Finally, it is starting to feel a bit like spring! I’m looking forward to all the activities and events that the Sullivan Catskills has to offer. There are a variety of events taking place in the upcoming weeks.

The Ladies Aid Society will hold a penny social on Saturday, April 30 at the Lake Huntington Presbyterian Church. The doors open at 11:30 a.m. and calling starts at 12:30 p.m. Hot dogs and sauerkraut and beverages are available for purchase. There will be cake and coffee after the calling. Masks are required. The donation is $1. Hope to see you there!

Don’t miss the opportunity to help beautify the Delaware River corridor from Earth Day on Friday, April 22 through Saturday, April 30. The Upper Delaware Council is coordinating a cleanup of the roadside areas and public properties abutting 73.4 miles of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River in both New York and Pennsylvania.

You can work on your own or join a team organized by the Litter Leader in your area. You’ll be given team T-shirts, safety equipment, gloves and bags, and will be advised on how to dispose of the collected litter debris. A cleaner river valley is up to you—join a Litter Sweep team today!

 Sign up to be a litter warrior by calling Ashley at 845/252-3022, or see more details at www.upperdelawarecouncil.org and www.facebook.com/UpperDelawareCouncil.
