NPS Hosts 30th Annual
Delaware River Cleanup


BUSHKILL — Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (DEWA) will host Day 2 of the 30th annual On and Under the Delaware River Clean-up event on July 16. Milford, PA-based Kittatinny Canoes (KC) sponsors the event that routinely brings together more than 100 dedicated volunteers over the course of two days to help keep the Delaware River clean. Day 1 takes place on July 15 in Barryville, New York, on the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
"The National Park Service is thrilled to be able to host this long-standing volunteer event each year for the past three decades," said Sula Jacobs, DEWA Superintendent.
"This event really captures the spirit of our mission to preserve and protect some of America's greatest treasures and we are very fortunate to have such great volunteers, community members, and local businesses all partnering together to achieve our shared goals."
Volunteers will paddle 8- to 10-mile sections of the river picking up trash from the shorelines, islands, and the river bottom along the way. Kittatinny Canoes provides breakfast, dinner, canoes, life jackets, trash bags, and transportation. Volunteers should bring lunch, snacks, plenty of drinking water, sunscreen, work gloves, and a hat and wear sturdy shoes that can get wet.
Check-in begins at 8 a.m. on July 16 at the Dingmans Ferry Access. To register for either day, contact Kittatinny Canoes at 1-800-356-2852. (Rain date: Wednesday, July 17).



Official Paper More Than
Forty Years

MILFORD — Although it has been publishing much, much longer, the Pike County Dispatch has been the newspaper of record for the County of Pike for more than 40 years. That means the Dispatch is the place to go to find out about public meetings, estate notices, bids, public hearings, real estate sales and transactions, and Sheriff sales.

The Pike County Commissioners listed the Dispatch as an official newspaper for legal notices during their opening meeting of 2014, and once again, during their annual reorganization meetings on the first business day of the New Year, most of the other municipalities in Pike County followed suit. So far, Milford and Matamoras Boroughs, and Westfall, Dingman, Delaware, Shohola, Blooming Grove. Milford and Lehman Townships have made it their business to have the Dispatch as an official newspaper.

So make it your business to keep up with all the news in Pike to print, including official business and legal notices from your town.
