Toys For Tots

Saturday, December 6th at 4:00 pm in the Village of Delanson

Toys for Tots, a 67 year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season.  The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime.  It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.  Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 6.8 million less fortunate children in 762 communities nationwide.  Since 1947 over 223 million children have been assisted. For more information, visit

Please join us for some holiday fun and refreshments as we celebrate the reason for this season! 

Refreshments courtesy of Dunkin Donuts.

Email Notification System

The Village of Delanson has initiated a new Email Notification system whereby residents can be notified by email immediately of important information or any emergency situation that has developed in the Village.  Examples would be water main breaks, water main repairs, hydrant flushing, sudden changes in Village services such as garbage pickup or snow plowing, flooding, road closings, damaged roads etc..  Emails will not be sent for normal news items, notices or scheduled events.

In addition, updates will be emailed to keep residents informed of the ongoing circumstances as new information is received by the Village until the event or emergency is over.

There is no cost for this service.  Simply fill in your email address in the box on the lower left sidebar of this page and click the SUBMIT button.  You will receive an email asking you to confirm your decision to receive these bulletins.  Once we receive your confirmation, you will be added to our mailing list to receive theses notices. OR, you can send an email to and ask to be added to the email notification list.  That’s it!  Please do not send an email to the village clerk as this will not add your name to the notification list.

Your privacy is important to us. Your email address will not be shared, sold or used in any other capacity and you may unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link on any email you receive or by contacting the web guy at

We hope this new feature will not only help keep our residents well informed but safer during emergency situations.
