Happening This Weekend - 11/9/2018

It's November's Second Saturday and it's time to see what new work Beacon's local art galleries have in store. Take a peek now at our Art Gallery Guide to decide what you want to see. Have you checked out Beacon's Free Bus, the Beacon Loop, yet? It's really easy! It can get you around town lickity-split! Hail it from literally anywhere on Main Street, and it will scoop you up and put you down where you want.

PS: An update to yesterday's protest in Beacon: about 200 reportedly participated in the local event, which was one of 900 protests across the country regarding the resignation of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and his temporary replacement.

Alright... Let's see what you're doing this weekend! First of all, there's that can't-miss bake sale for a cause, For Goodness Bake, which is still accepting baked goods! See here for details...
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.

The For Goodness Bake Bake Sale
Saturday, November 10, 2018
Time: 10 am to 4 pm
Location: 145 Main St., Beacon, NY
(aka Beacon Healing Massage & Create Space)
The For Goodness Bake event is a Beacon staple, and has become an annual event throughout the years. Started by Kristen Pratt and Tara Tornello, the community-sourced bake sale raises money for one particular cause that has demonstrated an urgent need in the community. Say Kristen and Tara for this year: “We wanted to raise funds to help keep a beloved Beacon family together. For four years, this local family (who must remain anonymous) has helped to nurture a little boy who needed a home. Now his future and their family are in jeopardy as they face a difficult fight for his rights.”

Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency

Susan Pagones and Vince Lemma were main sponsors of the Beacon Historical Society's "Beacons of History" fundraiser last night. We were there too, and were so fortunate and honored to attend with Susan and Vince, and to hear so many stories from Susan herself about Beacon's history. Supporting the community has always been a top priority of Antalek & Moore. Pictured here are the honorees, Ronnie Beth Sauers and B.P.O.E. Lodge #1493.
Tis the season for holiday pop-up shops and parties! Looking for a space for your special event? There is still time to book with A Little Beacon Space.
