September 2021 Vegetarian/Vegan Lasagna Dinner

Our next dinner is September 15, 2021.

Save the Pine Bush does not normally have dinners in July or August as the church is not air conditioned and many people are out of town on vacation. Should the next dinner be in person or virtual? Please let us know! contact@savethepinebush.org

June 2021 Pine Bush Dinner

Our virtual dinner on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 featured Todd Ommen, the Managing Attorney at Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic, and Robert O’Connor, Save the Pine Bush law intern, on the Environmental Litigation Clinic and its representation for Save the Pine Bush. They discussed the proposed Pyramid/Crossgates project and the approach the law clinic students took to challenge this project, including preparing SEQRA comments and filing an article 78 lawsuit. Thank you for all that attended!

Lasagna dinners have been a long tradition of Save the Pine Bush. With social distancing, we have had to find new ways to do our dinners with take-out and delivery, but the Pine Bush tradition continues.
