Out Lexington Way: Memorial Park looking nice with new tree

June 12, 2019 10:32 am Updated: June 12, 2019 11:34 am


Have you noticed how nice the Memorial Park with the flag pole looks in West Kill? The overgrown, diseased tree that was ripping the American Flag has been removed and replaced, through the West Kill/Lexington Community Improvement Association, with a smaller easier to maintain tree. Many thanks to Pam and Jim Tilp for all the years they maintained and raised funds for the flowers and American flags in West Kill.

Did you see “We Salute You U.S. Army Sgt E-5 Robert Gurley of Prattsville” on WNYT Channel 13 on June 7? Thank you for your service Bob and all the men and women who serve.

The Lexington Farmers Market was a busy place on a beautiful, sunny June 8. All kinds of delectable local produce and products are available every other Saturday through October from 10 a.m.-noon under the pavilion at the Lexington Municipal building, 3542 Route 42.

Thank you all who came to enjoy, make salads, prepared all those luscious strawberries and worked at the Lexington/West Kill UMC Strawberry Supper on June 8. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Come and sit a spell on the lovely benches, courtesy of the West Kill/Lexington Community Improvement Association, that have been placed here and there along Spruceton Road. Rest for awhile if you are hiking or biking and enjoy the beauty of our Spruceton Valley.
