Just got this report from a friend down by Livingstonville

We can’t get through to Livingstonville – they had a mudslide down the road.  145 is blocked by rocks along a small bridge 2000’ towards Livingstonville & only a 4 wheeler can get there.  300” to the right towards Preston Hollow had tons of water, but 2 guys took out there equipment & they tried to stop the flow of the water from getting onto 145




·         Schoharie state of emergency remains in effect








If anyone directly affected by Irene is interested in 2 twin beds and frames (used but in very good condition and CLEAN), call.

If anyone is also interested in a day's worth of mostly on the ground chain saw cutting of trees/branches free, call.


This is purely a volunteer free effort...only interested in helping directly impacted victims.

I am happy to see that your Trading Post made it through the storm, and my prayers are with those in Middleburgh (my nephew being one although he lives up on the hill.  His stream flooded).  It is so beautiful in the whole Schoharie Valley.

 Last week, I met some people from just outside of Middleburgh who have an organic farm.  My prayers that you will all rise up better than ever.



I’m so sorry.  That area is so beautiful and it is really sad for the farmers and everyone else too.  I grew up on a ranch in SD. And know the perils of farming and cattle ranching.   It was one of the reasons I decided very early in life that I would go to school and head to a city to teach.

Is there something we can do here, I am the coordinator of a small quilting group here is Stephentown and we do what we call “cuddle quilts” about 45-52” in size, maybe a few are larger.  Would that be something that could be of use in that area?  Do you have a food pantry or someone I could get in touch with.  Our group has not met the month of August and I am not sure of the number of quilts that we have, I think around 15-20 of them.  Let me know your thought and I would appreciate any suggestions.  Donna
