Starting February 1st, Maybrook Scout Troop 236 will be accepting boys and GIRLS ages 11-18! All scouts will have the opportunity to achieve ranks up to and including Eagle Scout. You can also join the amazing Troop 236 band, but that is not a requirement. It is also not necessary to live in the Village of Maybrook. If you are interested, please contact Scout Leaders Abby Williams (845-283-5084) or Bill Giannico (845-527-9333).
Congratulations to Village of Maybrook residents Kimberly and Christopher Houck on their beautiful new daughter! Hayden was the first baby of 2019 to be born at the Kaplan Family Birthing Center at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital.
What a wonderful way to start the New Year!
