Latino Outreach Event Set For October 6

Latino Outreach Event

Come Gather with us!


The City of Poughkeepsie and the Poughkeepsie City School District invite you to a joint gathering for our Latino community. All are welcome. Free refreshments will be served. Free kids' activities!

The event will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, at Changepoint, 260 Mill St. in  Poughkeepsie. A COVID Vaccine Clinic will be on-site at the event starting two hours earlier at 3 p.m. and running until the end of the event. No appointment is needed. 

Mayor Rolison, City School District Superintendent Dr. Eric Rosser, City Administrator Mark Nelson, City Community Engagement Director John Penney, and Bilingual Public Information Officer, Julee Molina will be present.

Community partners who offer resources and services will be present. District and city staff who also support and interface with the Latino community will be there as well. The goal of this gathering is to help close the gap in information and resources that are available to help reduce missed opportunities and to help students and citizens of all ages thrive.

The evening will be a "meet and greet" and with no formal presentations.

Some partners and activities that will be present :
 •  Free activities for children offered by the Poughkeepsie Library and Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley and The Poughkeepsie Public Library
