Good Thursday friends! Today at La Voz with Mariel Fiori is entertainment and environment day.

In his column, Libros para la gente, SUNY New Paltz literature professor Adolfo Béjar Lara recommended the poetry of award-winning Mexican poet Elisa Díaz Castelo and her book Principia.

I gace you some ideas for the weekend. Maru González from RUPCO invited us to the Embrace, Support and Gather the Community event, next June 1 in Newburgh, to raise funds for this non-profit organization dedicated to creating homes, supporting people and improving communities through through a broad spectrum of community development solutions, including housing, historic preservation, and neighborhood revitalization in the Hudson Valley. There are opportunities for first-time homebuyers in Kingston, and more, on their website.

In addition, Julie Noble, sustainability coordinator for the city of Kingston, talked about how the free food scrap collection program, Kingston Organics, will work.
