A pair of upcoming “Summer Casual Schedule” events have reservation deadlines this week. Act now to avoid disappointment!
• The deadline is this Thursday for reserving seats for the ValleyCats Baseball & Picnic at Bruno Stadium (scheduled for August 18).
This is one of our biggest family outings each summer. It begins with a picnic dinner in the covered pavilion on the stadium’s first-base side, followed by reserved seats for a New York-Penn League pro baseball game between the homestanding Tri-City ValleyCats and the visiting Aberdeen (MD) Ironbirds.
Tickets are just $25 each, and are going fast. The price covers the meal, the game, and a souvenir baseball cap. Parking is free on the Hudson Valley Community College campus that is home to the stadium. Terry Brewer is coordinating the event, but RSVPs should be made only via email to SRCrotary@gmail.com as quickly as possible.
• The deadline is this Saturday for the wine tasting and orchard-inspired dinner at Goold Orchards, scheduled for August 11. The price is a bargain at $20 per person, thanks to co-hosts Pat Bailey and Debbie Rodriguez who are making all the arrangements again this year.
When you RSVP to SRCrotary@gmail please be sure to (1) include the number of guests you will be bringing, and (2) indicate everyone’s entree choice. Here is the menu:
Stuffed Filet of Sole (broiled fish with a Fuji apple stuffing)
Harvest Chicken Breast (boneless breast of chicken, sauteed with cherries, sweet onions and apples, braised in an apple cider reduction
Wild rice and grilled seasonal vegetables
Harvest crumb-apple cranberry pie
Apple cider donuts
