Landis Links . . . to the Schoharie Valley Association

By Gail Browning

Four-foot wood­en roost­ers, each unique and hand-paint­ed, mark many sites along the Route 30 Cor­ri­dor. The roost­er is the sym­bol of the Schoharie Val­ley Asso­ci­a­tion and mod­eled after the weath­er­vane that once stood atop the Old Stone Fort. The Lan­dis Arbore­tum is a mem­ber of the SVA, and our own unique roost­er perch­es atop the vis­i­tor kiosk.

Accord­ing to a found­ing mem­ber of the SVA, John Wilkin­son, asso­ci­a­tion mem­bers work to col­lab­o­rate on adver­tis­ing through all media, result­ing in more effec­tive and eco­nom­i­cal pub­lic relations.” 

Sue Loden, Inter­im Pres­i­dent of the SVA’s Board of Direc­tors and own­er of the Apple Bar­rel in Schoharie, is excit­ed about the num­ber of events pro­mot­ed by the SVA for 2015 which should increase the num­ber of vis­i­tors to the Schoharie Val­ley. Major events include April’s Rise and Shine” and October’s His­to­ry and Har­vest Fes­ti­val.” SVA busi­ness­es and non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tions will also spon­sor con­tin­u­ing activ­i­ties through­out the year. Vis­i­tors explor­ing the Route 30 Cor­ri­dor can sam­ple val­ley prod­ucts, hike trails, appre­ci­ate cars-old and new, enjoy music, inves­ti­gate local artists’ work, or pick berries, apples, or pump­kins – the pos­si­bil­i­ties for fun are almost endless.

The SVA pub­lish­es the col­or­ful and infor­ma­tive Guide to the Schoharie Val­ley” and oper­ates the Visitor’s Cen­ter on week­ends just off I‑88 at exit 23. Infor­ma­tion about the Schoharie Val­ley Asso­ci­a­tion is also avail­able at www​.schoharieval​ley​.org or www​.fac​book​.com/​S​c​h​o​h​a​r​i​e​V​a​l​l​e​y​A​s​s​o​c​i​ation.
