'Last Night' activities tonight in Fort Plain

FORT PLAIN -- Pounding of hammers, the whirring of saws, the hiss of an air compressor, the swish of brooms, and the hum of voices.

Those were the sounds emanating over the last few days from Unity Hall, the former Unitarian Church at the corner of Mohawk and Center streets here, as volunteers and members of Historic Fort Plain labored to install a sub-floor over a large, gaping hole on the ground-level story of the Richardsonian Romanesque structure.

They were readying the up-and-coming community and arts center for live acoustical performances by four different musical groups as part of Last Night festivities in this community.

The music, hay rides, children's activities and other events of the sixth annual Last Night celebration are set to begin at 4 p.m. tonight and run through midnight. Headquarters for the New Year's Eve events is another historic structure under renovation in the village: the centrally-located former Diefendorf Hall at 47 Main St.

Last Night organizer James Katovitch said visitors can get information, purchase event buttons ($10 for adults, $1 for children) and go on rides starting at 4 p.m.

He said participants can park on the street and catch the free shuttle bus, which will be available to take people to all of the venues throughout the evening.

Among the scheduled events include a pulled pork supper at the Fort Plain Reformed Church from 4 to 6:30 p.m., a concert by Stone Soup at the Fort Plain Museum from 7 to 10 p.m., good old-fashioned country western music at the Canajoharie-Fort Plain Elk's Lodge from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m., performances by Steve Surman and Ed and Phyllis Reese (the Empty Pockets Band) at the Fort Plain Free Library from 7 to 9 p.m., and the Jan Cronkhite Quartet at the Fort Plain Senior Center from 8:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Additionally, the evening's entertainment will include a comedy show at the Fort Plain VFW starting at 7 p.m., Unity Hall acoustical performances beginning at 8 p.m., children's crafts and open house at the Fort Plain True Value store from 4 to 9 p.m., broom hockey and performances by The Dependents and DJ-CA at the Fort Plain Fire House from 8 to 11 p.m., the Delta Storm Kings at the Ayres House from 8 to 11 p.m., hay rides starting at the Haslett Park bandstand from 6 to 9 p.m., and a mini-Times Square at the town clock on Canal Street, where DJ Wayne Tucker will count down the minutes to the new year at midnight.

Additional food and refreshments will be available for sale. Please dress for the weather, as some events are held outside.
