Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day

Posted

Hello! Did you all have a nice weekend? It’s getting a little easier to write the column because there is stuff going on.

It’s Saturday, September 18. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. LOL, only kidding.

But George at Lakeview Pizzeria, on Crestwood Road in Lake Huntington, NY, is cooking his famous corned beef and cabbage dinner, since it’s halfway to St. Paddy’s Day. Dinner starts at 4:30 p.m. and will be served until they sell out. Call ahead for reservations and takeout, 845/932-8131.

I wish they sold Irish soda bread all year round. Maybe it’s a good thing they don’t; I would be eating it all the time.

This weekend, Saturday, September 18, the Cochecton Men’s Club is having a chicken barbecue. I am not sure if they are sold out or not. The men’s club is also selling raffle tickets; prizes are nice amounts of money. Tickets cost $20 each. For more information, give Sean Nearing a call at 845/807-3933.

On Sunday, September 26, rain or shine, the Cochecton Preservation Society is hosting its 15th “Coffee, Tea and History,” at 1 p.m. at the Cochecton train station, 8537 Rt. 97 in Cochecton. The guest speakers are Sullivan County Historian John Conway, talking about “From Timber Rafts to Turnpikes—The Role of Transportation in the Development of Sullivan County,” and retired railroad engineer Bill Dudko will talk about “The Advent of the Erie Railroad.”

As an added feature, there will be PowerPoint pictures, shown by Ginny Dudko, about traveling on passenger trains. Passenger trains are a great vacation option that you might consider!

Admission and light refreshments are free of charge but donations are appreciated! You can also tour the oldest still-standing train station, which was saved from being demolished. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

For more info, call 845/932-8104. You can also email cps12726@gmail.com or visit cochectonpreservationsociety.com.

On Wednesday, September 29, from 6 to 9 p.m., there will be a comedy show at Henning’s Local, on Old County Road in Cochecton Center. It’s on top of Heinle’s General Store. Tickets to the show cost $20 plus a two-item minimum purchase of food and/or drinks.

Lineups are subject to change.

Advance purchase of tickets is required, and no refunds are given. Vaccination is required, with an Excelsior pass or a paper card with ID, or proof of a negative COVID-19 test with results within the past 72 hours.

Profits will benefit the Cochecton Democratic Club.

For tickets and more information, go to www.bit.ly/3E0oaCH. You can also give Peggy a call at 845/932-8104 and she will try to help you. You can go to the Cochecton Democratic Club Facebook page to check out the lineup.

Save the date! On Saturday, October 16, the Lake Huntington Ladies Aid will be holding its penny social. The ladies are working hard to get this event going. Stay tuned for more information.
