“A Taste Of” fundraiser events have been gaining popularity in villages and towns around Rockland County, following in the footsteps of the hugely successful annual A Taste of Rockland fundraiser for ARC of Rockland. The variety of cuisine in Suffern arguably rivals that of any village or hamlet in Rockland County and June 13 is the chance for restaurateurs to get together and show off what’s on the menu in this western-Rockland village.
