Sometimes we become so focused on one thing we forget to put things into perspective. The Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG) was focused on once again winning a big prize from Sullivan Renaissance. The NBG won, although a small prize—$1,000. So let’s put things into perspective.  Read more

Tension mounts for the Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG) as it goes into the homestretch for this season’s final competition. The Sullivan Renaissance judges will be here on Saturday morning to view the 2016 projects, which include improvement of three gateways: the fork at state routes 52 and 97, Kirk Road, and the underpass on south Main Street. An extra project was that of the park on the Flats. As a result of the work of the Multi-Generational Park committee, ornamental grasses were planted on either side of the playground area to prevent small children from darting into the street.  Read more

The last two weeks have been very busy with Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG) volunteers scurrying about finalizing preparations for the America in Bloom judges’ arrival on July 13. NBG volunteers and private citizens planted, weeded and watered flowers and trees from Kirk Road to the railroad underpass on south Main Street. Members of the Lava Fire Department painted and replanted the fire department front planter, which provides such a welcome sight as one enters our area on Route 52. The highway department and the water/sewer department provided needed help when requested.  Read more

Drumroll please… Let’s give a round of applause to Ursula Arnello as she steps down from her role as administrator of the Tusten Volunteer Ambulance Corp with over 20 years of service. For most of us, it is difficult to volunteer for the same organization that employees you, but Ursula found a way. She began her service as a volunteer, and when it was clear a paid employee was necessary to continue to provide the excellent emergency services we are accustomed to, Ursula stepped up. She was paid as an administrator and added shifts as a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).  Read more

It seems hard to believe, but we are getting ready to round the corner to the second half of the year. We always do that with celebrations of our country’s independence, with days off from work, gatherings of friends and family and, of course, fireworks. This year the fireworks will begin at dusk on Sunday, July 3 with a rain date of July 9. Fireworks seem to elicit childhood feelings as we respond to the pop and glitter with oos and ahs…. so much fun.  Read more

Saturday, June 4, was a lovely day for the Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG) annual plant swap and bake sale, and many of you generously donated to the NBG efforts. This year the proceeds from the bake sale were donated to the Tusten Youth Commission (TYC) in support of the work they do to involve our youth in healthy, educational activities. The NBG has been working with the TYC to create a concept to upgrade the youth-oriented park on the Flats to a multi-generational park.  Read more

For some, the night of Saturday, May 7 was a nostalgic reunion as they entered the halls of their childhood school, the Narrowsburg Union. Others walked down the hallway with excitement on their faces as they were about to attend their first dance, the Cinco de Mamacita Dance. Attendees spanned at least eight decades, and grandparents had the opportunity to dance with their grandchildren. Young girls donned their best party dresses and one young gentleman, in his first decade, dressed with a jacket and bow tie, clearly destined to be a future heart throb.  Read more
