With temperatures in the 70s and fall colors surrounding us, no one should be dissatisfied with the weather. The pleasant weather must have been a factor to bring the “leaf peepers” up for a busy weekend. Main Street seemed packed and so much going on.
What beautiful weather we have been having and just perfect for the Honey Bee Fest last Saturday. Main Street was truly buzzing with children and adults dressed in black and yellow honoring the bees, and many wore a “Save the Bees” T-shirt. There was a lot to learn.

An upbeat spirit and “happy-to-see-you-again” attitude was palpable at the Narrowsburg High School reunion on Saturday, September 8.

Just like other animals, we as humans on this earth are exposed to many cycles: the sun on a daily basis, the moon on a monthly basis and the seasons quarterly. Currently it is so clear that we have arrived in the summer cycle, not just because of temperature and long days of daylight, but because of the Upper Delaware’s social calendar.
If you drove on Bridge Street headed toward Main Street this past Saturday evening, you may have been part of a traffic jam as guests gathered at The Union.
