There’s no denying it. From now until the ball drops on January 1, we are in the midst of the 2014 holiday season. Watch as Main Street lights up, making the season bright, a tradition of many years. Isn’t that what the holidays are about? Tradition. From the first bite of the turkey to Auld Lang Syne, those of us who are fortunate follow tradition with family and friends.  Read more

For as long as most people can remember, a special star has lit up the sky of Narrowsburg during the holiday season. It was originally erected by the Narrowsburg Chamber of Commerce approximately 60 years ago. Years later, likely in the late 1960s or ‘70s, a new pole was set, and the placement of the star changed slightly. Ed Gettel was responsible for the new rigging and cross-beam replacement, which lasted many years. Also at about that time, the Tusten Lions Club became the volunteers who maintained the star, so that each year the sky shone bright with our own special star.  Read more

On Sunday, October 19 approximately 50 people attended the annual meeting of the Tusten Historical Society. Grace Johansen, founder, and leader since the inception of the organization over 15 years ago, stepped down as president, passing the gavel to Marge Janowski, a lifetime resident of Tusten. Marge’s first order of official business was to pay tribute to Grace for her dedication to the society. Grace was presented with a clock as a token of appreciation for her many years of leadership.  Read more

Autumn has continued to show off her colors, but the leaves fall rapidly now, and the sun falls early. The days certainly are getting shorter. It’s time to think more of indoor activities.

Art Hassis will be the guest speaker, addressing the subject of private airplanes and the Narrowsburg airport. The meeting is free, open to the public, and light refreshment will be provided (see story below).  Read more

As the weather cools, most of us put thoughts of our gardens on a back burner, yet the Narrowsburg Beautification Group (NBG) has been meeting to decide on its 2015 grant request from Sullivan Renaissance. An early application process, which they hope to make, specifies an October 15 deadline. You will recall the NBG won the Showing of Flowers award of $5,000 and they received completion funding for 2014, together totaling $5,250. Now that is a great start for next year.  Read more

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
