Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

What a great weekend I had! Saturday was my 40th reunion from grammar school, St. Gregory’s the Great in Bellerose NY. The school has a 10-day festival each year, so we decided to meet at the beer truck. Twenty-two of us showed up out of about 100. (There were three classes with 30 something kids in each.) Some came FROM as far away as Florida, Delaware and Virginia, and we all had a great time. Among the stories being told of how the nuns used to hit us, was one from a guy telling us how the principal, who was a mean nun, took him into her office and pulled him by his tie, pushed him up against the wall and whacked him across the face because he did not return a book to the library, and when she was done, she told him I will not tell your parents; this is between you and me. Believe you me, I got my share of whacks with that wooden ruler. The nuns would turn the ruler so the metal part hit your knuckles, and if you pulled your hand back you got a extra whack. Ah, the good old days.
On our drive home on Sunday we went to the Conservative luncheon to honor Ira Cohen, who could not make it because he was not feeling well. Ira, the love was flowing for you, from all that were in attendance, we hope you are feeling better. I got to sit next to and rub elbows with Sullivan County D.A. Jim Farrell. What a nice guy, and he is doing a great job.

The Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) would like to thank everyone who helped out at the car wash and bake sale—the bakers, car washers and the people who came out to support the kids, and a big thank you to Gasko & Meyer for letting us use their parking lot.
