Pleasantdale Association Plans Outing and Improvements. […]
The Pleasantdale Community Association is working on a program of amusements for an outing and field day to be held early in September, probably Labor Day, including field and aquatic events. The association, formed by the residents who spend the summer on the upper Hudson, is also working on a plan for improvements to be put into effect before the close of the present season. These will include the establishment of a modernly equipped bathing beach and the improvement of boat landings near Pleasantdale.
