E-town Day planning under way, including benefit breakfast June 12

ELIZABETHTOWN-Summertime in the Adirondacks will be the theme of the annual E-town Day celebration.

"The fire company is kinda plugging everything together right now," Harvey Putnam, of the Elizabethtown Volunteer Fire Department, said. "We are getting the entertainment set up, and we have come up with the theme for the event."

E-town Day will take place on Saturday, July 16, with plenty of events and activities capped off with the annual fireworks display.

"Summertime in the Adirondacks," will not only be the theme for the day, but also for the annual parade, which will step off at 3 p.m.

Putnam said that those interested in participating in the parade are asked to call Steve Duso Sr. by calling 873-9244.

Putnam said that there will be local entertainment throughout the event, along with the food and refreshment stands.

"A lot of what is being done this year is what we have done in the past," Putnam said. "There will be kids games, antique cars and more. Last year was a great year, and we were able to offer a lot to the community."

Putnam said that the fire department will also hold its annual food sales and raffles.

"We get great community support, and there are people that come from all over the region," Putnam said. "We will be sending our donation letters out soon, and it is never too early to start thinking about the event."

In preparation for E-town day, the fire department will be holding its fireman's breakfast on Sunday, June 12, from 7 a.m. until noon at the fire department. It will be a donation cost with all proceeds benefiting E-town Days.

For more information on the breakfast or E-town Days, contact Putnam at 873-2291.
