A good day of Horrors

The roller derby team The Hudson Valley Horrors will be skating around the kitchen of the Queens Galley, 254 Washington Ave., Kingston, from 3 to 7 p.m. today.

The Horrors (love the name) will be preparing and serving produce donated by local farms for The Queens Galley's Black Friday-Thanksgiving dinner service.

Serving thousands of meals each month, The Queens Galley is open to anyone in need of a meal, three times a day. Of course, They also accept food donations.
