Callicoon annual appointments approved; Greek festival coming in spring

A local youth program and car club will convene a car show in coordination with this year’s Callicoon Center pancake breakfast. The board is excited about that, since last year there wasn’t enough time to organize it. This Saturday, the town’s youth basketball program is starting again. So far 91 students have signed up and more are expected. The program is available to students in third through sixth grades. Further, the gym is open from 6 to 9 p.m. on Saturday nights for high school students to play ball and hang out under supervision. The program has also received approval from the school to use the school this summer for a two-week-long basketball camp starting July 7.

Local resident Linda Reik gave a climate change presentation about the overwhelming agreement among scientists that climate change is anthropogenic, or caused by humans, concluding that we must focus on renewable energy to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions.
