As Labor Day has passed, so does the end of the summer season as most of us know it. This ending didn’t pass without celebration in Narrowsburg. The Delaware Valley Chamber Orchestra (DVCO) hosted “Narrowsburg Music Day” with the Joe Piela Band playing jazz in the afternoon at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (threatening weather prevented the concert from taking place on the deck), followed by an evening performance of the Emerald Trio at the Tusten Theater and another jazz jam, complete with vocalist, at Gerard’s River Grill after the concert.  Read more

Are you feeling lucky? If you answered “yes,” then it is time to buy some raffle tickets, which benefit St. Francis Church, and possibly you. All prizes are cash, with a grand prize of $5,000. These prizes are so good that even the 4th and 5th prizes of $500 are good, with 2nd prize even better at $2,000 and third prize at $1,000. Tickets are limited to only 400, so you are not competing with the world, just a relatively small number.  Read more

Has anyone been down Main Street on the weekends? It has been so very busy, and it would be hard to deny that we aren’t a tourist community. All these visitors shop at our shops, eat at our restaurants and then leave. Some fall in love with our community and eventually purchase a vacation home. In the meantime, here’s a thought. There appears to be a lot of large homes in Narrowsburg. Maybe you own one and have a spare bedroom and bathroom. Perhaps it might be fun to have guests and set up as a bed and breakfast.  Read more

Do you remember how, as a child, waiting 20 minutes seemed like waiting an eternity? Well that is what it felt like waiting for the fireworks to begin on July 4th. The sun was set, we were ready. The weather, which hadn’t been promising during the day, began to clear in the late afternoon and got better and better as the evening progressed. Then all of a sudden—boom! boom! boom! —the sounds announcing the commencement of the fabulous show were heard.  Read more

A strange occurrence happened on Main Street on Sunday, June 22. A six-year-old girl was tugging at her mother’s hand, looking, almost frantically, for something. I happened to be sitting on the bench in front of the Signatures Gift shop at Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) and asked if I could help. The mother looked at me, a bit bewildered, and said they were looking for the place her daughter had been the day before when she was out with her father. “Where was that?” I inquired. The young girl sheepishly replied something about flowers.  Read more

It may seem a bit early to talk about it, but soon it will be July 4th. Charlie Knapp Sr. has already been selling Narrowsburg Fire Department chicken barbeque tickets, so it can’t be that early to talk about the 4th. For $10 your ticket will get you a complete take-out barbeque chicken dinner to be picked up at the firehouse from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, July 4. You can purchase your tickets in advance from the Narrowsburg firemen and women.  Read more

Narrowsburg, we have a problem! We are overwhelmed with feral cats. Many of you are aware of this situation and don’t like it one bit.

Here are some staggering statistics. According to the webpage of “Solano Feral Cat,” the average female has 1.4 liter per year, with 3.5 live births or 4.9 kittens per year. Not so bad you are thinking. Well this equates to one pair of breeding cats and their offspring producing 420,000 cats in seven years. Now that’s a problem.  Read more

The pansies appearing in some of the window boxes on Main Street can only mean one thing: spring is here. It seems a strange spring. Every now and then you see the remains of snow that was piled high from what seemed like constant plowing. Just ignore those reminders of our long winter and concentrate on the warm weather, spring bulbs peaking up, and get out in the fresh air. A word of caution for you gardeners: be careful not to overdo it. Sometimes you get reminders in the form of evening aches and pains that you have been raking a bit too long.  Read more
