A litter-pluck surprise

Posted

I hope you all had a very nice Passover and Easter. I hosted Easter Sunday dinner. It was really easy; everyone brought something. We had a great time. I spoke to all my siblings. I miss them so much. Maybe soon I could go to Queens to visit them. Thank God I have my brother, Teddy, up here, so I have some family.

It’s that time of year again to clean up the roads. When we first moved up to Sullivan County, Sal Indelicato was running the litter pluck. My husband and I would go out on the roads to pick up trash. Then Jerry Yavarkovsky started Keep Cochecton Clean in 2013, and it has been very successful. One time, my husband said, “Go into the woods over there and grab that plastic bucket.” Without giving it a second thought, I did, and when I moved the bucket, there was a big snake. Yes, I did scream. 

The Town of Cochecton will sponsor its annual roadside litter pluck. This year’s event will coincide with the Sullivan County Litter Pluck that began April 1 and goes through Wednesday, June 30. Pluckers are needed. Littler-plucked trash will be accepted for free at county-operated transfer stations. Each volunteer will be supplied with collection bags and stickers from the town. You should get yourself one of those grabbers; it beats bending over every five feet. Anyone interested should keep an eye out for more information on the town website, www.townofcochectonny.org. You can also give supervisor Gary Maas a call at 845/932 -8360 ext. 15. You can also contact the Sullivan County Parks, Recreation and Beautification Department at SCParks@co.sullivanny.us or 845/807-0287. I think I heard that cleanup day will be sometime in June; I will check into that and let you know for sure. 

Cochecton Youth Commission is really trying to keep the kids busy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Follow them on Facebook for upcoming events.

The 2021 tax season is over. If you were not able to pay your taxes before March 31, you are going to have to wait till the county starts to collect. 

Please keep the family of Barbara Bellouny in your thoughts and prayers as she passed away.

Have a great week. You can email me at leeniebeans@citlink.net or call 845/252-3568.
