FOCUS ON SCHOHARIE: Please help support our local businesses and economy!

Wolfe's Laundry Den on Main Street Schoharie. Opened on March 10, 2014, Nancy and John Wolfe brought back a much needed service to Schoharie after Hurricane Irene. Wolfe's Laundry Den, open 6 AM to 10 PM, offers 18 washing machines and 24 dryers (by American made Dexter). But that's not all. Dry cleaning service through Pleasant Cleaners of Amsterdam -- drop off anytime, returns on Wednesdays and Fridays. As you wait for your laundry, check out the community bulletin board, magazines, TV's, vending machines, handicap bathroom, lounge area, ATM, plus air conditioning and easy to open doors when you carry in your laundry. Coming soon: locker rentals so you can leave your laundry products ($5 for a 6 month rental). The very best part? You won't find a cleaner laundry!

Nancy and John live in Schoharie and have two sons: AJ who is a senior at SCS, and John Paul and his wife Sara who live in Pennsylvania. John currently works at SUNY Cobleskill and Nancy retired from Schoharie County Dept. of Social Services. Both are very community-minded and involved in many local organizations. Like them on Facebook -- Wolfe's Laundry Den. Thank you Nancy and John for helping to bring back Schoharie!!

2014 Pumpkin Festival

What a great day for the 4th Annual Schoharie Pumpkin Festival which returned this past Saturday after a 3 year absence since 2011's flooding.  On behalf of the Schoharie Promotional Association, we want to thank everyone who helped us put this festival on including Schoharie's Fire Department,  Little League, churches, Girl Scout Troop, Schoharie Valley FFA, SCS Key Club and 9th Grade students, Jack Miller Tractor and Truck, our entertainers, Norman Downing and his giant pumpkins, and Spencer Motschmann of Proud Castle Trucking.  Our sincere appreciation to all Schoharie merchants and individuals who so generously contributed to the "Schoharie Sloughter Auction."  We raised $2,284 which will be used to purchase Christmas decorations for the village and expand the Fox Creek Lights in the Park.  Lastly, thanks to all who came out and joined us!

Here are some pictures from the festival.  We're working on bringing you a video of the pumpkin drop and smash.
