FIVE MILE POINT SPEEDWAY RACE FANS DONATE OVER THREE BARRELS OF FOOD ITEMS FOR CHOW IN RECNET PRACTICE DAYS.

 

KIRKWOOD, NYJust like in years past Five Mile Point Speedway race fans showed their generosity at the recent practice days as over three barrels of canned good and non-perishable items were collected for CHOW. The donations will be presented to CHOW this week. This Saturday the 59th season of racing gets underway with the annual running of the Southern Tier Open 40 for Modifieds. Race time is 5 p.m.

 

The practice days that were held provided a great opportunity for the race teams to shake down their 2009 racing equipment. The test sessions always give teams the chance to try new race setups in an attempt to find that elusive perfect combination.

 

Two additional practice dates have been set at the speedway and those two have been established as CHOW pantry donation opportunities. Saturday, April 25th and Saturday, May 16th will also allow teams to get additional practice as they prepare for the full course of the 2009 season.

 

The 2009 race season gets the green flag this Saturday, April 18th with the running of the Southern Tier Open. Racing gets underway at 5 p.m. For additional information please log on to the official Five Mile Point Speedway website at www.fivemilepointspeedway.net or phone the speedway offices at (607) 775-5555. Make it a point to get to the Point in 2009!

Dear Five Mile Point Race Fans,

 

I would like to thank you and those who participated in the recent food drive at the 5 Mile Point Race track. Your food donation collected in four barrels came to nearly 700 pounds of food that will go out to our 28 food pantries in Broome County. As you know, CHOW depends on the generosity of the residents of Broome County to keep our warehouse stocked and our pantries full. With out the generous support of groups like yours we would not be able to continue to feed the hungry in our area. With the economy not doing well we are in need of increasing amounts of donated food to keep up with the number of people using our pantries. Broome County residents have always come through for us when we needed more food and your food drive added to the needed donations coming into our warehouse.

 

Thank you again for helping CHOW to stop hunger in Broome County.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Deacon Edward Blaine
