We finally made it to May. The snow is gone, the days are longer, and now is the perfect time to spend the days outside. Minus the mayflies!

 Here are a few new happenings taking place in the upcoming weeks, so be sure to mark your calendars.

The Women’s Community Club of Cochecton will again offer small scholarships to Sullivan West graduating seniors who live within the Town of Cochecton. The only requirement is a brief essay about community service. Length doesn’t matter; the goal is to encourage students to think about helping the community. Although the deadline has recently passed, students can still be considered. Contact the guidance department or email pamdeman@charter.net.

Attend a garden barbecue to learn about the future farm at 120 Stony Rd. in Lake Huntington. It takes place on Saturday, May 7 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Lunch and tea will be served, and children and families are welcome. Text to RSVP 609/323-5334 or email silverlotusfarm@gmail.com.

Parking and admission are free, and the first 200 kids will receive a free kite.

There will be a penny social hosted by the Rhythm & Grace dancers on Saturday, May 14 at the Livingston Manor Firehouse, 93 Main St., in Livingston Manor.
