They say there is nothing to do in Sullivan County—NOT. I went on a bus trip with CD Trips on Saturday, May 20. I do not like getting up in the morning, so I was not looking forward to being in Liberty at 7:30 in the morning to get on the bus. My travel partner was Pastor Phyllis Haynes of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Narrowsburg. I called the pastor up and said, “How would you like to start our trip a day earlier?” So Friday night after work we headed out.
I booked a room in the Days Inn in Liberty, we went out to dinner at the Liberty Diner and we ended the night with a show at The Downtown Barn. The owner, Brian Rourke, and his staff could not have been more friendly. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, and the jazz band, Gruppo Mundo, was really good. Check out downtownbarn.com and go enjoy a night out.
Our bus trip to Philadelphia was fabulous. We saw the Liberty Bell, Constitution Hall and did a historic tour. We went to the steps were the Rocky statue is. I was going to do the steps, but it was National Yoga Day and they were closed. We had dinner with Thomas Jefferson and hung out with Ben Franklin. Gary, Judy and Michelle from CD Trips made it very fun and enjoyable.
Supervisor Gary Maas would like to let everyone know they had another successful clean-up weekend during which the residents of Cochecton were able to tidy up their properties and make Cochecton the gem of Sullivan County. The town collected seven dumpsters: five 30-yard dumpsters of garbage and two for metal. Let’s keep Cochecton clean.

Thank you to all the vendors and a special thank you to Mike Ottino for the beautiful flowers and new trees for the hospital. A big thank you to our veterans on Armed Forces Day.
