We’ve lobbied really hard for Garrison Keillor to give up life in Lake Wobegone and move to Sharon Springs,  but thus far he has not answered our letters or returned our calls.

Sharon Springs has beautiful people and above-average children, too, so on to Plan B.

What is a small town village without a small town paper to keep track of what everyone is doing?

Leila Durkin, proprietor of The Village Hall Gallery, is now editor of our own little paper.

Each month you can check back here for a new issue and follow the lives of the real village people.  If you pay a real visit, you  may even want to submit a story idea of your own!

You may not live in small town, but at least you can pretend.

The Chatter gets richer, fuller, fab-ber with every new edition. Well done, Leila! and thanks for the blurb for the Van Alstyne do on December 4th, too.

Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to the Sharon Springs Chatter! I call Cherry Valley home and it's always so amazing to learn the quiet accomplishments and talents of neighbors. Despite how rural the area is, there are so many activities for our residents and visitors alike. Thanks for helping to bring attention to all Sharon Springs has to offer!
