My COVID-19 test was negative, so I went and visited Olga and Carol at Roscoe Nursing Home. They are both doing okay and are hanging in there. On my way home, I wanted to get some more apples to make homemade apple sauce, so I went to Peck’s Market in Callicoon. There I saw Larry Richardson, Steve Diehl and Cathy Barnes. It was almost like a little vacation, being able to get out of the house and seeing old friends. I was talking to Pam Deman and she told me that my buddy Bob is feeling better and loving life.
The Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) would like to thank the 50 children who stopped by the Cochecton Town Hall and picked up their pumpkins and goodie bags. Remember to send your carved pumpkin pictures in; CYC likes to share the projects the kids do. Please follow them for all the upcoming events. CYC would like to welcome Heather Neidert to the board. Heather’s first event was the pumpkin pick up and she did great—it was a pleasure to work with her.
The Knights of Columbus Trunk-a-Treat is Saturday, October 31 at 12 noon at Holy Cross Church, Route 97, Callicoon. Volunteers are needed to set up their trunks and have candy available for the children (trunk set up is at 11:30 a.m.). Social distancing and masks are required. For more information, call Grand Knight James (Teddy) Laffin at 570/493-1660.
There are still some tickets left for the Election Day chicken barbeque on Tuesday, November 3 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Lake Huntington Fire House; it is drive-through only. Tickets cost $12. Please call Ed Grund for ticket information at 845/252-7363.
Because of COVID-19 safety protocols, the Lake Huntington Presbyterian Church Ladies Aid will not be selling the baked goods at the town hall this year on Election Day. They will be having a “bake-less bake sale.” I will share their little poem next week—it’s cute. If you helped the ladies out in the past by buying one of their yummy cookies, brownies, cakes or breads, please support them this year by sending a donation to treasurer Grace Cole at 407 Acto Rd., Beach Lake, PA 18405. You will not have to go food shopping, use electricity and spend time baking. Look how many calories we will all save! Sending a check is sugar-free and fat-free.
Keep smiling and have a great week. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 845/252-3568 if you have any news. My new deadline is on Friday. You can also check me out at www.riverreporter.com.
