Lansingburgh Fundraisers:

One thing is for sure about the Lansingburgh community. Whenever someone is in need of help, people just seem to come together to help them out. There's a couple of fundraisers planned  next weekend, for two long time residents of the 'Burgh,  to do just that.
On Thursday, May 30th, there is a Lasagna Dinner planned for Mike Harrison. Mike suffered two brain aneurysms on April 11th, and then endured more than 9 hours of surgery to save his life. Needless to say, Mike isn't doing to well right now. Having worked with Mike on several projects over the years, I can tell you he's alway's willing to help out with any project that benefits the 'Burgh.  His medical bills are going to be astronomical, so a few of his friends have stepped up to ease the burden. Here's the info you'll need to help Mike.
What: Harrison Fundraiser
Where: Veterans of Lansingburgh -777 1st Ave.
Cost: $10 suggested donation.
Contact: Call 795-4854, or donate online at,\

Lasagna dinner, meat or meatless, salad & bread, available for eat in or take out. Please pre-order large orders by calling ahead..

Another fundraiser will be held the following day to help out another longtime  member of the 'Burgh.. Mike Malone was injured in a pretty serious fall, earlier this Spring, and will be out of work for months -if not longer. Mike is another guy who has always given back to his community. Now Mike could use our help.
