National Condom Week

Monday, February 14th, 2022

Happy National Condom Week!National Condom Week is usually celebrated the same week as Valentine’s Day in the USA

In the US, February is National Condom Month. Originally started on the campus of the University of California – Berkeley, it has grown into a educational even for high schools, colleges, family planning organizations, AIDS groups, sexually transmitted disease awareness groups, pharmacies and condom manufacturers.

Even though the week has grown, it continues to emphasize the importance of using using humor to help educate. Part of that has been to come up with slogans through the years for the week such as:

Don’t be silly, protect your willy
When in doubt, shroud your spout
It will be sweeter if you wrap your peter
No glove, no love!

While humor is used to help provide education, National Condom Week has become a tool to help educate young adults about serious risks involved with unprotected sex. This includes the risk of catching and spreading sexually transmitted diseases including AIDS as well as helping to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Hudson Valley Credit Union Presents: The Most Important Meal 2021

Sunday, October 24th, 2021

Help local people who are living with chronic illnesses get the nutrition and support they need to stay as healthy as possible!

Join HVCS at the Fishkill Recreation Center on Sunday, October 24, 2021 from 9:00 am to 12 noon for a fun-filled breakfast blast from the past. Every ticket includes a commemorative souvenir bowl so you’ll always remember that the most important meal is the one you made possible for someone without enough food.

Fill up your bowl with cereal, granola or oatmeal and your favorite dairy (or dairy-free) topping. Not a cereal lover? We’ve got you covered with hot food items. You’ll also get bottomless coffee, tea and juice. This year we will not have the cereal buffet but all food options will be self-serve or grab-and-go. We’re also dreaming up new entertainment, contests, raffles and of course there will be the silent auction –all while raising funds for HVCS’ food and nutrition programs.

Our food and nutrition programs serve hundreds of people and families each year, and the budget is currently $10,000 short for 2021. We are hoping to raise that–and double–to ensure these vital services remain available for those in need.

Tickets

Tickets are $35.00 per person over the age of 13. Children 12 and under are free! Scroll down to purchase tickets online or call (845) 787-1789.
