With the myriad of activities happening in Catskill, it's clear that there is a pressing need for a central clearinghouse of information. To that end, the core of the new site is a user-driven Community Calendar. Now you can see at a glance what is happening in Catskill in any given month/week/day.
Even more exciting is the "Post Your Event" button at the top of the calendar. Any organization can add their event(s) by clicking the button and filling out the simple form. No fee, no sign up required.
The Tour is a quick jog through Catskill's points of interest and rich history on the banks of the Hudson River and Catskill Creek. It serves as reminder that there's more to the word "Catskill" than just a mountain range.
In the spirit of the former Welcome To Catskill site, the photo blog is a running pictorial account of the events in our area as they happen, and it's hosted on our Tumblr page. Several bloggers contribute to the site, each offering their unique perspective of life 'round these parts. As a perpetually growing visual archive, the blog will be a great resource in years to come.
See those blank ad-spaces in the right column? We're looking for sponsors who want to support the site through advertising. Pricing and specs are TBD, but please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Introductory rates will be deeply discounted, so get in now!
We're not sleeping like old Rip! Welcome to Catskill is designed to painlessly grow and change as the needs of our web community evolve. In the immediate weeks ahead, look for guest editorials on this page and a weekly "Best Of" list for what's happening around town. "Phase 2" of the site, planned for later in 2015, will include an enhanced business directory and more.
Welcome! Perched on the shores of the Hudson River and the Catskill Creek and extending to the base of the Catskill Mountains, our special little town is filled with history, culture and unlimited outdoor fun. Come and Explore.
A FRESH START
Here's a quick rundown of what you'll find in the new site.
FRESH... like the new Farmers Market coming to the Community Center in June!
