On Sunday, the Cochecton Youth Group had its car wash and bake sale. The kids worked very hard washing cars and selling baked goods. It was a very profitable day, and we have to thank Gasko and Meyers for letting us use their driveway and water. We would not have been able to pull it off without the bakers who donated the yummy baked goods, and Ed Grund, who is the liaison to the youth group from the town board. He did all the schlepping and setting up for us and also made the big chunks of ice, so we had ice-cold water to drink. We were blessed with a hot sunny day, although 10 minutes before we were done, it started to thunder and rain.
The youth group will be at the Cochecton Day on the Lake on July 13 at the new fire house lawn with the bouncy house free to all kids. They will also be selling snow cones, so stop by and have some fun. Do not forget “Despicable Me 2” is playing at the Callicoon Theater on Sunday, July 7 at 1:30 p.m. It’s free to all Cochecton youth.
If you want to know what’s coming up for the youth group, “friend” us on Facebook at Cochecton Youth Commission. Events are free to all Cochecton youth; if an event is open to the public it will be noted in the advertising.
