Pitcairn Patter: Our town has so much to offer

| Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

Pitcairn is a small town with a big heart.

Our town offers its youths the opportunity to play football, baseball, and softball; enjoy a movie for free; have fun at the summer recreation program; march in the Halloween parade and participate in the Harvest Festival; visit with Santa; hunt for Easter eggs and have lunch with the Easter Bunny; and attend a week of summer camp.

Thank you, Camp B and Camp G, Mohawk Football, Pitcairn Baseball/Softball Association and the Parks and Recreation Committee, for supporting our kids.

We have programs for those who need food and clothing, and service organizations that lend a hand when needed.

Thank you to the members of the Clothes Closet, Community Renaissance, Eastern Star, food pantry, Girl Scouts, Lions Club, Meals-on-Wheels, Neighborhood Watch, Rainbow Girls and Woman's Club.

Thank you to the historical society and Pitcairn High School Alumni for keeping our history alive.

Thank you to the members of our fire companies and the ambulance crews and to our elected officials.

Thank you to Propel School for believing in Pitcairn, to our clergy and, of course, to our businesses.

Thank you to everyone who plays a part in making our town a community.

Let's continue to support our community events, organizations, employees and volunteers in 2014.


The Pitcairn Rainbow Girls Assembly No. 90 is having a spaghetti-dinner fundraiser Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Park Building.

The meal will include spaghetti, meatballs, salad, bread, dessert and a beverage. The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and younger. Take-out will be available.

Any girl between ages 6 and 21 who joins the organization on Sunday will receive a free dinner.

Proceeds from the dinner benefit the Pitcairn Assembly's community projects.


Members of the Pitcairn Woman's Club are reminded that there are no meetings in January.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
