At its monthly meeting on March 11, the Honesdale Borough Council and borough officials reviewed announcements and requests from local business and community groups with regard to upcoming events.

Friends of the Wayne County Public Library announced two library-sponsored events scheduled for next month. The first event is Flavor and Fun Luncheon on April 9 at the Hotel Wayne, with a start time of 12 noon. Featured speaker Pat Libutti is a master gardener, herb specialist and author of “Urban Herban.” Tickets are available at the library for $20 each. The second event is In Good Taste, a wine tasting, to be held on April 26 at Wayne County Ford from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Admission costs $30. Tickets are available at the library; the public is urged to purchase tickets early, as this event is expected to sell out quickly.

The council granted requests for special parking privileges, street closures, signage, and venue reservations in connection with a vareity of events. For the May 10 and 11 plant sale, the Wayne County Penn State Master Gardeners requested the use of the 911 Memorial Park Sidewalk on May 11 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Greater Honesdale Partnership (GHP) submitted numerous requests in connection with the Honesdale 500 Sidewalk Sales Weekend on July 19 and 20. Gail M. Tucker, executive director of GHP, addressed each request before the council and outlined GHP plans for special events, including a feature film presentation in keeping with this year’s Sidewalk Sales NASCAR theme. Borough President Monaghan jokingly asked Tucker for assurance that the film would not contain material of a sexually explicit nature; she replied that it would not, but that it would nevertheless be a film intended primarily for an adult audience.

Country Farm Market petitioned the council for use of the Fred R. Miller Pavilion Wednesdays in June from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays in June from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

Wayne County Creative Arts Council requested the use of Central Park for its Summer Concerts in the Park series on Monday and Thursday evenings from June 17 through August 22, starting at 5 p.m. It was noted that no concerts will be scheduled during the week of the Wayne County Fair.
