Volunteer Drivers Needed To Transport Cancer Patients to Treatment
The American Cancer Society needs individuals who can volunteer one hour at least once a month to drive a cancer patient to a local cancer center in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan and Orange County. Locally, the greatest need is for drivers who can pick up patients at their home and take them to treatment — even one time once a month would be tremendously helpful, according to Patrice Lestrange Mack, Communications Director for the American Cancer Society. All drivers must have: A current, valid driver’s license, A good driving record, Access to a safe and reliable vehicle, Regular desktop, laptop, or tablet computer access, & Proof of car insurance.

Kingston Design Connection hosts a Design Showhouse
Herzog’s has teamed up with Maryline Damour. Maryline is the principal designer at Damour Drake. For several years she has spearheaded an independent project called Kingston Design Connection (kingstondesignconnection.com). This project was developed to connect Hudson Valley designers to each other and potential clients. Each year in the fall. Herzog’s Home Center has been supporting the project since its inception 3 years ago.
This year’s showhouse is an enormous Hudson River Gothic house located downtown with a magnificent river view (it’s amazing!). The showhouse will be open with “controlled” tours beginning November 27 through December 13th.
Each year a non for profit organization receives donations from the ticket sales. The 2020 recipient is Hudson Valley Senior Residence on Washington Ave.
