ALLENTOWN VILLAGE INITIATIVE FUNDRAISER
Lastly, we would like to spread the word about the Allentown Village Initiative's (AVI) upcoming fundraising event Saturday, June 21st from 5-8. They are hosting a wonderful wine, cheese and chocolate 'Soiree' at Tree Haven, the beautiful Italianate Victorian home at 123 South Main Street. There will also be an art exhibit and house tour (and craft beer station for those of you who prefer beer over wine). Tickets are $50 per person and must be purchased in advance.

It is for a good cause; the AVI is a non-profit, volunteer driven group who are working hard to revitalize our downtown. They have successfully led the clean up effort of the area's oldest cemetery, which dates back to the early 1700s, and are also working hard to secure grants for the revitalization of Main Street. For more information on the AVI, or to reserve your ticket for the event, contact Martha Ploshay at: ploshay@juno.com, or call her at: (609) 529-4524 For more information, you can visit the AVI website.


Here is nice recent article about AVI and their accomplishments.

Have a wonderful June!
