Cochecton Yankees We at Freda Real Estate are proud to be the sole sponsors of The Cochecton Yankees -- a Little League type baseball team and part of the Delaware Valley Little Fellows League.  The field is located in Cochecton, NY, very near the Delaware River.  We are proud of these young men and women and wish them luck this season! Probably the coolest things to see other than the home runs and triple plays are the resident bald eagles that fly over the field on their way to their nest after a day of fishing. 


Email Callicoon Canoe
Callicoon Canoe Regatta The Callicoon Canoe Regatta is the largest community project that Freda Real Estate is responsible for. Set on the Delaware River, and right behind our office, we started the race over 10 years ago with the help of some able volunteers and annual sponsors. This canoe and kayak race warms the hearts (and bodies!) of hundreds of competitors in Callicoon. It is an annual event with many classes from beginners to experts. The prime focus is a canoe race but any proceeds directly benefit the Delaware Youth Center here in Callicoon. Over the past 10 years thousands of dollars have been raised for the Youth Center. See www.callicooncanoeregatta.com for more info.
