Pine Plains, NY:  Pine Plains Memorial Hall (PPMH) is announcing it is changing its name to The Stissing Center.

“In a few short months we will be opening our doors and entering an exciting new phase in our development,” said Executive Director, Brian Keeler. “We wanted a name that reflects our mission to be the center of cultural and artistic life in Pine Plains and the Northern Dutchess County region, while helping to revitalize the local economy. There is no better way to celebrate Pine Plains than to include a reference to the locally iconic Stissing mountain. We are sending this announcement today because we have major event news on the immediate horizon, and we want to make those announcements under our new name.

“We are not taking our eyes off the big picture, however” added Keeler. “Construction will continue and that means our fundraising will continue. There’s a lot of excitement literally building in Pine Plains.”
