Repair Cafe - Catskills Transitions Sponsored Event in Hobart
What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a lamp whose switch won't work? Or with a sweater full of moth holes? Toss it? No way! Bring it to the Repair Café, a community event where volunteer Repair Coaches work with you to fix it - for free!

Repair Café will take place on Saturday, July 22nd from 10 am to 2 pm at the United Methodist Church, 204 Maple Avenue in Hobart. (Entry on the Pearl Street side of the building.)

Our first Repair Café was in Delhi in May, and it was a huge success. People brought in their beloved-but-broken items and walked away with functioning lamps, toaster ovens, vacuum cleaners and fans. They brought in chairs that wobbled and made them wobble-free. They brought in jeans, which require a special button, and got them to button closed again. One visitor even brought in an antique sewing machine and got help learning how to thread the bobbin. 

At a Repair Café, you learn from your skilled neighbors as they share their expertise. Bob Morris, who taught many of the area electricians at SUNY Delhi, will be on hand to repair appliances. At the last event, he was so busy, he hardly had time for lunch.

Fortunately, we have two more experienced repair specialists who can pitch in. Dave West and Steve Tomaszewski are driving down from Ballston, where they hope to start a Repair Café in the future. Dave is a licensed locksmith, and plans to help a local resident open a chest whose key is long gone. Dave will also have tools for furniture repair. Steve is a wizard at electronics.

Do you have a pile of clothes with missing buttons? We have a wide assortment of buttons in all colors and sizes. Bring them along and make your clothes wearable again while chatting with your neighbors. It's so much more fun than working alone.

Sometimes an item is beyond repair, but that's important to know, too. We can't guarantee that everything will be fixed, but we're fairly certain you'll have an interesting time. Come join us on Saturday for coffee, conversation and skill sharing. Or just stop by for a snack and a cup of coffee. All are welcome!

Indigenous elders hold deep, sacred and valuable perspectives that will open your heart to renew connections within yourself, with the people around you, and with the living world. Join us around the fire as we gather with Cherokee elder Dr. Jody Noe and Mohawk elder Gail Whitlow to experience their wisdom. 

Saturday Noon-8pm offerings at 1pm with pot luck dinner

Fire Towers from a Historical Perspective

Fire Towers from a Historical Perspective

Everyone enjoys the views from the cab of a fire tower, but why are they there in the first place? Please join Laurie Rankin, Director the NYS Chapter of the Forest Fire Lookout Association for an in depth look at why fire towers were placed on so many of the mountaintops in New York State. After you see and hear all of the details, you will be looking at things a bit differently on your next hike to one. Perhaps you will even want to get involved in restoring one. This one and one half hour slide show presentation and discussion is free of charge. Refreshments will be served.

When/Where: Thursday, July 27th at the Pine Hill Community Center in Pine Hill at 7:00 pm

SHANDAKEN DAY History
Shandaken Day evolved from the Town of Shandaken’s Bicentennial Celebration in 2004. Since it’s inception Shandaken Day has been promoted as a day to explore everything that makes Shandaken a great place to visit and live. The day of the event boasts fifty vendors, LIVE music, a variety of food vendors, a fire department Tug-o-War and a multitude of Kids Games (including the crowd favorite watermelon-eating contest). We also take this opportunity to recognize local notables for leaving a positive lasting impression on our community with the Pride of Shandaken and Hamlet Hero Awards. Over the years the event has moved to different locations to highlight each of the twelve hamlets that comprise Shandaken.

So far Shandaken Day has been hosted by the following communities:

Mt. Tremper, Mt. Pleasant, Phoenicia, Allaben, Shandaken, Bushnellsville, Big Indian, Oliverea and Pine Hill.

Shandaken Day is usually the last Saturday in the Month of August.

ADVERTISING

Every year the Kingston Daily Freeman puts together a special advertising insert specifically for Shandaken Day. The insert highlights the activities and dignitaries to be honored at this year’s event as well as local businesses and organizations. They also provide us with considerably reduced ad rates for the insert.

Plattekill Gearing Up for the Summer Fun

Roxbury, NY: Plattekill Mountain in Roxbury, New York, has announced changes to its summer operations for the 2017 season.

 

For more than 24 years, Plattekill has welcomed mountain bikers every weekend May through November for its lift-accessed summer mountain biking operation.  One of the first mountain bike centers to open in 1995 in the Northeast, Plattekill became an icon in the industry.  However, in the past few years, there has been a surge of mountain bike parks opening at ski resorts in the Northeast, Mountain bike "centers" have evolved into "parks" offering more manicured, flowy, machine built terrain: something that is extremely expensive for a small operation like Plattekill to compete with. 

 

With this increased competition, the market is now being spread out among many other facitilies.  Plattekill has had to restructure its biking operations to offer biking on a more limited basis this year.  "The Northeast bike park landscape has become increasingly more crowded, which has significantly affected our ridership," explains long-time owner, Laszlo Vajtay. "Simply put, we can’t afford to turn the lifts and staff the park on the same schedule we have in the past."

 

Plattekill will continue offering mountain biking for 2017, but on a smaller scale than in previous years. Biking will be open to the public the first weekend of each month in July, August, September, and October in conjunction with it's "Music on the Mountain" free concert series to create more of a "festival-like" setting. In addition the mountain will be open in conjunction with the "Eastern States Cup" series downhill race the weekend of July 8-9.  Lift hours on all operating weekends this year will be extended and will be open 9am - 5pm.  Guests will continue to have the opportunity to rent biking equipment. 

 

Plattekill will also be adding additional operating days by offering private mountain rentals for corporate groups, private parties and summer youth camps which may or may not include a biking component based on the individual group's needs.  These private rentals will afford groups the unique option of having the luxury of personalized service and privacy catered to individual interests including meeting space, team building, mountain biking, racing or a combination thereof. More information on mountain rentals can be obtained by contacting Plattekill's Marketing and Group Sales Manager, Christy Jaromack, at christy@plattekill.com or (607)326-3500, ext. 116.
