Unlike any time in our recent memory, the crisis that has befallen populations around the world has forced large scale governmental institutions to lay bare the true value of public health and safety. Emergencies, natural disasters, and traumatic events throughout history have often […]

Trial by Fire

Millerton, NY’s North East Community Center (NECC) has become accustomed to providing community support on a whim. Established in the winter of 1988 at the urging of Wendy Curtis and Sam Busselle, through the passing of a town statute, its original purpose was […]

Mindful Eating

Mindful eating for me as a child meant focused attention on the present moment but to a different end. With seven hungry kids sitting around the dinner table, we were mindful of eating as quickly as we could. The first one done got […]

The Constant Farmer

What is the secret of the American farmer? What belies the charming pastoral agricultural spirit that has seemingly infiltrated nearly every aspect of small town life? The columns of mowed pasture that line the fields and meadows of the Hudson Valley, Berkshires and […]

NECC to hold Month-Long Virtual Event to Honor Community

July 2020 Recipe – No-Churn Vanilla Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream, churned with a hand crank on the back porch, or even mixed up in your electric ice cream maker on the counter-top, is certainly one of life’s great pleasures.
