Embrace the sun! It looks like spring is really here now. Feel the warmth on your face as you look up to the sky, so welcome after that surprise snow storm last month.
Main Street is changing. Tom’s Treasures has closed after many years of providing second-hand goods at reasonable prices, and By Delaine gift shop on Main Street closed its doors this past weekend. By Delaine sold goods only made in America and had received The River Reporter’s Best Gift Shop award. These storefronts won’t go vacant.
This year will be the year of construction on Main Street. As spring approaches, the Tusten Town Board prepares to launch the processes to replace the bridge, technically a culvert, over Little Lake Erie and replace the Main Street deck.
With temperatures reaching close to 60° in February as they did last week, it is difficult to deny the effects of climate change. Over three years ago, the Tusten Town Board voted to take the New York State Climate Smart Community (CSC) pledge, thereby making a commitment to take action on climate change.
The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance’s (DVAA) Winter Salon Series continues to be a great success, as evidenced by the crowd attending the event last Saturday, “Off the Shelf,” a literary reading. What fun it was to sit back and listen to enthusiastic, animated local actors read passages from books found in One Grand bookstore on Main Street.
Just when you think you have had enough of this gray weather, the weekend comes along with events to keep your mind focused on other things—and this past weekend certainly was delightful in Narrowsburg.
It is a pleasure to report that the Town of Tusten has received notification of a grant of $198,000 to replace the Little Lake Erie Bridge (technically a culvert).
It’s time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year. I hope all will enjoy the spirit of the season and spend plenty of time with family and friends, renew the old traditions and create a few more. All at once, in one final week of 2016, all the major holidays will be over.
“He’s on his way! He’s on his way!” I hope you’ve marked your calendars. Thanks to the Tusten Youth Commission, Santa should arrive approximately 8:15 p.m. on the Santa Express this Saturday, December 10 in front of The Union.
On Saturday afternoon, November 19, Main Street was filled with cars and people as crowds of art enthusiasts flocked to the opening of the 12th annual Art in Sixes show at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance. Over 100 artists are represented in this show, with over 500 pieces of work.
