A day in the life of a newsie
One of my most favorite parts of my job is handing out papers at local events. I like to walk through the crowd, displaying a copy of the paper and say to people: "Copy of the local paper?"
Most of the time people are happy to receive it. Sometimes there is a cheery response of "Oh, I already read that one."
And Saturday was a triple header.
I started my day at the Honey Bee Festival in Narrowsburg, where purveyors of all things honey were on display. (For the flavor of the fest and fabulous photos by Jonathan Charles Fox, click here.)
Next up was the Farm Fest at Hilly Acres Farm outside of Jeffersonville. (See slideshow story below.) The annual event is a way for Hilly Acres Farm to promote agriculture and give community members a first-hand look at the inner workings (and products!) of the farm. Farm family Andy, Tanya and Mike Hahn opened their barn doors and fields for a day of demonstrations, tastings and farm living.
As my final destination, I stopped by the benefit for the Roycroft Family that was hosted by a very committed group of people, determined to raise $4,000 to help Dorothy Rycroft and her children as she navigates her way through cancer. Click here for more about this amazing BBQ! The food was so plentiful, they needed two take out boxes for each dinner!
As my husband Stephen and I shared just one of those dinners (the two dinners fed us at least three times), I was truly thankful for the great abundance that we share in the Upper Delaware.
