Jeffersonville - May 21

The “Town was alive with the sound of music” last Saturday night with beautiful melodies of Frank Sinatra floating through the air from Lulus Social Club (over the Jeff Bakery).

The JEMS hosted the Sinatra Event featuring Al Russo, a great Frank Sinatra impersonator, and talented Bill Gulino who played the keyboard and performed several songs along with Al. The music was wonderful, the food was very tasty and the atmosphere fantastic!

JEMS was thrilled to be able to offer an evening out with two talented performers during these troubled times. There may be another performance next late Spring! If you are looking for a place to host an event look into this wonderful venue.

The next JEMS event will be at the Backyard Park on Saturday, August 14th with the “Americana Event” featuring Slam Allen, Amy Galatin & Justin Sutherland. Watch the JEMS Facebook page and this column for more information!

The Farmers Market is returning to Jeffersonville on Sundays from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. next to the Jeff Bakery from May 30th to October 31st. Lead by Wild Russet Farm, they are currently seeking local farm vendors & artisans who would be interested in participating.

For more information, please visit www.jeffersonvillefarmersmarket.com. They thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you this summer at the market!

The “Hummingbird 4-H Club” has been busy! Kaylee, Elaine, Sofia, Mary and Hailey wrote “Thank You” notes to our Veterans-on-Veterans Day and sent Valentine's Day cards to the VA Hospitals in both Albany and Castle Point.

They also made paper flower cards and painted flower pots, added some real flowers in the pots and took them to the Callicoon Hospital and Roscoe Nursing Home to cheer up the patients. They have worked with the Sullivan Renaissance to cleanup and plant flower beds in Callicoon Center and plan on continuing this job yearly. They won “Best of Show” for their flowers in the Callicoon Center Town Park.

At Christmas time they sang outside to shut ins. They participated in the “Jump for a Cause” benefit for the “Ride 2 Survive Group”, and raised over $2,000 in donations by doing jumping jacks. Leader Leah Waldron has been involved in 4-H for most of her life, eleven years as a member then assuming the position of Leader (for the past 49 years) from both her mom and Helen Luckey.

Leah is assisted by parents Bonnie and Katie in leading the group. Leah was a member of this particular 4-H club while I grew up on Swiss Hill. I remember learning how to cook and sew and to do other “stuff”. I really enjoyed the meetings and activities! If you have a child that would be interested, call Leah at (845) 482-4455.

Save the Date: Saturday, September 18th, the JEMS (Jeffersonville Enhances More of Sullivan) will be hosting our Annual Jeff Jamboree with other great events including the Tractor Parade down Main Street. They are presently looking for Vendors, with the fee waived this year due to Covid. Please call Debbie at (845) 482-4151 for more information.
