It's good to see Rip Van Winkle back in his place of honor on the signpost at the MTHS! For 18 years, Rip had weathered the wind, rain, snow, and sun at the top of Kaaterskill Clove and still looked pretty good. Now after a summer of rest and re-painting at the hands of master sign-maker, Kevin Van Hentenryck, he is shining brightly again, greeting the passing parade. Our thanks to the Bank of Greene County Foundation which contributed to Rip's repair in their 2017 funding cycle. And a huge thank you to Kevin for donating his time and talent beyond what we had contracted. May Kevin and the sign continue to contribute to the Mountain Top community. Wave to Rip as you drive by on 23A!
