NOT-FOR-PROFITS WANTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE

 5th ANNUAL NEWBURGH VOLUNTEER FAIR ON MAY 2nd

 

Newburgh Nonprofit 2015(Newburgh, NY …February 25, 2015) Not-for profits in the greater Newburgh area are encouraged to participate in the 5th Annual Newburgh Volunteer Fair. This event is to be held at Washington’s Headquarters on Saturday, May 2nd, from 11:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Safe Harbors of the Hudson and the Newburgh Free Library are in partnership with the historic site coordinating this program.

 

The day provides not-for-profit organizations an opportunity to raise awareness of the great and important services they provide, as well as network and provide support to each other.   These organizations rely upon volunteers to assist in their endeavors. Representatives of these organizations will staff a table to provide information and be available to recruit new volunteers who wish to join their efforts. 

 

All are invited to attend the Fair, visit the tables, and ask about the work these organizations are engaged in first-hand. There also will be tours of the Hasbrouck House, used by General and Mrs. Washington, during the Revolutionary War. Support from our sponsors has made admission to the Hasbrouck House and the Museum free on this day, encouraging visitors to learn just how important a role Newburgh played during the War of Independence.

 

Please take advantage of this opportunity to promote the work you are doing, recruit new volunteers, and network with other community organizations trying to make a difference in Newburgh.

Help us save the Tower of Victory! The Palisades Parks Conservancy has launched a capital campaign to raise funds for the restoration of the Tower of Victory at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site in Newburgh, NY. The Tower of Victory is truly one of the treasures of the Hudson Valley.  For 125 years, it has stood as the nation’s only monument to the lasting peace that came after the end of the Revolutionary War. Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of the President and then Secretary of War, commissioned John Hemingway Duncan, one of the nation’s most renowned architects at that time, to design the massive stone arched structure that hosts bronzes sculpted by William Rudolf O’Donovan, the pre-eminent monumental sculptor of the day. It stands on the property where General Washington created the “Badge of Military Merit” now called the Purple Heart medal.

 

Mail your donation to: Palisades Parks Conservancy, P.O. Box 427, 3006 Seven Lakes Drive, Bear Mountain, NY 10911. Or donate online: www.palisadesparksconservancy.org/donate. Remember to put the Tower of Victory in the subject line so we know you want to be a part of the campaign!
