Busy with school events in May

But there’s more to do

Posted

Busy, busy, busy! Every May, it seems like suddenly there are dozens of school events you need to attend, plus field trips, sporting events and more. We are on the go most days, but the beautiful weather has made our outings enjoyable.

The following are some other activities and events happening locally.

There is a chicken barbecue on Saturday, May 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Grover M. Hermann Hospital. There will also be a tricky tray and a 50/50 drawing. Email Barbara Donatelli at Bvtd7@aol.com to request tickets.

The Delaware Youth Center River Race is on Sunday, July 24. Register for the 5K run or walk; for a greater challenge, try the 10K distance. There are T-shirts for the first 400 participants, so register early.

Can’t attend this year but still want to join in the fun? Register for the Gary A. Winglovitz Virtual Run. Become a sponsor, sponsor a runner and more—they need your help to make this year’s race a success. Register at https://bit.ly/3FUg8N5.

A spring cleanup day for Town of Cochecton residents will be held on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22 from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Items can be brought to the Cochecton Town Hall, 116 County Rte. 116 in Lake Huntington. Acceptable items include household junk and bulk waste such as furniture, mattresses, carpets, etc.

Other items are also accepted but must be treated differently. Iron pipes must be cut to four-foot lengths. Drums and tanks must be empty and cut open or crushed. Paint or tar cans must be empty and dry—no full or partially full cans of paint will be accepted.

No commercial dumping. No household garbage. No yard waste, leaves, stumps, roots or rocks. No hazardous waste such as petroleum products, pesticides or propane tanks. No computers or monitors and no television sets (all display types). No fluorescent bulbs or lamps.

The Town of Cochecton will accept four regular car and truck tires at no cost; the cost will be $3 per tire after the fourth tire. No oversized tires are allowed.

This program is made possible by the Sullivan County Legislature, the Division of Public Works and Solid Waste, and the Town of Cochecton.

Gerry Kinney’s life remembrance will take place at the Lake Huntington Fire Company at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 21 at the Lake Huntington Fire Company on Rte. 116. Take note of the time correction. Fire Police will direct.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Linda Rummell Blaso, as she has gained her wings and is now at peace in the hands of God.
