Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

Did you ever have a day that is so busy, crazy and just so overwhelming but still good? Well, I’ve been having those kinds of days, and you just need to take a deep breath and enjoy life, or run into Bob “The Judge” Meyer, and your day will be complete. I could sit all day with Bob and listen to him tell a story or a joke. That’s right Bob, I am talking about you. You said you love reading my column.

The Cochecton Youth Commission would like to thank all the kids who came out to the Callicoon Theater to see Spider Man 2. The movie was good and the popcorn was great. I have to confess I was being a wise guy when two little boys came to sign up; they were so excited, and I couldn’t help myself when I told them the movie had been changed to Cinderella. You should have seen the looks on their faces—priceless.

Thanks to Barbara and Jim Kayton for a good time. At the next meeting of the Cochecton Youth Commission, we will be talking about our trip to Great Wolf Lodge, which should be in November sometime. All details to follow: sign-up date, room information, etc.

Supervisor Gary Maas would like to let everyone know that Cochecton Clean-up Days are Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. You must have proof that you are a Cochecton resident. For more information, go to the town website (www.townofcochectonny.org).

The first Red Hatters’ get-together of the year will be lunch at Peppino’s in Callicoon on Thursday, May 15 at 12:30 p.m. You will order individually off the menu. Try to let Pam DeMan know whether or not you’ll be coming so she can give an approximate number to the restaurant for seating. If you have any questions, give Pam a call 845/252-7208.

Save these dates:

Saturday, May 17 Grover Hermann Hospital holds its health and craft fair. Vendors are wanted. For info and chicken BBQ tickets, call Dottie at 845/932-8487.

Saturday, July 12 Lake Huntington Fire Company holds its Field Day. Vendors wanted. Call Jeff Nober.

Sunday, May 25 St. Francis Xavier Church is holding its annual pancake breakfast at Tusten Town Hall on Bridge Street, Narrowsburg, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets cost only $7 for adults, $3 for children, and under five eat free. Call Jo Kelly for a ticket at 845/252-3490.

Hope to see you on Saturday, May 17, at the free Two Franks Café, which is held on the third Saturday of each month. (The two Franks are St. Francis Xavier and St. Francis of Assisi.)

BTW: Fr. Bill, you did a great job on the new front steps.

Have a great week, and e-mail leeniebeans@citlink.net, or call 845/252-3568 if you have news.
