This just in from Town of Wawarsing Supervisor, Scott Carlsen.

On Thursday 6/20/13 at 7:15PM there is a public hearing at our Town Board meeting. The purpose of this Public Hearing is to seek comments and suggestions from the public as to proposed uses for the Town of Wawarsing Fiscal Year 2013 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CBDG).

Our intent with the grant is to upgrade the water storage facilities in the Kerhonkson Water District. This would be a $600,000 grant for that purpose. Your support would be appreciated.

May 13, 2013



Kerhonkson Day 5k run and walk now open for registration

You can now register for the 2013 Kerhonkson Day 5k run and walk. Paper and online registration is available at  The race is Saturday August 24th at 9:30am and kicks off Kerhonkson Day on the green in front of the Kerhonkson firehouse. Registration is $10 before August 1st, $15 August 1st or later. The first 100 registrants will get a Kerhonkson Day 5k t-shirt. Every participant will get a chance to win a ducky in the Kerhonkson Day “Great Ducky Race.” There will be breakfast for runners after the race and prizes will be given by age group. All proceeds will benefit the Friends of Historic Kerhonkson.

Chris DePew, President of the Friends of Historic Kerhonkson, said “The Kerhonkson Day 5k is a great way to start Kerhonkson Day. We had over 2000 people in Kerhonkson for last year’s event, where people can enjoy a full day of activities. After the race we have musical entertainment, the Great Ducky Race, craft vendors and food.”

Scott Carlsen, Supervisor of the Town of Wawarsing, said “Kerhonkson Day has grown into a top annual event in the Town of Wawarsing and Ulster County.  The 5K race has been successful and we look forward to developing this into one of the premier events for our area.  This years race looks to be even bigger than ever and should draw a good field of runners.  From the world famous duck race, to many vendors, and great music, this is an event that you will not want to miss.”

Gregg Kenney, race director for the event, said “Last year we had the First Ever Kerhonkson Day 5k and it was a great success. We had 92 registrants and a lot of happy faces in downtown Kerhonkson. This year we are anticipating 150 entrants and have a bunch of great prizes for runners and walkers. The course is terrific; it goes up the hill from the firehouse and winds through Kerhonkson before going out scenic Berme road. The final leg of the race is on the rail trail beside the Rondout creek back to the firehouse. The thing that runners seem to like most is our ability to limit traffic on the course; that is unusual for a smaller 5k event.”

A Successful Clean Up of Rt. 209

A big thank you to everyone who came out on the morning of April 20th to clean up Route 209 between 42nd Street and Boice Mill . We filled 22 orange bags of debris along that stretch of road. If anyone is looking for a rusted tricycle, a pink flip flop or an expired realty license, they have now gone to a better place.
