Doreen, we found your Christmas card

The Farm Warwick’s Lee Zinser checked his P.O. Box after traveling abroad for a few months. Sifting through junk mail, he found a red Christmas card addressed to Doreen Doty, from Darren and Laura, with $100 inside.

Zinser would like to get the gift back to Doty. If you know Doreen, please have her contact the paper, and we’ll help make it happen. Email or call 845-469-9000 ext. 325.

Locals support essential workers

There’s generosity everywhere you turn. These are just a few of the many acts of kindness we've seen lately.

• An anonymous donor sent 25 pizzas to the staff at the Chester, N.Y. ShopRite.

• Patty Cakes in Sparta, NJ has been packaging cookies and sending them with thank you notes to local healthcare workers.

• Empire Diner in Monroe, NY donated dinner to Orange Regional Medical Center’s employees.

Zoom sing-alongs

Teachers are working hard to make online learning fun. The West Class at Thevenet Montessori School in Highland Mills, NY has a Zoom sing-along every day for its students. The teachers sing (in Mandarin!) and play ukulele. The kids sing and dance along. They shared a video of last week’s “Head Shoulders Knees and Toes” sing-along with the paper—it made us smile.

Check it out by visiting “Smile of the Week” on our website (and maybe learn a little Mandarin while doing so).
