Pantry volunteers

STILL GIVING — Two older Beacon residents volunteer weekly at the food pantry run by St. Andrew & St. Luke’s Church. Kitty Stager, who turned 90 this month and is always coiffed and nicely dressed, packs groceries on Fridays. Tom “Skip” Skipworth, a lifelong resident who turns 91 in February and was known in his younger days for his baseball prowess, comes by on Saturdays to assist with distribution. To join them, call 845-831-1369. The pantry is open from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays at 15 South Ave. (Photos by Allen Alter)
