Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

Happy graduation to all 2014 graduates! What great weather you had. I was down in Queens at my niece’s graduation party. She now has her MA degree as a marriage and family therapist. Her party was in the bar where I met my husband Tommy. These drunken Irishmen came in after a game of golf, and they were hanging all over us, loving and kissing us and saying how much they miss my husband and me. It’s so funny how you do not see someone for over 10 years, and when you do it’s like you never left. What great memories.

On Tuesday, July 8 at the old town hall at 7:30 p.m. the Women’s Community Club of Cochecton will hold its only summer meeting. The speaker is Priscilla Bassett from the Senior Legislative Action Committee. Guests are welcome and refreshments will be served. Call Pam at 845/252-7198 for further info.

On Saturday, July 12, the Lake Huntington Fire Company Field Day will be held at the firehouse on County Route 116. It starts off with a pancake breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. Vendor setup 9 to 10 a.m. Check-in for the car, tractor, antique and truck Show is form 10 to 11:30 a.m. The Cochecton Youth Group will be there with the bounce house (free to all), snow cones and a slideshow of last year’s events. There will be live music from 2 to 6 p.m., and the firemen are making their award-winning chicken barbeque, available first come, first served. Call Ed Kraack for tickets or with any questions.

On Saturday, July 26 and Sunday, July 27 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Cochecton Center Community Center is having a tag sale to raise money for a new roof on the church. If you’ve seen the thermometer on the front lawn of the church, they are up to $2,000. The goal is $10,000. If you’d like to buy a square of roof shingles in memory of a loved one, it costs only $100. The person’s name will be on a plaque in the back of the church. So stop by; there will be something there for everyone.

Dottie Schlegel has retired as secretary of the Cochecton Preservation Society after 15 years of service. Thanks for many years of service, Dottie.

Have a great week and email or call 845-252-3568 if you have any news.
