Happy EMS Week

Will we ever go back to normal? What even is normal? 

I stay in. I only go out to go food shopping, visit the bank or post office, or stop at the office. Both of my brothers are doing much better;  younger brother Christopher has the anti-bodies. My older brother Johnny finally got a negative test after three positive ones. Johnny is doing good; he is back to work and is so grateful for all the prayers and well wishes. 

Supervisor Gary Maas would like to let everyone know that the litter pluck will be held from Monday, May 18 to Tuesday, June 30. Cleanup day will be sometime in August. You can always check out the town’s website for more information, including when bags and stickers will be available.

The Cochecton Volunteer Ambulance would like to let you know that this week is National EMS week. The theme of EMS week 2020 is “ready today, preparing for tomorrow.” This year is different in many ways, but it is a great time to recognize the hard work and sacrifices that folks in EMS put in every day, 24/7, 365. Despite this, only a handful of states in the U.S. have EMS recognized as an essential service like fire and police. New York is not one of them. While we always need more people to volunteer and help, one way that everyone can contribute is by making this fact known to our state representatives. Cochecton Ambulance is still going strong and looking forward to the summer season and interaction with the community when the restrictions are lifted. Happy EMS week.

The Cochecton Youth Commission says to watch out for your game night activity; they will be delivered right to your door step. Follow CYC on Facebook for upcoming events.

Pastor Phyllis at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is hosting mass online at 9:30 a.m. every Sunday. Watch it any time on their Facebook page. 

Grover M. Hermann Hospital Auxiliary sadly announces there will not be a health fair this year.

Be safe, wash your hands and wear your mask.

Keep smiling and have a great week. You can email me at leeniebeans@citlink.net or call 845/252-3568 if you have any news. My new deadline is Fridays. You can also check me out at www.riverreporter.com in community living.
