Schoharie Promotional Association

Support and Achievements

Included on this page are some of our notable achievements as well as supported projects, both past and present.

Welcoming new businesses

Promotional is committed to attracting new businesses by promoting activities in the village and town that will bring people to our area.  Each new business receives a floral gift and a free year’s membership to Schoharie Promotional.  Promotional encourages merchants to join our organization and welcomes their participation.


  Benches on Main Street In 2009, after the completion of the village sidewalk rehabilitation and new streetlamp project, Schoharie Promotional purchased two new benches which have been placed on Main Street. 


Trash Can Covers 
In May of 1990, six wooden trash can covers were completed, led by President Jim Getman.  These wooden enclosures have served on Main Street for the last 20 years. 

Update 2011:  Six new trash cans were built for Promotional and have replaced our 20 years old covers.

Flower Barrels on Main Street

It has been a long standing tradition to plant flowers in barrels on Main Street.  Many thanks to Schoharie Valley Farms for their generous donation of plants for our barrels.

Update 2011:  20 replacement barrels and liners were purchased to replace most of our original barrels.
Update 2012:  Only a couple of our new replacement barrels and liners were recovered after the August 28, 2011 flood.  20 new barrels and liners were purchased again in 2012 to replace those lost in the flood.

The Village Clock

After years of planning and saving, the Promotional Association purchased and dedicated the village clock on October 21, 2007.  With a double face and the Village of Schoharie inscription and incorporation date, the clock stands proudly in front of the county courthouse.  Thanks to Guernsey’s Schoharie Nurseries for the landscaping around the clock.
