Adrianne Picciano, The Dirt Diva, will teach “Seed Saving 101” at the Narrowsburg library on Saturday, November 19 at 10 a.m.  Read more

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 highway department and the water/sewer department provided needed help when requested.  Read more

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
