 Community Holiday Festivals and Tree Lighting Events

Ready to ring in the 2016 holiday season?

Burroughs wrote this on his view from the Slide Mountain summit in “The Heart of the Southern Catskills”…

“All was mountain and forest on every hand. Civilization seemed to have done little more than to have scratched this rough, shaggy surface
