The Town of Shawangunk Community Clock Fund was recently established at the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan to encourage community engagement towards the installation of a clock in the Hamlet of Wallkill. Shawangunk’s Main Street Revitalization Committee needs to raise around $25,000 to erect this clock and has begun various fundraising initiatives to reach their goal.
The committee is a strong advocate for the beautification of the Hamlet of Wallkill and believes that the community clock will represent a focal point in the ongoing development. Although the specific location has not yet been decided, the design of the timepiece is in the works. Standing on a brick base, the four-sided clock will be painted green with gold trim and have the ability to play seasonal music year-round.
