WappingersRises

WappingersRises #WAPPINGERSRISES- Is a Grassroots effort by village residents aimed at bringing us closer together as a community and to attract strong businesses, families, and individuals to the Village of Wappinger’s Falls.
(6)

In order to promote this effort- we are asking that everyone (residents, visitors, businesses, village: Police, Fire, Highway, Recreation, Historical, Business, Civics, …etc) please include the #WAPPINGERSRISES hashtag in your posts on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and any other social media. This will give the general public a single source to access information ( announcements, events, live music, food/drink specials, historical facts, volunteer opportunities…etc.) within the village almost real-time...we welcome anything positive that brings us together as a community. This WILL NOT be a forum for opinions or debate.

This was surely a fun, extended weekend. WappingersRises decided to watch the Village Holiday Parade this year (in the past, you saw us as Elsa/Frozen, The Greatest Show, and we hosted a mini parade last year). Then, today, we took four kids to shop at Polar Pals. Only 2 weekends left to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity, where children can shop on any budget, as low as $0.30...YES, THIRTY CENTS. Pictures from today's fun will be posted next Saturday to remind you to take advantage of this joyful experience. Thanks to the The Wappinger Falls Rotary for bringing this to our community.

Incredible Organization and what creativity!

Kids, target age 5-12 years/(elementary school), with preschool age also being appropriate, can show up with as little as $0.50, and can leave with a gift wrapped item. It's a gift in itself to give a child an opportunity to purchase a complete surprise for someone they love. Tis' the Season
*Items are priced up to $10.00.

Main Street Store Fronts, Wappingers Falls, Dutchess County, NY 1907.

Today, the Nubel and Van Borstel Grocery Store building no longer stands and is now Eddie's Pizza. The George H. Angell Building still stands and is now Revival on Main Hair Salon. The next building (Goring Hall) partially collapsed and was razed in 2012. The horse drawn carriage in the foreground reads, "Wappingers Falls Cheap Store"

FRIENDS: I KNOW THE WORLD IS IN A VERY DELICATE POSITION/TIPPING POINT FOR CHANGE. HERE IS A VERY LOCAL AND IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FROM HOME TO IMPACT THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE AND MILLIONS OF OTHERS IN A HALF HOUR. RIGHT NOW. FROM HOME. Join me in taking action to STOP THE DANSKAMMER POWER PLANT, west shore of the Hudson River, town of Newburgh, NY from firing up to burn fracked gas in the very near future, 7 days a week. ON the River. 6 STEPS to ACTION: 1. Educate Yourself https://www.facebook.com/35205934682/posts/10159049460584683/ 2. Make a public comment http://documents.dps.ny.gov/…/MatterManage…/CaseMaster.aspx… 3. Ask your town board to write and send a resolution to the state to shut down the plant (check if your town is "onboard" in comment section below) 4. Join the coalition https://stoptheplant.org/ of more than 7 local and national environmental action groups to oppose the plant's proposal, 5. Become an Environmental Action Liaison for your community by calling or emailing [email protected] at 845-807-1270 6. SHARE THIS POST. PLEASE AND THANK YOU! This plant is 1 mile north of me on the west side of the Hudson. It sits directly on the shore. Whether or not you pass by it on your sail, enjoy the picturesque scenery from the walkway over the Hudson, or just enjoy breathing clean air and drinking clean water, the quality of your life will be affected by the burning of the gas. DANSKAMMER'S proposal to burn fracked gas 7 days a week would be devastating to ALL life within miles of the plant for generations to come, including the delicate marine and plant life ecosystem therein. I am revving up ALL MY FRIENDS to oppose the plant's request for a permit to reopen. PLEASE FOR THE LIFE OF MOTHER EARTH AND ALL HER CURRENT AND FUTURE INHABITANTS #savethepanet #thinkgloballyactlocally #environmentalaction #motherearth #stoptheplant
Breakfast on the Homestead porch this morning 😊
This was the view on Market Street on my way out of Wappinger Falls 0n Feb 25 literally running for my life. 39 people who lived there lost everything they owned. One tenant lost 2 cats. You can't get your hair cut there anymore. Mario's Sandwich Shop is no longer serving Wappinger Falls.n What happened after that was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. The community pulled together and were as kind and generous as anything I have seen in my life. They got us through the days of both horror of losing everything and lucky enough to be alive. Everyone from the mayor on down literally were life-savers. Then the story fell out of the news. The people who lost everything have in many ways be forgotten. In many ways they are still being treated with the same lack of human decency that allowed the landlord to hire incompetent help that not only took everything the tenants owned but risked their very lives.They took the dream of Mario's Sandwich Company and threw it out with the trash. It has been 6 months and the insurance company ignores the needs of people just trying to get some footing back of what the fire took from us. The Mayor doesn't answer emails asking if the owner is going to rebuild so the tenants can tell whomever who will listen that this man took everything from us and abandoned us. The local Journalist just stooped responding. I come to this site page every day see the pictures of Wappinger falls how wonderful downtown looks. Patsy's is open. It was literally right outside the back door. The Creamery looks wonderful now that it open. Underneath all that beauty and hope is a sad and tragic truth. An incompetent who was more interested in getting his equipment off the fire escape than calling the fire department risked our lives, and took everything we owned. I am happy to see the downtown looks as vibrant as anything can these days. The sad truth though is that the lack of concern for the safety and lives that caused that fire, is the same treatment that the victims are getting now. It is a disgrace. This is not how lives and dreams should be treated in Wappinger Falls.
Brother and Sister.... They seem bonded and we would love to place them im a loving home together. Please go to www.strayhelp.org to submit an application 😸
Marten is a purr machine! He is super sweet and playful with his entire foster family: cats, small dog and people. He’s very curious, and wants to be involved in most everything that happens in the house. This active guy, and his brothers, need lots of enrichment and interaction. They are very very people friendly as they were rescued from the city streets when they were just 5 weeks old. When they came in they were sickly and needed lots of hands on care – this got them quickly used to being handled, cuddled and loved. Marten, Skunk, Possum are all males, brothers, playful and loving to each other and anyone they come in contact with. A very special litter of kittens. www.strayhelp.org [email protected]
If anyone is interested in adopting a Grandparent to write to, send care packages, or window visit please call the facility and contact the Administrator at 845-831-1909 ext 307 We will also be doing a friends and family parade Friday April 24th at 2pm anyone who is free to drive by and spread some smiles to our residents it's greatly appreciated. We will begin line up at 1:30 on Old Castle Point Rd and start at 2pm
For all of those on the front lines and those who are the last line of defense.
We're at Osborne Hill Rd ready and waiting to share some smiles and waves with the musical caravan #wappingersrises #101.5WPDH #hotdogsnmore
I have read some stories of the tragic fire. I undrstand that many families have lost thier homes and everything in them. Coincidentally, I recently purchased new Living room furniture. I was hoping to donate my 3 piece sectional to a charity group of some sort but NYS law will not allow me to do this because one of the pieces has a sleeper in it. I'm not going to lie; the longest piece that has the two recliners and a fold down table shows wear but no tear. the other two pieces, including the sleeper, are in good condition. I was going to put it on Facebook marketplace. If any of these families can use this I would be willing to give it away. Someone would have to come to Hyde Park to pick it up. Private Message me if this can be arranged. i will not put it on Marketplace until Tuesday. Thoughts and Prayers for all and thank you to all first responders for doing what you do.
