Cochecton Youth Commission trip to NYC, Turtle Trot 5k walk/10k run and more


I walked into the Callicoon ER feeling like I was going to meet my maker: chills, muggy/clammy sweats, raw throat and like I had gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson. I was saying to myself, “I went a year and eight days without being really sick.” As I was lying there waiting for the doctor to come in and talk to me, I heard a voice I recognized. Jerry Yavarkovsky was there for a bloody nose and accompanied by his wife Judy. It was nice to have them as roommates. I was told I have a virus and that I would feel like hell for about a week, six days to be exact. They stuck a plug up Jerry’s nose and sent us both home. I never slept so much in my life. I am down to a stuffy nose and a very annoying cough.

Everyone is asking me when Heinle’s is reopening. I was told in the spring, but with summer finally here, I do not think that is going to happen. On the side of the building there is a banner that says “TURN KEY DELI FOR RENT 516/790-6573.” So, if you are thinking of opening a deli, give Laura and Nick call.

On Sunday, June 30, Maureen Ryan Schalck is throwing a celebration of the life of her loving husband George. It will be at Lander’s campground in Narrowsburg under the hanger at 1:30 p.m. Help Maureen keep George’s memory alive: come have a drink, enjoy some chicken barbeque and a pig roast, dance, or share a story about the man we all loved. Let’s smile, laugh, cry and celebrate George’s journey loud enough for him to hear.

On Tuesday, July 2, the Cochecton Youth Commission is going to the NYC Subway Series Yankees versus Mets. The bus leaves Cochecton at 2:15 p.m., and game time is 7:10 p.m. Tickets cost $157 for out-of-town children and adults. As always, the game is free for Cochecton Youth. There are still seats available. Call or text Sue with any questions: 845/866-0853.

On Saturday, July 6, the Lake Huntington Lake Association Inc. is having their annual meeting at the Lakeview Pizzeria located at 23 Crestwood Rd. at 11 a.m. Yearly dues remain the same as last year at $100. If paying by check, please make it payable to the Lake Huntington, NY Lake Association, Inc. President Mike Popolillo says, please bring dues with you to the annual meeting and, if you can’t make the meeting, please send it in ASAP, so we can keep moving forward with our plans.

On Saturday, July 13, the Turtle Trot 5k walk/10k run at the Kenonza Lake Firehouse. For more information, contact April Rutledge (Ackermann) at 845/701-9054 or farmerack@yahoo.com.
