Arkville — The Delaware & Ulster Railride will once again host the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce monthly First Friday eat & meet breakfast on Friday, May 4 in Arkville. The event provides opportunities to make new business connections, brush-up existing contacts, meet new and old friends, and keep current on what’s happening in the region.
All aboard the Delaware & Ulster Railroad in Arkville to be transported on a journey back to the sophisticated atmosphere of the early days of railroading where the best of the fleet of DURR, the Rip Van Winkle Flyer, harkens visitors to a period when life’s pace was more measured and good conversation was cherished entertainment
DURR General Manager Wes Coates will talk about the role the railroad continues to have in our local economy and plans for 2018. Weather permitting, there will be a short train ride.
Due to space considerations, the number of reservations is limited to 40 people. The breakfast is sponsored by the Get Out Delaware County 2018 program. The Get Out Delaware County program is a competition open to local chambers of commerce and business groups during the month of May. Groups will post images of residents using recreational facilities in their communities -depicting any outdoor location and participating in any active or passive recreation – on social media using the hashtag #getoutdelco. One point will be awarded to the respective chamber of commerce for each image posted to social media using the hashtag. Points will be tallied in June and the winner will receive a free half-page ad in the 2019 Delaware County travel guide.
