GSDCC Day of Golf
Location: Branton Woods in Hopewell Junction
Please join the Greater Southern Dutchess Chamber of Commerce for the 25th annual Day of Golf in honor of Mr. Norman Nussbickel. Sponsored by Wachovia and Philips, this event offers a corporate challenge, scramble, a marshmallow challenge, and a putting green contest.

Branton Woods was named the "#2 Best New Upscale Golf Course" in 2002 by Golf Digest from a competition of more than 250 entries. Branton Woods was built with every effort to preserve the natural wildlife and not disrupt the native environment. The result is a true championship golf course that is tailored to challenge golfers of all levels and that offers a traditional, classic design with sculptured bunkers and large rolling greens.

"Considerations in Funding Public Investments"
Time: 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: SUNY New Paltz - Lecture Center 102
Communities throughout the Hudson Valley region need funds for infrastructure. There are water and sewer lines to lay and plants to build or expand; there are agricultural lands to protect and recreational resources to improve; and the need for starter and senior housing is acute.

Mid-Hudson Pattern for Progress is sponsoring an evening workshop to discuss the funding options available to local communities for infrastructure investments:

The public is invited. The workshop is free of charge.

Guest presenters include John Bartow, Director of the Division of Local Governments, NYS Department of State, who will give an overview of the funding methods available to municipalities and counties and discuss the factors to consider when selecting a given funding method; and John Nolon, Director of the Land Use Law Center, Pace University School of Law, who will explore problem solving approaches communities can employ to meet local and regional growth and preservation needs.
