Hey PPR Listeners! I’m Rebecca, born and raised in Dover Plains, and I’m here to expand your calendars to include events in your sister community!
This weekend is the J.H. Ketcham Hose Company’s annual Carnival! The Carnival has great food, fun rides, and popular Bingo tent! Come down to Dover Elementary School on Rt. 22 this weekend!
Friday July 16th is Wristband night! Enjoy unlimited rides when you purchase a wristband!
My favorite parts of the Carnival take place on Saturday! Come down for a parade and fireworks!
And don’t forget, starting at 5pm, the 3rd Annual Fireworks Fest will bring in local bands! Take One Car, City Streets County Roads, Volcano Rabbit, and Visitations will be playing!
So please head to Dover this weekend for some great local fun!
The week after the Carnival in Dover is a little more relaxed, with the day camp going to Monster Mini Golf on Monday, and Halloween Day on Friday.
The Library will be hosting several fun events!
On Monday the 21st, there will be a Fizz, Boom, and Movie event! There is no signup required and participants will watch the movie Flubber, and then make some ooey gooey Flubber for themselves!
If you’d like to learn chess practice your skills, sign up for the library club Chess Nutz, and start playing Tuesday July 22nd at 6pm!
On Friday at 7pm, the Poughkeepsie Paranormal Investigators will be giving a presentation and taking participants on a ghost walk! Sign ups required!
Also, for teens to start getting business savvy, there will be an Introduction to Babysitting Certification Course on Saturday from 10:30am to 2:30pm!
There are more events available at the library and they can be found on the Library website www.doverplainslibrary.org. To register for activities call 845 832 6605.
It’s a hopping week in Dover so I encourage you all to come visit us!
