Hello, how are you all doing? Hope you are happy and healthy.  

November 2 was Election Day; no one is running against me, so I want to thank everyone for voting me in again as the Town of Cochecton Tax Collector. I am starting my 17th year. I really enjoy being the tax collector for all of you. We are really lucky to live in such a great town.  

The holidays are quickly approaching. You may be blessed and not be wanting for anything, but many local families are not that lucky.

The St. Francis Xavier Outreach Program and the Ecumenical Food Pantry both take care of families within a 10-mile radius of Narrowsburg.

The food pantry takes food donations at the side door of the St. Francis Xavier Church in Narrowsburg on Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Please check expiration dates before you give food.

There is also a food barrel in Pete’s Market, right outside the door of the Catskill Hudson Bank. If something is on sale, grab an extra one for the food pantry.

The Ecumenical Food Pantry is made up of St. Francis Xavier Church, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Narrowsburg, Lady of the Lake in Lake Huntington and Lake Huntington Presbyterian Church in Cochecton.

If you would like to donate to the St. Francis Outreach Program, you can send a check to PO Box 8, Narrowsburg, NY 12764. Monetary donations for the Ecumenical Food Pantry can be mailed to PO Box 54, Narrowsburg, NY 12764.

For more information about the outreach program, please give Al Smith a call at 845/252-7547.

For more information about the food pantry, please call Joanne at 845/252-3971.

It’s all local and confidential, and every little bit helps.

On November 9, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. is the Lake Huntington Fire Company blood drive, at the Lake Huntington firehouse, 70 County Rd. 116 in Lake Huntington. It’s time to rise up and be a hero, because the need has never been greater, says the American Red Cross of Eastern New York.

Most medications will not disqualify you, so sign up to save lives now. Plus we’ll give you cookies.

The Cochecton Youth Commission is having lots of events; please follow them on their Facebook page, New Cochecton Youth Commission.

Keep smiling and have a great week. You can email me at leeniebeans@citlink.net or call 845/252-3568 if you have any news. My new deadline is Friday. You can also check me out at www.riverreporter.com.
