FROM THE MAYOR’S OFFICE – The Merry Month of May

Wet, cold, damp yet life goes on – we celebrate our moms. The Farmers Market begins, it is the season of communions, confirmations and duck derbies. We’ve wakened from winter dormancy to a full-blown calendar of community events. In between the rainy days – that rare dose of sunshine we run to cut the grass and weed the garden. Looking at the weather reports with disbelief at a mercury that won’t budge, long johns are going the distance. Will they be retired by June? We grin and bear it, it makes for a vibrant spring though too much wet, especially in the mucklands can be a challenge for our farmers.

Some events on the horizon:

The 29th Annual Duck Derby is Sunday May 19th at 1:30pm along the Wawayanda Creek in the heart of the Village. For information and where to, “adopt a duck” go to or call 845-986-6686.
