How often do you have the opportunity to wish an historical figure “Happy Birthday?” You will have the chance to during our annual George Washington Birthday Celebration at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site, in Newburgh. The celebration will be held February 14th, 15th, and 16th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm each day, with our George Washington re-enactor, kicking off each day by cutting into his own birthday cake.

There also will be music, military demonstrations, crafts, historical presentations, with something for every family member. Admission for all three days will be free, though donations are requested. We hope you can join us to sing “Happy Birthday” to The General, eat a piece of his birthday cake and enjoy what the day has to offer.

Sponsorship for this program is provided by the Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands, Palisades Interstate Park Commission and the Palisades Parks Conservancy. Call 845-562-1195 for further details.

Keep your favorite kitty healthy and happy with this LOW COST spay/neuter clinic for cats brought to you by the Humane Society of Port Jervis/Deerpark and T.A.R.A (The Animal Rights Alliance).  The clinic cost of $70 per female or male cat includes spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccination, ear cleaning and nail trimming.  Distemper vaccine, flea treatment and microchipping are also available at an additional reasonable cost. Spaying and neutering helps fight pet overpopulation and helps pets live longer, healthier, happier lives.  Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays.  The good news is that responsible pet owners can make a difference.  By having your dog or cat sterilized, you will do your part to prevent the birth of unwanted puppies and kittens and to help reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct.  Risks of certain types of cancer and disease can also be reduced by spaying and neutering your pet. Space for the February 12th clinic is limited so please make sure you reserve your spot early!  Drop-off and registration is between 7:00 and 8:00 AM at the Humane Society of Port Jervis/Deerpark shelter at 202 Route 209, Port Jervis, NY.  Pick-up is between 5:00 and 6:00 PM.  Call today to make an appointment at (845) 856-3677.  Payment by cash, check or credit card is requested in advance in order to hold your appointment.

Although this clinic is for cats only, T.A.R.A.’s stationary clinic in Middletown, NY spays and neuters dogs for a reduced fee.  For more information or to make an appointment for your dog call: 845-343-1000 or 845-754-7100.
