Webutuck Challenge ‘pies’ the community
WEBUTUCK — Members of the Webutuck Central School District community were willing to take a pie to the face to show their support for their local fire departments as part of the 2020 Webutuck Challenge.
Organized by Webutuck teachers Robert Reid and Sherry Fisher, the Webutuck Challenge was created as a way to benefit the Amenia, Millerton and Wassaic fire departments. With a goal of raising $30,000 to benefit the first responders, the community was able to raise $1,800 as of Friday, May 8. Community members of all ages can participate in the challenge by going online to https://www.gofundme.com/f/webutuck-challenge. From there, they can either make a donation or sign up to make a video of themselves taking a pie to the face.
Local residents interested in watching the compilation video of Webutuck teachers, students and community members taking the Webutuck Challenge can do so by going online to the “Webutuck Central School District” Facebook page or to the district website at www.webutuckschools.org.
