Southern Saratoga Chamber Mixer
January 2010 by Christopher Matte
TreePaad is quickly becoming the place for family fun and soon may become thee place for mixers! In early January, TreePaad provided the venue for a fun-filled SSCC mixer in which over 100 members attended. Attendees enjoyed the outstanding, homemade beverages and beer tasting provided by Patti Bethel of Coopers Cave Ale and the delicious culinary workings of Chef Rob, also from The Pub at Cooper’s Cave located in Glens Falls. Mike Smith of Dog Ate My Homework (Glens Falls) was also there to make the night more enjoyable by providing a wide selection of Adult books for sale. Aside from the local vendors and the “mixing”, guests were entertained with arcade games, laser tag and even Fort Ballocity! Lots of fun was had, and lots of prizes were won; for your mixing needs, TreePaad is second to none.
Community Generosity at its Best
December 2009 by: Christopher Matte
Sometimes the generosity of a community can go above and beyond what anyone could ever expect and the employees of TreePaad were witnesses to an event that demonstrated just that. On December 20th, Treepaad hosted a benefit for Larry and Lynn Sweet and their family. This benefit was necessary due to the unfortunate events that led to the Sweets losing all of their worldly possessions in a terrible fire; a fire in which they were lucky to escape with their lives. The benefit, and coinciding food drive, went so well that TreePaad and the very generous donors were not only able to help the Sweet family with some money, food and supplies, but also help another family from Milton as well. Mary Woodcock and her family, who also lost everything in a fire, received a refrigerator, stove, washer, dryer and food; much more than we ever thought could be done.
TreePaad would like to give a huge thank you to all of those who contributed in anyway. This event was extremely successful because of you and your generosity. TreePaad would also like to give a special thanks to Mike from Dog Ate My Homework who so generously donated 25% from all his book sales that day. Again, thank you to all!
For The Love of Animals
By: Christopher Matte Press Release - Jan 10, 2009
Recently, TreePaad had the pleasure of hosting a birthday party for a young lady who had a very special and heartfelt request. Victoria Taglione turned her birthday into a celebration that many of us won’t soon forget by requesting donations instead of gifts. Victoria loves animals, and she saw her special day as an opportunity to help those animals she cares so much about. Her request was that those attending the party donate at least $5, instead of bringing a birthday present, in order for her to make a donation to the Saratoga County Animal Shelter.
Also, in order to raise awareness and provide volunteer information, she handed out SCAS calendars as party favors. Needless to say, her party was a hit! Not only did her and her guests have a great party at TreePaad, they also made some animals at the shelter very, very happy.
Victoria’s generosity doesn’t stop at her birthday; she has pledged to donate her time to help feed the animals at the shelter as well. Way to go Victoria!
