Volunteer on Festival Day!

The 2014 Fall Festival is on September 20th, 12-4pm. All the festival activities are brought to you by a host of volunteers and DEC staff who have been working diligently all through the year planning this day. This year more than ever many volunteers will be needed. And it's fun!

If you would like to help please let us know. Send an e-mail to janmessina@verizon.net or Joanne Macklin at friendsfiverivers@outlook.com or call Five Rivers at 518-475-0295 to let us know how long you can help, how we can reach you to confirm the schedule, and where you would like to help if you have a preference.

Donations Needed!

We welcome your donations for the bake sale and plant sale.

  • Bake Sale Donations: If you donate baked goods, please keep in mind that items that can be eaten while walking are most popular. People will be at the Center from 9:00 - 5:00 on Friday and from 9:00 on Saturday morning to receive your item(s). If an item you make has nuts, please label it as such. If you make individual items, such as cookies or brownies, we eventually need to have them wrapped and safe from little fingers. For small cookies, we pack four to a bag; medium, two to a bag; large ones can be packaged individually. We'll have people there Saturday morning to wrap them if you'd prefer to bring them unwrapped. We sell out, so if you have any other friends who like to bake, please invite them to join in too.
  • Plant Sale Donations: We would greatly appreciate any contributions of hardy perennials, house plants, bare root iris, daylilies, small shrubs, etc that you could make from your gardens. Email Gina Smith at adkdreamr@yahoo.com for details.
