Marvelous Milford; Doing it by the book

There are many reasons to visit Milford, PA. Long before being incorporated in 1874, the Native Americans and settlers who lived there enjoyed the forests, lakes and fresh waters of the Delaware River. The village itself was laid out in 1796 by Judge John Biddis, who named the streets after his children and family, and the lanes after his favorite fruits and berries. Rich in history and historically significant, Milford has been drawing folks to settle, and visitors to spend time exploring its many charms ever since.  Read more

Mother’s little helper

There are so many established days of commemoration that between Siblings Day (April 10th), World Mosquito Day (August 20th) and National Cat Day (October 29th) it can be difficult to rouse sufficient enthusiasm on all these notable occasions. But few among us would dare to dismiss the second Sunday in May as just another manufactured celebration. For on that date every year, we pay tribute to the sainted creature who ushered us into this world. Why not honor her with a day off from cooking?  Read more

Sullivan Litter Pluck scheduled for April 25

MONTICELLO, NY — Sullivan County’s annual Litter Pluck Day will take place on Saturday, April 25.

The Sullivan County Division of Public Works and Solid Waste will donate trash bags for this community-based, roadside cleanup event.  Read more
