The Ulster County town of Olive has a lot to celebrate this week.
On Tuesday, Sept. 8, State Senator James L. Seward announced that the town will receive $150,000 in grants to buy new police equipment and to replace the roof of the town highway garage. The grants will help the town make improvements without raising property taxes, Seward said in a press release.
This Saturday, Olive celebrates its 42nd annual Olive Day at Davis Park in West Shokan with a "food and farms" theme. There will be food vendors, dancing and games, and Ben Rounds, The Pontiacs and the Spillway Band will play live. The highlight of the day is a puppet show performance of “The Rejuvenary River Circus” by Arm of the Sea Theater, sponsored by the Olive Free Library.
Olive Day. Saturday, Sept. 12, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Davis Park, West Shokan, Olive.
