Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

I had a great few days away with my husband for his birthday. We spent it in Old Saybrook, CT. What a fabulous place. We went on a steam engine train ride up the Connecticut River and then took a steamboat back down the river. The next day we went on a two-hour brunch jazz cruise. What a fun time and good food. If you like trains and boats, this is the place to go. However, on the way home, I made a big mistake, which I will never do again; I went into the Wal-Mart in Monticello to get milk and soda. OMG, the place was a zoo. Next time if the parking lot is packed, I will keep going. I am still shaking. What rude people! I left my milk and walked out.

The Lake Huntington Fire Company would like to thank everyone who came out to make their field day a success. I was told the pancake breakfast and chicken barbeque went well. There were over 50 antique cars and tractors to see. Townspeople coming out to support this kind of event is what makes a town a town. Sorry I missed it.
