The Habitat Skillet Toss Is Back at Greene’s Applefest
On September 29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Chenango County Habitat for Humanity will be at the Twenty-Sixth Annual Applefest. Habitat for Humanity helps provide affordable housing to families in Chenango County. A long time ago when I was in school I volunteered to help build a house for Habitat For Humanity, and it is still to this day one of the most memorable and fun things I have ever done! If you have a chance to get to the Greene Applefest this year, they will be stacked up in the Ball Flats again with the thrilling metal hurling Habitat Skillet Toss! These not so aerodynamic, slightly misshapen cooking devices will be thrown for incredible distances for a good cause! The Skillet Toss, is a fund raising activity to benefit Chenango County Habitat for Humanity’s house build in West Bainbridge on the corner of Routes 17 and 206. Habitat For Humanity hoping to attract some energetic people to help with the build. Can you volunteer a few days to give them a hand? Habitat will be at The Ball Flats all day from 9am-4pm. This event, usually limited to women only at other fairs and such, is now open to men and women, as well as your children! It’s only $1 per toss, however, I’ve heard that MUCH LARGER donations are gladly accepted.
