Saturday, September 12th, please come out to eat at the delicious Pancake Breakfast at the First Presbyterian Church (takeout only but some seating will be available outside) take a free wagon ride with two beautiful horses, check out the treasurers at the Secret Garden's Sidewalk Sale & the Yard Sale across the street.
Money being made at these sales will be given to the Jeff Dam Project people to go towards the repair of the dam. DJ Jim will be playing music for more fun and your local eateries will have lots to offer too. The Annual Tractor Parade will work its way down Main Street around noon and Daisy Duck will pick the Winners of the Annual Duck Race/Raffle afterwards!
The JEMS Group has decided not to have the children, families and friends grouped together to both watch and catch the ducks this year due to Covid. It would be impossible to keep everyone at a safe distance and masked too. They hope everyone understands and that next year we will return to normal again.
Enjoy a day of art and music at The Pandemic “Plain Air” Plein Air Saturday, September 26th (rain date Sunday, September 27th) from 10-3 p.m. at Hestia's Garden in North Branch.

Congratulations to the 4-H Moo Juicers Club for standing the test of time and the test lately of the pandemic. My sons (many years ago) belonged to this great group, meeting at the Kay's Farm in the Beechwoods in Callicoon. The club's primary focus is on Dairy Cattle with the Kay's family (mom Linda was/is a great 4-H leader) but they also do Public Presentations, Community Service and other project work.
Annually, they take part at the Sullivan County Youth Fair where they show their animals and run the Tasty milk booth too! Organizational group leaders, Linda, Bob, Amy, Danielle, and Michaella have continued to provide support to the Moo Juicers youth by hosting online Zoom meetings.
Our schools are opening soon, under so many new rules and changes to the “normal” way of opening. It is going to be different and difficult at times - everything we were used to has gone out the window. Hopefully we will all be patient and help the children through this. Also, please watch for the children crossing the road to catch their school bus.
