Beloved Ulster Organization Celebrates a Half Century of Giving
50 years is a long time. The world was a lot different back in 1972. There were no cell phones, no streaming or computers, and our television remote controls seemed like the most amazing technology ever. But one thing has not changed. And that’s People’s Place in Kingston and their commitment to the community. They’ve been giving for 50 years. That’s something to be thankful for and to celebrate.
There will indeed be a celebration for the big anniversary, and you can be part of it. The People’s Place Golden Jubilee is coming up on Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Mount Academy on Broadway in Esopus from 2PM - 5PM. It’s going to be a great day to celebrate and help out one of the area’s most respected and well-loved organizations. For tickets or to make a donation, visit the People’s Place website.
