“Dress Down Fridays”

On Fridays, the staff at the Avalon participate in “Dress Down for Charity” day.  Every two months,  a charity is chosen and the staff gets to wear casual clothing on Fridays for a $1.00 donation to the charity each Friday.  February and March’s charity is the Dutchess County Office for the Aging, which provides various services and valuable information for seniors and their families throughout Dutchess County.
