Anyone else counting down the days until spring? The warm weather can’t get here fast enough. I’m looking forward to less-frigid temperatures and later sunsets.

Great job done by the members of the Cochecton Ambulance Corps who participated in the Kent Volunteer Fire Department ice-rescue drill earlier this month.

The Women’s Community Club of Cochecton (WCCC) does not meet during the winter, but the group would like to keep in contact with members, friends and other town residents who may be feeling shut-in, lonely or just bored in the cold, ice and snow. If you, or someone you know, would appreciate occasional friendly phone calls, notify vice president Nancy Campis at 845/866-2343. The WCCC is hoping to have a luncheon in the spring and will again offer scholarships to Sullivan West graduating high school seniors. More information coming soon.

Join creative arts therapist Candace Rivela as she introduces action painting: a dynamic art form that relies on the body’s spontaneous movements and gestures to transform a blank canvas into an abstract work of art.
