Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

As those of you who have been following this column for a while know, I have relatives in England. I just want to share with you that they had snow on Friday. Our weather has been so mild—hope it’s a nice summer, 70 degrees. (OK, maybe 80 degrees every once and awhile, but I am not a fan of sweating.)

The Chicken Coop on Route 17B in Fosterdale has a new name, The Fosterdale Country Café. It is set for its grand opening on Friday, May 6. They will be serving the same great chicken, burgers, fries and ice cream, plus a few new items. The spring hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and closed on Tuesday. Its summer hours will start Memorial Day weekend; from then on it will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The owners and staff are looking forward to seeing everyone and having a great summer.

The first Women’s Community Club of Cochecton (WCCC) meeting of the year will be on Tuesday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m. downstairs at the new town hall. All women from Cochecton are welcome, and refreshments will be served. Call Pam Deman at 845/252-7208 for more information.

I know some of you may be tired of hearing about The Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) penny social on Sunday, May 15 at the Lakeview Pizzeria (formerly known as Angelina’s), but for those of you who haven’t read about it before or have forgotten: doors open at 2 p.m., calling begins at 3 p.m. The kids in the CYC are the future of our town, so if you have any items to donate, please drop them off on Friday, May 13 from 5 to 7 p.m., or call Eileen (me) to make other arrangements. Most important, please come out to support the penny social.

Save the date: on Saturday, May 21, the Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Grover Hermann Hospital Auxiliary is holding its Health and Children’s Fair. More information to follow. If you would like to be a vendor, call Dottie Schlegel at 845/932-8487.

The Knights of Columbus is having its German dinner on Saturday, May 21, right after the 4:30 p.m. Mass. Tickets cost $12 for adults, $7 for children, with children under seven admitted free. To order tickets in advance, send a check made out to Knights of Columbus with the number of people in your party to Jim Henke at PO Box 215, Callicoon, NY 12723.

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