Was it a very good year?
Depends on whom you ask.
But if you compare this past year to those that preceded it, and compare Saugerties to neighboring towns, we look pretty good. Some
businesses have closed, but others have opened. The new hotel in the village is already planning events for the new year. After a difficult
period caused by poor finances, the schools are on the rebound - thanks in no small part to the generosity of the community. That same
generosity recently rescued the food pantry, whose cupboards, bare just a month ago, were full for the holidays.
