I am happy to report that after the last meeting of the Friends of the Sunshine Hall Free Library I can give you a “Save The Date” notification for the Friends of the Sunshine Library’s Book and Bake Sale.

Starting on Friday July 8th, at 4-7pm we will be holding our very popular “First Dibs” Preview Sale where you can get the first crack at all the books and the homemade baked goods. There will be free refreshments available for the previewers. the First Dibs will have an admission fee of $7.00. Then starting on Saturday July 9th and Sunday July 10th from the hours of 9am to 5:00pm the book and bake sale will take place.

There will be hundreds of books to choose from and some of the Town of Highland’s best bakers will have a wonderful selection of cakes, cookies and other homemade baked goods for you to choose from. The Book and Bake Sale is the biggest fundraiser that the Friends of the Library does each year. All the proceeds go to underwriting public programs at the library as well as provide for the purchase of books, furnishings and equipment needed by the library to remain one of the Town of Highland’s best resource.

So please mark your calendars-electronic and otherwise! The other need The Friends has is for volunteers on Thursday, July 7th to help set up for the event. It is very exciting to know the Book Sale has returned after a three-year absence due to the pandemic. If you would like to volunteer, you can contact me at paulacam@verizon. net.

Last weekend the hard-working Barryville Chamber of Commerce had two ribbon cutting opening celebrations which were previously canceled due to the snowstorm but fortunately the weather held up. The first was the Barryville Diner which has rapidly become the town’s hotspot. Having undergone extensive renovations with new seating and lighting the Diner looks entirely different and the addition of two covered decks adds a lot more seating and a wonderful option in the warmer weather.

With great food, reasonable prices and very attentive waitresses it’s another wonderful dining option for us. The second opening last Saturday was at the Churchill Classics Collective in Yulan which is now a beautiful eight thousand square ft space on the site of the old roller rink that has been abandoned for at least the thirty years I have been here.

The building is a co-working office space is beautifully furnished and has five private offices, a fully functional office equipment section with printers, faxes and supplies, a conference room, two private phone booth rooms for conference calls, a state of the art fully equipped kitchen, comfortable booths for eating or working, two lounges and a spacious area of tables and chairs for working lunches. The offices can be rented by the month, by purchasing a five- or ten-day monthly use plan or simply a one-day pass.

It is an exciting facility that also has a massive outdoor covered wooden pavilion in the back that can accommodate well over one hundred people for events. There are storage spaces for rent some of which are climate controlled. The Collective is located at 6 Beaverbrook Road in Yulan next to the Crossroads.
