask how you can help & see you at the benefit!"

Can’t make the concert? Donations can be made to a fundraising campaign in honor of Rogovin at www.helphopelive.org or by calling 800.642.8399. Checks can also be mailed “in honor of Leith Rogovin” to HelpHOPELive: 2 Radnor Corporate Ctr., Suite 100, 100 Matsonford Road, Radnor, Pa. 19087. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and all funds raised will directly benefit Rogovin’s medical expenses through HelpHOPELive’s New York Catastrophic Illness Fund.

HelpHOPELive is a national nonprofit that specializes in engaging communities in fundraising campaigns for people who need a transplant or are affected by a catastrophic injury or illness. Since 1983, campaigns organized by HelpHOPELive have raised over $100 million to pay patient expenses.

The Kingston YMCA Farm Project kicks off its second season with a Spring Kick-Off Fundraising event at the Anchor on March 24 from 6-9 pm.  This is an “all ages” event with activities for kids.  Drink and food specials will be featured and the Anchor will donate 10% of their earnings to the Farm Project.  There will be a raffle and silent auction with many prizes, including many hand-knitted items, donated by local businesses: The Yoga House, Shuniya, Duo Bistro, Le Shag, Elephant, The Chronogram, Pirate Upholstery, Jay Teske Leather Co, O+ Festival, Yum Yum, The Anchor, Mohonk Preserve, Vanessa Vera Massage. Suggested donation is $10/adult and kids are free; no one will be turned away! The Anchor (http://theanchorkingston.com/) is located at 744 Broadway in Kingston.

Community Work Weekend - April 11 and 12 from 10 am - 2 pm
We invite everyone to join us at the Farm for a fun workday to prepare the farm for a new, productive year!  Participants will shovel, weed and seed the ground for a bountiful second season.  Tools are provided and all ages are welcome!

About the Kingston YMCA Farm Project:  Located on a previously vacant lot behind the YMCA on Broadway, the Kingston YMCA Farm Project started in 2014. Its mission is to educate and empower young people by directly engaging them in sustainable food production on an urban farm.  Participants learn and practice the skills to produce their own food and to make healthy choices throughout their lifetime, while increasing the community’s access to fresh produce.

In the second year, the Farm Project will continue its successful food production and education programs. In addition it will partner with the Chef's Consortium to bring hands-on cooking and recipe tasting to the young people working in the garden.  The Dig Kids will be expanded to employ six youth for 6 hours a week, deepening their work in the garden, at the farm stand, and developing leadership.  Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of the Hudson Valley a refrigerator was purchased enabling more produce to be harvested and stored and sold within Midtown

The Kingston YMCA Farm Project is supported by Alcoa Foundation, Creating Healthy Places to Live Work and Play (a project of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County), Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley, Rondout Savings Bank and the Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley.

April 13 - Vassar Brothers To Screen “Consider the Conversation” Film About End-of-Life Care 

To bring awareness to end-of-life decision-making, Vassar Brothers Medical Center and Hudson Valley Hospice will present the documentary “Consider the Conversation” at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 13, in the hospital’s conference room B, 45 Reade Place, Poughkeepsie.

The award-winning film discusses the emotional, physical and social challenges at the end of life through thought-provoking personal accounts. It sheds light on the great divide separating the care people say they want in their final days with the reality of care given, including aggressive therapies.

After the film, Dr. Mary Dunne, palliative medicine consulting physician at Vassar Brothers Medical Center, will lead a panel of medical experts who can answer audience questions.

“We hope this event helps facilitate a conversation about the comfort and support available for people and families touched by terminal illness,” said Rich Trocino, president and CEO of Hudson Valley Hospice.

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Valet parking is available. Reservations by April 8 are required by calling 845-790-9356. For information, reach John Nelson at jnelson2@health-quest.org or 845-483-6418.

April 14 - Good Eats For A Good Cause: The Taste Of Rhinebeck Returns 

The Taste of Rhinebeck will once again offer participants the chance to enjoy gourmet eats and raise money for a great cause.

This festive cuisine crawl returns in its 11th year from 6 to 9 p.m. April 14, offering participants samples from about 25 local culinary venues. It is organized by the Northern Dutchess Hospital Foundation. All proceeds benefit the hospital.

Guests enjoy strolling to the village restaurants, spirit shops and town eateries hosted by retailers. Each location features one menu item ­­- an appetizer, main course, dessert or beverage. Some offer more.

“We really want this to be an enjoyable night out that gives our local businesses exposure while raising money for the hospital,” said Dawn Morrison, executive director of the foundation.

It’s also a competition. Ballot cards are collected at the end of the night. Winners of the best dishes and drink are announced promptly. Last year, the People’s Choice Overall went to Le Petit Bistro and the Chef’s Choice Overall was the Tavern at the Beekman Arms.

New this year, a category was created in honor of the late founder of Samuel’s of Rhinebeck - the Ira J. Gutner Hospitality Award.

“Ira was a generous soul,” Morrison said. “He provided many donations to the hospital for fundraising campaigns and events. He never said no.”

The cost is $75 per person through April 7 and $100 from April 8-14.  For information or to register, visit www.tasteofrhinebeck.com, call 845-871-1711 or email NDHevents@health-quest.org

April 24 - Free Caregiver Seminar

RCAL presents: Caring Connections FREE Annual Family
Caregiver Conference. 

Caring Connections, an organization that provides regular support groups and educational seminars & conferences for Family Caregivers in Ulster County.  The conference will be held on April 24, 2015 at the VFW Hall on 9W by-pass in Kingston, N.Y.. 8:00am to 4:00pm. Cost is FREE, registration is required.  Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

This seminar will educate and empower the Family Caregiver by addressing important issues faced by them and provide an opportunity for the Caregivers to interact with other Family Caregivers.  Now more than ever, Family Caregivers need to be equipped with the sound tools and support they need to take care of their loved ones.  Through education and empowerment, the Family Caregiver will experience fewer incidences of burnout, depression, isolation and frustration.    
According to the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA), in a single year, more than 65 million people provide free care for chronically ill, disabled or aged relatives or friends.  The cost of such care is estimated to be more than $450 billion annually, almost twice as much as is actually spent on Medicaid home care programs and nursing home services combined.  Since the population of people needing care is expected to increase at a faster rate than those able to provide it, the Family Caregiver’s role will be rendered both more crucial and more difficult in the near future.  The essential link they provide for this at-risk population must be strengthened by supporting the Family Caregiver with community resources and educational services they need.
For more information on becoming a sponsor for the conference, or to register for this event call Caring Connections at (845) 901-5744.

Keynote Speaker:  Kelly McMullen, Director of the Office for the Aging
Workshops will include:  Veterans Affairs Coordinator will speak about community homecare services for veterans.; Elder Law and preparing for Medicaid coverage; Medicaid application process; Transfer techniques and Caregiver Safety.

Spring is just around the corner and Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst is coming with it!  This popular semiannual event is held each year on the weekend before Mother’s Day and is located in the beautiful Hudson Valley, which National Geographic, Fodor’s and Time Magazine have all recently named one of the “Top Places to Visit” in the world.

Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst, May 1, 2, 3, 2015 showcases over 275 modern American makers, artists, designers and craftspeople from across the country and is a celebration of all things handmade.  These exceptional Indie artists infuse each of their pieces wit a distinctive creative vision.  Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst offers a full day art and shopping experience for the entire family.  Meet these talented emerging and seasoned makers who will be selling their exciting contemporary creations at Westchester County’s most beloved arts event and favorite out-of-the box shopping experience.  Truly a destination event not to miss, along the coast of the inspiringly beautiful Hudson River.

The show includes one-of-a-kind and limited edition creations in every material imaginable.  Find earrings made of sterling silver and python, and handbags made from antique books; scarves made of bamboo; pears made of bronze; necklaces made of meteorites, pens made of real flowers; and bowls made of granite, alongside contemporary craft pottery, wood furniture, and woven fashions, bronze sculpture, blown lass objects and more.  Visitors should also plan to visit the gourmet food and specialties sections to fully experience handcrafted delights.

Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst will have many special creative activities and interactive experiences.  Visitors may make their own Shibumi silk scarves with Patricia Disantis; dance to live music by the Lindsey Webster Band, watch and participate in craft demonstrations by potter Scott Martin and wood turner Don art; try your and at over a hundred musical instruments in our interactive musical experience; eat in the expanded food court (now including delicious vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options); wander around the Sculpture garden; taste and bring home yummy sweet or savory gourmet specialty foods; and entertain the kids with a variety of children’s activities including face painting, story telling, balloon animals, stilt walkers and more!

For more than 30 years hundreds and thousands of people have enjoyed this semiannual cultural phenomenon that has become one of the most beloved arts festivals in the United States.  Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst has raised almost four million dollars for the National Trust for Historic Preservations, and had helped sustain the careers of thousands of artists from across the country.

Check out what all the fuss is about on May 1, 2, 3, 2015.  A weekend pass is $12, seniors (62+) are $11; children 6 - 16 are $4 and children under 6 are free.  For more information, discount coupons, group rates and travel directions visit www.artrider.com or call 845-331-7900.  Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst is a rain or shine event.  Pets are allowed on the Lyndhurst property but not inside the festival site.

Lyndhurst, the Gothic Revival mansion and its picturesque 67-acre estate are an outstanding example of the 19th century landscape design including sweeping lawns accented with shrubs and specimen trees (some that are found only on this property) as well as the thriving rose garden and the nation’s finest steel-framed green-house conservatory.  Lyndhurst is also a party of Westchester’s RiverWalk, which spans 14 municipalities and is part of the Hudson River Valley Greenway.  Tours of the magnificent Lyndhurst mansion are available at an additional cost.

Artrider Productions Inc. has produced arts events since 1982 and has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to the craft and arts communities, raising thousands of dollars for CERF+ (Craft Emergency Relief Fund + Artists’ Emergency Resources) and almost $4 million for the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  In additional to Crafts at Lyndhurst, Artrider produces CraftWestport for the Westport Young Woman’s League, Crafts at Purchase for the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College, the Rhinebeck Arts Festival for the Dutchess County Agricultural Society and CraftMorristown.

Executive Director Job Description and Application Process 

The board of the Pine Hill Community Center is searching for an executive director. The executive director is responsible for all activities related to the operation of the Pine Hill Community Center from program development to building operations, from fundraising to budget management. The Center is run by an active Board of Directors and the executive director reports to the Board.

This is an exciting time in our 15-year history. We want to find someone who can build on our successes and help us advance the Center’s role as a unique Central Catskills venue for arts, services to young and old, families and individuals and, most important, as a resource for creating community. A description of the job and qualifications needed are listed below. Interested applicants should email a cover letter and resume to our Board Chair, Jim Nevin (jnevin@mindspring.com) by April 10th.

Please look here: https://vimeo.com/70323360 for a description of our history, philosophy and programs and use your cover letter to say what interests you and what experiences you bring to the Center. The Board will review all applications and interview selected candidates in April. We hope to make a choice in May with a start date in July.

This is the only salaried position at the Center and right now, it is part time (approximately 24 hours/week).  Candidates must be able to commit to regular hours that fit with the Center’s peak periods of activity. This will include part of one weekend day and occasional evenings when there are major events at the Center.

We’ve had two executive directors since we started. They would say that this is not only a job. It is a labor of love for community as well. We are looking for someone who has the excitement, enthusiasm and passion for community and is welcoming to everyone interested in the Center’s activities or interested in offering a program at the Center.

This is a job that requires an outgoing personality with strong people and project management skills. While the Center sponsors and runs a few ongoing programs, our main purpose is to support community members who want to create cultural and service-related activities for adults, children and families in the Central Catskills. The executive director is also responsible for overseeing the maintenance and operations of the building, hiring program presenters, and working closely with other contractors, including a bookkeeper, on budget and financial management.
You need to be comfortable writing and using basic social media tools and learning new ones as they develop. Right now, the job involves postings, updates and photos on our Web and Facebook sites and through regular emails to members.

The Center relies on contributions of time and money from individuals and donors. You must like and be able to fundraise as well as create and support a network of volunteers to help with the Center’s programs and operations. In addition, we look for grant money from foundations and other entities. The Board helps with applications, but we expect the executive director to identify opportunities, help with the writing of proposals and be able to track grants, interested donors and volunteers for programs.

So, are you organized and still like to think out of the box? Are you energetic and not afraid of working with a vision? Do you enjoy being networked with all kinds of people in the Central Catskills? Do you have a passion about the arts, science, building, or books or…? Do you have experience helping others turn their ideas into projects and performances? If you say yes to at least 2 of these questions and find the job of interest, please send us a cover letter and your resume. We look forward to hearing from you!

Emergency Preparedness Plan - Are you Ready? 

What would I do?

That’s an important question to ask, especially when you’re thinking about safety in the event of an emergency.

Having a preparedness plan before an emergency happens is essential to your safety. Because Make sure you’re ready by taking our Red Cross Preparedness Quiz at http://www.redcross.org/lp/preparedness-quiz

It’s just five questions, and you may learn something new that could help you and your loved ones stay safe in the event of a disaster.

Knowledge is the first step in readying yourself and your family in case of emergency. From having a packed emergency kit to picking your family meeting place, preparedness is essential.

Take the quiz now (http://www.redcross.org/lp/preparedness-quiz), then share it with your family and friends afterwards so that they’ll be prepared.

Stay safe,
Lauri Rhinehart
VP, Humanitarian Services

Severe Weather Preparedness In Your Car - Be Informed, Make A Plan, Build A Kit, Be Involved  

Preparedness Tips and Helpful Links:
- Alternative Route to the Rescue
Your everyday commute may be interrupted by unexpected events preventing you from making it on time to your destination.
This is just one event that raised the question, “what do I need if I have to unexpectedly shelter-in-place (http://www.ready.gov/shelter)?”
 
Maybe it’s not weather that will affect your commute, but a traffic accident that might cause some delay in your day. The best plan is to save time by planning ahead:
- Download and Explore Ready.gov’s Commuter Emergency Plan (http://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/90370); 
· Prepare a preparedness kit for your car;
· Establish a communication plan (http://www.ready.gov/make-a-plan) to contact loves ones;
· Download your local transit app; or
· Have cash and coins handy for transit fare boxes or to purchase goods.

Remember the time to plan is now, not later! Visit http://www.ready.gov/ for a list of ways to be prepared for natural disasters.

- Winter Survival Kit for Your Car
Equip your car with these items:
- blankets
- first aid kit
- a can and waterproof matches (to melt snow for water)
- windshield scraper
booster cables
- road maps
- mobile phone
- compass
- tool kit
- paper towels
- bag of sand or cat litter(to pour on ice or snow for added traction)
- tow rope
- tire chains (in areas with heavy snow)
- collapsible shovel
- container of water and high-calorie canned or dried foods
and a can opener
- flashlight and extra batteries
- canned compressed
- air with sealant (for emergency tire repair)
- brightly colored cloth

One Last Cool Tip . . .
Taking preventive action is your best defense against having to deal with extreme cold-weather conditions. By preparing your home and car in advance for winter emergencies, and by observing safety precautions during times of extremely cold weather, you can reduce the risk of weather-related health problems.

Preparedness Checklists For Storms & Hurricanes

A hurricane is on its way. What do I do?

See below for preparedness checklists and resources in the area:

FROM NYS DIVISION OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND EMERGENCY SERVIES:

Tips and Reminders:
http://www.dhses.ny.gov/oem/safety-info/publicsafety/winter.cfm

FROM AMERICAN RED CROSS:

Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS).

Check your disaster supplies. Replace or restock as needed.

Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture).

Close your windows, doors and hurricane shutters. If you do not have hurricane shutters, close and board up all windows and doors with plywood.

Turn your refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting. Keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last longer if the power goes out.

Turn off propane tank.

Unplug small appliances.

Fill your car’s gas tank.

Create an evacuation plan with members of your household. Planning and practicing your evacuation plan minimizes confusion and fear during the event.

Find out about your community’s hurricane response plan. Plan routes to local shelters, register family members with special medical needs and make plans for your pets to be cared for.

Obey evacuation orders. Avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges.

FROM CENTRAL HUDSON:

www.centralhudson.com/hurricanesandy

Pay close attention to weather advisories and storm warnings.

Keep a flashlight and fresh batteries handy.

Refuel vehicles and ensure they are in good working condition.

Have a phone that does not require an electric outlet to operate. Charge cell phones or have a car cell phone charger.

Stock water and packaged or canned foods that do not require refrigeration or cooking. Be sure to have a non-electric can opener.

Have a battery powered radio to keep informed of restoration efforts.

Ensure adequate supplies of medications, cash & other necessities.

Have a plan to check on vulnerable neighbors and family members.

You can access a mobile version of Central Hudson’s website with your web-enabled cell  phone or mobile device at mobile.CentralHudson.com.

Recent updates to our apps were made earlier this month and users need to download these updates at CentralHudson.com/mobileapp for complete access.

Also...

» Stay at least 30 feet away from downed power lines, and lines that may be entangled and hidden in fallen trees. Assume a downed line is live.
» Avoid using candles for illumination.
» Never use outdoor gas or charcoal grills indoors, as they pose a _re hazard and, over time, can give o_ deadly carbon monoxide gas. Use these appliances outdoors only, with proper ventilation. Operate motor vehicles outdoors only, and never in the garage.
CentralHudson.com/mobileapp

Near Power Lines:

If you see a downed power line, move away from it and anything touching it. The ground around power lines may be energized. Call Central Hudson immediately and we'll take care of the problem.

Do not attempt to move a downed power line or anything else in contact with it by using an object such as a broom or stick. Even non-conductive materials like wood or cloth, can conduct electricity if even slightly wet.

You cannot tell whether or not a power line is energized just by looking at it. You should assume that all downed power lines are live.

The proper way to move away from the power line is to shuffle away with small steps, keeping your feet together and on the ground at all times. This will minimize the potential for a strong electric shock.

If you see someone who is in direct or indirect contact with the downed line, do not touch the person. Call 911 for help.

Be careful not to touch or step in water near where a downed power line is located.
Do not drive over downed power lines.

If your car comes in contact with a downed power line while you are inside, stay in the car. Honk your horn to summon help, but direct others to stay away from your car. Stay inside and wait for rescue crews. Do not try to help someone else from the car while you are standing on the ground. If you do, you will become a path for electricity. In the event of a fire, jump clear from the car without touching the car and the ground at the same time; then shuffle away, keeping both feet on the ground at the same time, and taking care not to contact any wires or touch any object near the site of the accident.

GENERATORS:

Back-up generators require proper, professional installation. Never plug a generator into  any electric outlet in your home. A wrong connection could feed electricity back through the lines and endanger the lives of our repair crews. Check local ordinances to see if you  need a special permit and inspection.

Follow these safety tips when using a portable home generator:
• Read all manufacturer’s instructions.
• Follow instructions on properly “grounding” the generator.
• Don’t exceed the manufacturer’s rating for total electric load.
• Generators produce carbon monoxide, so your generator
should never be operated in an enclosed building. Locate it outdoors in a dry area.
• Turn the generator off to refuel,  and store fuel in a properly designed container.
• Use only UL-listed, three-prong extension cords.
• Keep cords out of the way, and don’t run them under rugs or carpets.

PREPAREDNESS FOR LIVESTOCK & PETS:

If you are a horse farm owner or you own other livestock or pets, please print out and save this article. It contains important information you may need in case of a power outage as a result of the potential serious hurricane approaching our area..

The National Weather Service is tracking the possibility of a potentially dangerous and slow-moving storm affecting the mid-Atlantic region Sunday, October 28 through Tuesday, October 30. “Hurricane Sandy” is predicted to bring strong, damaging, sustained winds of 70+mph, extremely heavy rainfall, major stream and river flooding, and major coastal flooding which will be intensified by the full moon on October 29. Under these conditions, extended power outages and the problems associated with them are expected. NOW is the time to make emergency preparations for you, family, friends, and clients, as well as pets and other animals. The following are also useful planning and preparedness websites:

- American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA): Information on Emergency Preparedness -http://www.avma.org/disaster/default.asp

- American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP): Emergency and Disaster Preparedness -http://www.aaep.org/emergency_prep.htm

- Red Cross: Disaster Preparedness for Pets -http://www.redcross.org/services/disaster/beprepared/animalsafety.html

If the state is severely impacted by the storm, the New York Department of Agriculture & Markets will be among the state agencies responding from the State Emergency Operations Center. Pertinent information will be distributed as it becomes available. Until then, stay tuned to the National Weather Service’s updates and follow recommended safety precautions.

Extensive resources are available regarding livestock and pets at CCE NY EDEN’s website-  http://eden.cce.cornell.edu/family/Pages/AnimalsinEmergencies.aspx

Owners of pets and livestock should implement emergency plans and bring pets with them if asked to evacuate. Pet owners should have a portable pet carrier for each animal and identification for each animal. Bring copies of the pet's licenses, leashes, water and food bowls, pet foods, bottled water, special medications and instructions for their administration, any special needs for your pet, blankets, handy wipes, paper towels and litter or bedding. Please visit the following websites to find pet friendly motel or contact major hotel chains for their policies regarding pets.

-- Fill your bathtub up with water as an extra supply of water to flush toilets

-- In your garage or even outside the house, fill a couple of large plastic tote boxes up with water from your garden hose (or from the storm's rainwater), as an extra supply of water to flush toilets.

-- If you use online banking to pay your bills, set up your bill payments online before the storm, as you might not have power for a while.
