With temperatures reaching close to 60° in February as they did last week, it is difficult to deny the effects of climate change. Over three years ago, the Tusten Town Board voted to take the New York State Climate Smart Community (CSC) pledge, thereby making a commitment to take action on climate change.
The Delaware Valley Arts Alliance’s (DVAA) Winter Salon Series continues to be a great success, as evidenced by the crowd attending the event last Saturday, “Off the Shelf,” a literary reading. What fun it was to sit back and listen to enthusiastic, animated local actors read passages from books found in One Grand bookstore on Main Street.

On Saturday afternoon, November 19, Main Street was filled with cars and people as crowds of art enthusiasts flocked to the opening of the 12th annual Art in Sixes show at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance. Over 100 artists are represented in this show, with over 500 pieces of work.
The brilliant fall colors seem to be the grand finale of the growing season as Mother Nature prepares to rest over the winter. Gardeners work to prepare their gardens for this rest, and we all cross our fingers that winter will be mild. Besides composting all the frost-bitten vegetables and flowers, one is able to save seed for next spring.
On Saturday, October 22 over 60 people attended The Narrowsburg Union to listen to Zephyr Teachout as she campaigns for a seat to represent us in the U.S. Congress. Putting aside your political views, it was a pleasure to see The Union being used to support an important community event.
At the same time crowds gathered on Saturday, October 8 to demonstrate respect for the endangered honey bee at the second annual Honeybee Fest, the America in Bloom annual awards ceremony and symposium took place in Arroyo Grande, CA.
