While Mother Nature provided an enjoyable dose of mild weather for the holidays, we are now reminded that it’s January and temperatures can plunge quickly.
Dangerously cold weather is in our immediate forecast and we are concerned about those who may be in need of shelter or lose heat. Arrangements have been made with Cohoes Community Center (22 Remsen Street) in cooperation with our police and fire departments to offer a warming station. I would once again like to thank the Community Center for their support. If you need assistance, please call 911 or go to your nearest Fire or Police Department.
I would also urge family and neighbors’ to be attentive to our seniors, particularly those living alone. A phone call or better yet a visit is always appreciated, but during extreme weather it is crucial. A cup of coffee with some conversation and everybody feels better.
Stay warm. Stay safe, and thank you for your concern.
