Food pantry memories

Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well. The tax books for the Town of Cochecton are closed. If you were not able to make a payment, you can call the Sullivan County Treasurer for your new amount at 845/807-0200; they can give you the new amount due. I was told that the highest percentage collected among all counties in the state was 97 percent, but I do not think that was Sullivan County. I will find out and let you know.

I was out and about during this week and ran into Barbara Peters and Fred Krasselt. We used to work together in the Ecumenical Food Pantry in Narrowsburg. For the life of me, I could not remember their last names, so I called Barbara Drollinger, former president of the food pantry, and she could not remember either. I called Jennifer, the current president of the food pantry, and finally got the names. I called Barbara back to tell her and she told me her husband, Bob, fell backward and broke his pelvis. He is in Grover Hermann Hospital for rehab. Please keep Bob and Barbara Drollinger in your thoughts and prayers; I know they would be much appreciated. The Ecumenical Food Pantry is located in Narrowsburg in the basement of St. Fancies Xavier Church. It covers a 10-mile radius for families in need. The food pantry is an emergency one; you can go once a month after you fill out an application and get approved. The churches involved are St. Francis Xavier, The Lady of the Lake, Lake Huntington Presbyterian Church, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, the Methodist churches in the area and the Upper Delaware Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship. If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can send a check to Ecumenical Food Pantry P.O. Box 54 Narrowsburg, NY 11764. To donate food or fill out an application, please give Jennifer a call at 845/252-6761 for more information.

Paul Genco remembers that in the early ’70s he would walk to the Nutshell on a Saturday night and there would be a great band playing; the cars would be parked all the way up to Smales Road. All through the town, people came from all over, especially from Pennsylvania, because the drinking age in New York was 18 at the time and 21 in Pennsylvania. If you have any interesting stories, please share them on Facebook. I am sure many people would love to read them.

Have a great week. Email me if you have any news you want to get out there at leeniebeans@citlink.net. You can always find me online at community living.
