Foundation Thanks Golfers, Sponsors and Supporters at Golf Tournament

Sunny skies and moderate temperatures prevailed at Thursday's Golf Tournament organized by the Margaretville Health Foundation. Teams arrived for a 9:30am Shotgun start at the College Golf Course in Delhi and were greeted to an early morning Continental breakfast and camaraderie among golfers. Complimentary snacks and beverages, delivered to golfers on course, kept all energized throughout the morning and was followed by an outdoor barbecue lunch. In an initiative to support our local youth, the Foundation was pleased this year to sponsor four graduate students from Margaretville Central School to join us on the course. The MCS team of players, Cooper Reither, Matt Van Valkenberg, Eric Mathiesen, and Dylan Schaffer took second prize narrowly losing to first prize winning team led by Mark Birman, with Henry Birman, Tom Mirabella, and Lance Levings, a group of golfers who have supported the Margaretville Health Foundation by several years of participation in the Golf Tournament. Congratulations to the winners, and a resounding Thank You to the participating golfers, sponsors and supporters.  Read more

Accessible Catskills hiking, camping and outdoors

Recreation and the outdoors are not just for able-bodied people. Adults and children with physical challenges benefit from exercise and the balance that comes from nature and fitness. Here are some opportunities that allow everyone equal access to the Catskills.

TRAILS FOR ALL

With their gentle grades, rail trails — former railroad beds turned into trails — are accessible to everyone. Try the 26-mile CATSKILL SCENIC TRAIL (Bloomville to Roxbury, catskillscenictrail.org) or the 22-mile WALLKILL VALLEY RAIL TRAIL (Wallkill to Kingston, wvrta.org), which boasts the Rosendale Trestle, a soaring bridge that crosses the Rondout Creek. A .75-mile paved loop and a paved trail to the Esopus Creek surrounds the CATSKILL INTERPRETIVE CENTER (Mount Tremper, catskilliinterpretivecenter.org) which just opened last month.  Read more

Broadband partnership targets rural areas in three Catskills counties

Above: This map, from the Delaware County Electric Cooperative website, shows areas targeted for construction of fiber-optic data lines.

Just as the Rural Electrification Administration brought electric power to remote areas of the nation in the 1930s, a partnership between local utility companies is working to bring broadband internet access to outlying areas of Delaware County and adjacent towns.

Representatives of the Delaware County Electric Cooperative (DCEC), the Delhi Telephone Company (DTC) and the Margaretville Telephone Company (MTC) began a series of visits to town council meetings on Wednesday, Aug. 5 in

Hamden to talk about the first phase of the Delaware County Broadband Initiative – a joint effort to provide fiber-optic broadband service within the area served by the electric cooperative.

While most of the expansion is within Delaware County, it spills over into the Sullivan County town of Rockland, the Ulster County town of Hardenburgh and the Schoharie County towns of Jefferson and Gilboa.  Read more
