Narrowsburg News

By Jane Luchsinger

On Saturday, October 22 over 60 people attended The Narrowsburg Union to listen to Zephyr Teachout as she campaigns for a seat to represent us in the U.S. Congress. Putting aside your political views, it was a pleasure to see The Union being used to support an important community event. New, comfortable chairs filled the gym, and the attendees came from Narrowsburg and surrounding areas. It is nearly impossible to avoid information about the national presidential race, but it is the local representatives that bring our messages to Washington, so it was nice to be able to meet this candidate and hear her views and hopes for the future.

Election Day rapidly approaches, and there will be many reminders to get out and vote, but before Election Day there are two local events you should be attending. On Saturday, October 29 the Tusten Youth Commission (TYC) will hold a Halloween parade scheduled to begin at 3:15 p.m. at The Union. It will be followed by a dance party sponsored by the Narrowsburg Chamber of Commerce with proceeds donated to the Tusten Youth Commission. DJ Black Ops Entertainment will provide the music, and a chili supper will be included in your admission cost of $10. Costumes are encouraged. Even if you aren’t in the mood to dance, come out to support our youth and perhaps bring back memories of when you were the one to be saying “trick or treat.”

Next: November 4 from 4 to 7 p.m., a spaghetti dinner will be available at the Lava Fire Department. Proceeds from this dinner, sponsored by the Narrowsburg Chamber of Commerce, will again go to support the TYC. The TYC organizes educational and fun-filled events throughout the year for Tusten youth (and other children at a nominal charge). These events give our youth a sense of serving their community as a positive lesson as they rapidly grow to adults contributing to their own communities. See you there.
