Amen, hallelujah: My first brother Christopher who got the coronavirus is doing really well. He is almost back to normal. My brother Johnny is doing much better but not out of the woods yet. My cousin Kay has it now, but she seems to have had it for a few weeks. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. Something very crazy happened to my brother Johnny. He got a phone call from a lady he used to work with at the post office years ago. She was really calling to talk to Johnny’s wife to find out the funeral arrangements for Johnny. When Johnny picked up the phone, she almost had a heart attack. This just proves you cannot believe everything you hear. A rumor started at his job and four people called my sister-in-law to give their condolences. Thank God he is alive and kicking.
I was talking to Jerry Yavarkovsky, and he told me litter pluck this year has been canceled. There will be no bags or stickers available. If you see something on the side of the road and you want to pick it up, that would be great. Jerry told me he and Judy are doing good, staying in and washing their hands. He wishes everyone well and hopes you are staying safe.
April White, the captain of the Cochecton Volunteer Ambulance Corps, would like to give a shout out to all of our emergency dispatchers for National Public Safety Telecommunicators week, which was last week from April 12 to 18. Thank them for their tireless service being the calm voice in the dark for the public in time of crisis and as the guiding light for our emergency responders.
You have to check this page out: The Lake Huntington, NY page on Facebook hosted by Paul Genco. Kristina Snedeker is putting up some very cool pictures from the 1976 Bicentennial when the town had a parade. If you are on Facebook and see these pictures and know the people in the pictures please share. Not only do I enjoy the pictures, but I love reading everyone’s comments and stories they remember. Cochecton was hopping back in the day, so funny to see all the men in suits and women in dresses.
