Coming up: Irene anniversary events

It's a year to the day since flooding from Tropical Storm Irene pummelled upstate New York. While a lot of commemorative events have already happened over the past week, the next few weeks will see more (including a picnic in Maplecrest that is underway even as we blog).

One to mark on your calendars: On September 22, Schoharie is hosting the second annual Schoharie Valley Rock 'N Roll Flood Relief Concert, featuring a lineup of bands that includes Poor Dead Molly, FlashBack,Max Violet, Chicken Hearders, Shakey Ground, Crash Coarse, Von Rudder, and a special afternoon appearance by up and coming teen country sensation Chelsea Cavanaugh.
