Thank you to everyone who prepared the food, helped in any way and came to the Community Hall for dinners to support the West Kill/Lexington Community Improvement Association’s annual Chicken BBQ on June 8 in West Kill.  The weather was beautiful, the food delicious and it was a great success.

As always, the Lexington Farmers Market was the place to be on June 8.  There was music and fresh veggies, eggs, cheeses, meats, baked goods and so much more.  Next market will be June 22, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. under the pavilion at the Lexington Municipal Building, 3542 Route 42.

On your way through West Kill, have you noticed how beautiful the West Kill United Methodist Church looks with its new siding?  Many thanks to Steve Rossignol Builders for the excellent work.  Work was completed with care and expertise.  If you would like to give Steve a call, his number is 518-929-4973.  

Happy birthday to Patty Minew on Friday, June 14.

Monday, June 17 is Fran Melodia’s birthday.

Also celebrating birthdays on June 17 are Moriah Gallagher and Elizabeth Haines.

Tuesday, June 18 is Alden “Skeet” Constable’s birthday.
