Last weekend I was out and about down at the four corners in Eldred helping out at the St. Baldrick’s event to help fight childhood cancer. Lou Monteleone works for months to put this event together; he and about 15 other people shaved their heads, because bald is beautiful.
About six or seven years ago my husband Tommy shaved his head in honor of his mom, who died of cancer. Lou, God bless his soul, honors Tommy with a big banner ever since cancer and Agent Orange got him in 2015. Lou had a goal to raise $10,000; with the help of the shavers and the community, he raised over $13,000.
Last Thursday I was at the Lakeview Pizzeria in Lake Huntington having dinner, and the line dancers came in. I really enjoyed watching them dance; I am thinking of going back and trying it myself.

The Cochecton Preservation Society (CPS) October raffle tickets are available. The profit will be for a blacktop bib at the entrance of the Cochecton Train Station; currently, visitors have to go slow entering because of the drop in the pavement. Also, the CPS is hosting a 12th Coffee, Tea and History, “Civil War & Native American Artifacts of the Delaware River Valley,” Sunday, September 23, 1 p.m. at the Cochecton Train Station, 8537 Rte. 97. It’s free. Come experience the metal detector expert’s adventures (see item above under Community Curriculum).
This Saturday, September 22, is the Roycroft Family BBQ at Hector’s Inn, 14 Dr. Duggan Rd. in Bethel. Tickets must be purchased prior to the event. They cost $20 and can be bought at Hector’s or by contacting Lisa Edwards at 845/649-3770, Eileen Hennessy at 914/799-4486 or Penny Ackermann at 845/701-2065. We also have tickets for a wheelbarrow of cheer. The wheelbarrow is over flowing with booze, wine mixers and snacks well worth the $5.
Save the date: there will be a penny social at the Lake Huntington Presbyterian Church sponsored by the Ladies Aid on October 20; details to follow.
