Narrowsburg News 9/14
An upbeat spirit and “happy-to-see-you-again” attitude was palpable at the Narrowsburg High School reunion on Saturday, September 8. Graduating classes from 1947-1961 were represented by the 166 attendees coming from near and far. Celebrating their 60th anniversary, a record number of the Class of 1957 was present. Organizers have learned over the years that reunion participants enjoy reuniting at these biennial gatherings, and they provided maximal time for visiting only breaking for a generous buffet dinner. A joyful buzz was heard throughout the evening. One can only wonder whether it is the positive attitude of these seniors hailing from Narrowsburg that has carried over to make our town such a special place, or is Narrowsburg such a special place that the sense of pleasure of living here remains with us even in our senior years? Hmm... something to think about.
Have you noticed the several new additions to Main Street this summer? Narrowsburg Proper provides us with an assortment of staple and gourmet food items, but not at gourmet prices. Additionally, there is a section dedicated to the men in our area with wonderful clothing and several surprises. Narrowsburg Proper is an eclectic shop worth visiting.
Women can now shop at the Narrowsburg branch of The Velvet Maple. This, too, is an eclectic shop carrying women’s clothing, furniture and home accessories—you can even arrange for custom home decorating. Next door is Chi Hive–Studio for Yoga and the Expressive Arts. Be good to yourself and participate in one of the classes offered seven days a week, including yoga (all levels), Pilates, meditation and more. Check out the fall schedule on Facebook or at the studio. And on lower Main Street, we now have a new art gallery open on weekends. New artists will be featured every month; this month enjoy the work of four street artists.
Visit the new merchants this weekend after enjoying a film at the Big Eddy Film Festival. See you there.
Note: there was an error in my last article. The grant award for the Little Lake Erie Bridge was $198,000, not $98,000.
