PRESTON HOLLOW — The greenhouse on Route 145 will hold chrysanthemums and baked goods to bring people together at the Preston Hollow Beautification Committee’s annual fundraiser on Sept. 26 and 27.

The sun’s light and residents of the town’s hamlets filled the bays of the highway garage on the first day of June in Rensselaerville for a town-wide picnic.

Teenagers cast their lenses on the Hilltowns in December as part of a community arts project spearheaded by Pastor Wendy Cook of the Helderberg Evangelical Lutheran Church and Altamont artist Laura Provo-Parker. Their images were mostly printed in black and white and are on display in the Berne library.

Pastor Wendy Cook has a simple desire to see Berne residents express themselves for a public installation of art in the rural town.
