HYMERS FARM BENEFIT EVENT
Andes Hotel Offers Fun for all, Great Live Music, Fri Jan 30
Friday, January 30, The Farm Catskills non-profit organization will host the Hymers Farm Benefit Event at The Andes Hotel. The evening will feature acoustic performances, with genres ranging from old-time to contemporary, from stand-out local/regional performers Becca Frame & Brian Shafer, Stoddard Hollow String Band, Joel Murray, and Altered Walter. The event will begin at 7pm, and is scheduled to conclude at 10pm. All monetary donations will be accepted, and all ages/families will be welcome.
On December 11, 2014, the Hymers family dairy farm on Elk Creek Road, Delhi, suffered a tragic loss when their barn, and everything in and around the barn (including a wealth of equipment and tools), was destroyed in a fire. Cows, and calves, perished in the blaze, as well. The barn was an essential part of the Hymers family’s working dairy operation. The Hymers’ farm was one of the few remaining dairy farms on Elk Creek Road. The January 30 benefit event, and related campaign, is an effort to help the Hymers family rebuild, and help replace what they have lost.
The Hymers Farm Benefit Event will include 50/50 raffles, a silent auction, and a variety of raffle prizes, as well. Sponsors of the event include High Country, Blue Bee, Stone and Sawyer, Jennifer Green, Tuna 3, Hudson Made, The Farmer’s Wife, Bagels and Cream, Thompson Photography Group, Spring Valley Sportsman, Diane Taylor, Haggerty Ace Hardware, Hanford Mills Museum, and Clean Green Music. The Andes Hotel’s full menu, and full bar, will be available throughout the evening. The event will take place in the Andes Hotel’s “Yellow Room” (an onsite banquet and entertainment facility), and all donations will be graciously accepted.
Those who cannot attend the 1/30 event but would like to help the Hymers family can donate online via YouCaring.com (“Hymers Farm Fundraiser,” http://www.youcaring.com/help-a-neighbor/hymers-farm-fundraiser/277379), and/or can mail a check to the following address: The Hymers Family, c/o Farm Catskills, 87 Sal Bren Road, Delhi, NY 13753.
