United Way of Sidney to Celebrate 60 Years
Sidney Flood Victims Will Benefit
From United Way Celebration Oct. 29

SIDNEY - 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the United Way of Sidney's service to the community. Sixty years of volunteers, dedicating their time and talent to organize campaigns to raise the necessary funds to support the organizations that serve the people of Sidney and surrounding areas.

Through the years the agencies and the volunteers have changed but the dedication and commitment of the people who work and live in the Sidney area has remained.

Presently there are 15 member agencies that rely on the hard work of the volunteers and the generous contributions of the people who live and work in Sidney.

On Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011 the United Way of Sidney will hold a dinner at Sacred Heart Parish Center to bring together as many as possible past and present board members, businesses and community leaders to thank, celebrate and kick off the 2012 campaign. The evening will include a social beginning at 6 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m. followed by a short program.

All monies raised will benefit our recent flood victims. Tickets are $25 and are available by contacting Carol Allen at Sidney Chamber/United Way Office, 24 River St., 561-2642 or from past and present board members including Dennis Porter, 563-2725; Bob Weitzman, 563-2378; Janet Wright, 5637728; JoAnn Passaniti, NBT Bank; Debra Philpott, SFCU; or Jeremy Matviak, Video Entertainment Plus.
