Blue Plate Bash for Columbia-Greene Humane Society
Jamie Larson reports from Chatham. It’s amazing to think that Saturday marked the 11th annual Columbia-Greene Humane Society Benefit hosted by the Blue Plate restaurant. Equally as amazing as the event, which raises thousands for the Humane Society each year through donations and a silent auction, was the gargantuan turnout. The event has become a can’t-miss philanthropic to-do for the area, packing the Blue Plate from wall to wall and down into the bar/lounge with everyone from our region who appreciates the work the organization has done saving an untold number of animals great and small. Pictured at left are performer and baker Trixie Starr, Humane Society Board Chair Charline Marchand and Chatham Village Mayor Tom Curran.
Blue Plate Manager Marcia Curran, Mary Gibson and Congressman Chris Gibson, Marchand, Blue Plate Manager Colleen Carpenter-Rice and Humane Society CEO Ron Perez.
The Blue Plate was packed with Humane Society supporters Saturday; Kristine Lindahl and massage therapist Brin Quell.
Blue Plate staff Gunnar Wordon, Sam Reilly, Amy Reilly and Jesse, Marcia and Lidia Curran; Duncan Calhoun and Russell Gibson, owners of the Barlow Hotel in Hudson.
The cold, wet weather in Chatham on Saturday only emphasized the warmth of spirit inside the Blue Plate.
