The Coeymans Hollow Ladies Auxiliary will once again be making their delicious Manhattan Clam Chowder this Friday March 8, the second of three sales during Lent. The Ladies will be busy chopping the freshest vegetables available and combining them with spices and clams to make our Chowder delicious. Our Chowder also freezes very well so you can stock up and enjoy it all year long. The Chowder Sale will begin at 4:00p.m. at the Coeymans Hollow Fire House, State Rt 143 in Coeymans Hollow. Please come out to the Hollow to purchase the best and freshest Chowder in town. All proceeds from the Chowder Sale will benefit the Coeymans Hollow Scholarship Fund. We appreciate your support of the Coeymans Hollow Ladies Auxiliary. NOTE The third and final Chowder sale will be held on Friday March 22.
