Narrowsburg News 10/12
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. Jill Mackie’s opening at the Arts Alliance with so many of her painted works, from portraits to landscapes, were enjoyed and will remain for several weeks. Act Underground performed the delightful play “Other People’s Money” at the Tusten Theater, an eye opener to the behind-the-scenes negotiations that exist in some corporate America organizations. Many out-of-town visitors remark how fortunate we are to live here, and we should remember this ourselves.
The Town of Tusten recognizes the invaluable services our volunteers provide, enriching the lives of the members of our community. To show appreciation, a Tusten Volunteer Appreciation Day will be held on Saturday, October 14 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. downstairs in the town hall. Volunteers, please join us in recognition of your services.
What do you know about the about the local candidates running for public office this year? Come meet the candidates running for positions in Sullivan County and the Town of Tusten on Sunday, October 22 at The Narrowsburg Union from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. After gaining your knowledge about candidates, walk over to town hall and come to the Tusten Historical Society annual meeting and hear John Dowd teach about the members of the Civilian Conservation Corps who lived and worked at the Ten Mile River Scout Camp. What were they doing? You’ll learn the answer on October 22.
Lastly, another reminder. It’s time for that big fall cleaning, and this year there will be a Tusten fall trash day on October 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The procedure is similar to that at the town spring clean-up: you may bring a pick-up truck filled with trash (not household garbage) to the town barn for free disposal. There will be a small charge for tires, and no electronics will be permitted. It always feels good to rid yourselves of unwanted materials so, feel good!
