The week of Sunday, August 9 was filled with great highs and deep lows. Learning, on August 9, of Grace Johansen’s passing was certainly the lowest point of the week. It was because of Grace that we enjoy a library in our town and the Tusten Historical Society (THS). She had a certain unending positive energy that wanted to create, and do, do, do when it came to programming for the THS. She is solely responsible for obtaining New York State Board of Education recognition of the THS as a New York State Historical Society, no small feat.  Read more

Over 2,000 people enjoyed themselves while browsing more than 70 craftsmen that filled Main Street last Saturday at Riverfest in hopes to find that special treasure. Riverfest has several unique qualities that have continued through the years. Vendors are chosen based on their original crafts, no manufactured products are permitted. A dog parade opens Riverfest and live musical entertainment fills the day. We also can’t forget the popular poster auction that happens only once a year at Riverfest.  Read more

One can’t help but notice how beautiful the flowers look all along Main Street. It is such a pleasure to walk into the post office, sit on the deck or stroll down the street and come to the Mews. Don’t forget to round the corner at Gerard’s River Grill or walk across the street to Tusten Veterans Park. This beauty has all been made possible as a result of donations from the merchants and the dedicated work and funding of the Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG).  Read more

The Independence Day weekend was filled with festivities. The fireworks lit the sky on Friday night, July 3 and on Saturday, July 4, Mother Nature seemed to know exactly when to stop the rains so the Narrowsburg Fire Department parade could step-off in dry weather. This year there seemed to be a lot more floats in the parade: the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance, the White Owl, the Honey Bee Festival and even a Christmas-in-July float, just to name a few. Viewers seemed to enjoy these new additions. Perhaps this will inspire some of you for a float next year.  Read more

It not very often that the Tusten Theatre is completely full, but on Friday, June 19, there was no visible empty seat as the audience enjoyed the performance of Loudon Wainwright III. Additional chairs were placed in the rear of the theater, and a few even stood throughout the performance. This Grammy Award winner was able to charm the audience with his songs of wit and humor, singing about many of life’s circumstances. What added to the humor was that often, one could identify with the circumstance so candidly put into song.  Read more

Everyone seems to notice the little white church perched on the hill on Route 97, south of town, but how many of us have actually visited this church, one of several registered historic landmarks of our town?  Read more

Lately, the subject of the Main Street deck replacement is something talked about by many of us in Tusten. Inevitability part of the conversation becomes the cost associated with the work. If you are able to attend town board meetings, you will note that when the subject of money comes up the terms “reserve funds” and “unallocated funds” are often heard. Because these terms confused me at first, I thought I’d take this opportunity to explain them.  Read more

This week, March 20 marks the first day of spring, when the earth’s axis turns toward the sun, and the days rapidly become longer. Oh, sun, let the melting begin, and away with all the snow! We will welcome the color green once again in our front yards and along roadsides. There are already signs of spring; bluebirds and in some cases the tops of daffodils are beginning to show.  Read more

This crazy, cold winter that has most of us feeling cabin fever has not dampened the spirit of the Tusten Youth Commission. It started the year in January with two trips, first to the movies, and then a swimming trip to Woodloch Springs. Imagine what a treat it would have been when you were a child to be able to go swimming in the middle of winter. Most of us probably remember winter activities that took us outside: building a snowman, ice skating, sleigh riding, etc.  Read more
