The Village of New Paltz will be mulching Christmas trees this year and offering that by-product to anyone interested in it for gardens or pathways.
A fixture of the local scene for many years serving drinks during various legendary eras of our fair little kind-hearted city, Dan is an awesome guy who has seen it all and been there for a lot of folks by either helping them stop crying in their beer or yelling at them to stop singing so badly to ’80s songs.
For a small town, New Paltz is home to many ultrarunners and now its own ultramarathon.

Saturday, Jan. 4: In many cultures, the New Year is the occasion for the expression of hopes and resolutions. The Japanese express their desires with kakizome (“first writing”), the ritualized first calligraphy writing of the year.
This week in Faces of Kingston it was a genuine treat to chat about country music and local memories with performer and local business owner Michele Ferraro. Michele’s love of our community’s people, past and present is inspiring.
While retail stores have blossomed in Kingston filling empty storefronts, the city lacks the practical, day-to-day kinds of shops that decades ago, before supermarkets, malls and big-box stores, made it a true commercial center with residents able to do all their shopping on foot. For residents lacking cars — and for those of us who wish we could spend less time driving — that’s a problem. So the advent of the Kingston Food Co-op, which was announced last March and so far has between 260 and 300 members as well as a building on Broadway in Midtown, is welcome news.
“New Paltz Eve” is scheduled to make its sixth annual appearance on Tuesday, December 31 from 1-7 p.m. All activities are free of charge, thanks to support from local businesses and organizations. Most of the fun happens indoors, so the party will go on regardless of the weather.
This week for Faces of Kingston, as we dive (or are pushed) into the Holiday Season further, it felt like time for a chat with true humanitarian Diane Reeder of the essential, fun and very happy sweet tooth all-in-one stop shop, Kingston Candy Bar.
