The Hurleyville United Methodist Church is closed for the time being.

The volunteers at the Bread of Life Food Pantry want to thank the community for their extraordinary support during the pandemic.

Dates will be announced on the church’s Facebook page and on the sign outside the church.

In a show of appreciation for their dedication and exceptional service to our community, the volunteers at the food pantry provided lunch from Frankie and Johnny’s Presents Nardi’s for twenty-five members of the staff at MobileMedic EMS.

Bernard Cohen also served on the society’s Board of Director as an officer and a director. He was instrumental in the reprinting of books devoted to the history of Sullivan County.

Columbia Hill Neighborhood Alliance (CHNA)
The members of Columbia Hill Neighborhood Alliance hope that the Town of Thompson Planning Board addresses the numerous questions about the accuracy and completeness of the latest Full Environmental Assessment form submitted to the town on January 29, 2020 by the developer of Gan Eden Estates.
The board accepted the sketch plan of the project presented by the developer, passed a resolution to become the lead agency of the project for environmental reviews and made a Type 1 action SEQRA positive declaration at its meeting on April 22, 2020.
More reviews, permits and approvals are required from the Town of Thompson, Sullivan County, the Delaware River Basin Commission, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the New York State Department of Health.

The developer must schedule a new site plan review with the Town of Thompson Planning board, submit a scoping document and plan a public information session.
