Happy New Year! We made it through another holiday season and even woke up to a white Christmas in Narrowsburg, with a manageable three inches of snow. I hope you got a cozy sweater and boots under your tree, because baby it’s cold outside!
Where’s Jane Luchsinger, you may be asking yourself? After eight years of writing this column, she retired her pen earlier this month in order to focus more energy on her role on the Tusten Town Board.
A very large crowd gathered in a decorated Town Hall on Sunday as adults tried their luck to win one of the assorted tricky tray offerings provided by many local businesses and citizens, and children had an opportunity to speak directly to Santa and Mrs. Claus.
It sure seems like someone changed the way we keep time. There seem to be fewer minutes in an hour and fewer hours in the day. It just must be. Just a short time ago we were watching as children were dressed in costume trick-or-treating, and now we see signs of Christmas all around, even though Thanksgiving is this week.
This is a test. Name three new things in Tusten (... a pause while you think…).
The New York State Constitutional Convention was the topic of discussion presented by the League of Women Voters at The Union on Sunday. To cast our ballots intelligently, we need to stay informed.
With temperatures in the 70s and fall colors surrounding us, no one should be dissatisfied with the weather. The pleasant weather must have been a factor to bring the “leaf peepers” up for a busy weekend. Main Street seemed packed and so much going on.
What beautiful weather we have been having and just perfect for the Honey Bee Fest last Saturday. Main Street was truly buzzing with children and adults dressed in black and yellow honoring the bees, and many wore a “Save the Bees” T-shirt. There was a lot to learn. It is surprising how many ways we can use honey.
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.
It’s back again—Labor Day that is—and then back to school it will be. However, before you give up on summer, why not squeeze in a great community yard sale? Start on the Flats on Saturday, September 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a rain date Sunday, September 3.
