Pine Grove Egg Hunt Set For Sunday

Posted on 30 March 2012 by Editor

With overnight rain showers scheduled to roll through Sloatsburg — turning cold and occasionally snowy — the Pine Grove Lakes Annual Egg Hunt has been bumped a bit and re-scheduled for this coming Sunday, April 1 at 10 a.m. — no April Fool’s. A much anticipated event put on for residents by the Grove’s Homeowners Association, the Egg Hunt takes place on the expansive common lawn called The Green.

So, for all those eager egg hunters out there, go to the Green Sunday morning because March is leaving like a lion. But come April Sunday morning, the day should be bright and shining and perfect for an egg hunt.

Spring Has Sprung

Posted on 28 March 2012 by Editor

Even with temperatures dipping lower at night these last few days, the bloom is on the buds. After a few false moments of way early winter warming, green shoots are everywhere. Leaves are popping. Color pokes out roadside from early irises, hyacinths and yellow daffodils, and in side yards and lawns everywhere, full-on brilliant blooming forsythia. Let’s just hope the frosty morning temperatures don’t kill off some of these early achievers. Continue Reading

Posted on 26 March 2012 by Editor

As concerned residents and environmentalists gathered on Sunday afternoon at the Four Corners Pond in Sterling Forest Park in demonstration over waterway contamination, the Town of Tuxedo disputed the source of the recent fish die-off.
