Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

It has been a very sad week in the Town of Cochecton with the passing of Mike Maas, Louise Swendsen, Brian Yewchuck and Bill Grund. Bill was my neighbor and friend. I will always remember working the Founders Days with him. I loved to listen to Bill tell stories of the olden days, working with him at The Cochecton Center Community Center tag sales. It would make my day when I was in Peck’s/Pete’s in the morning and Bill would come in with his clipboard with his shopping list on it. I was always late for work because we would be gabbing. May you all rest in peace, and love and strength to your families.

On a happier note, Cochecton has a new business: Lakeview Luncheonette and Laundry. I stopped into the luncheonette over the weekend and had lunch; the Sabrett hot dogs were so good. It is open Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday 6 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. The machines in the Laundromat are brand new state-of-the-art. There are four 20-pound machines and four 30-pound machines and eight large-capacity dryers. The Laundromat is open from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., so come on out and support a new business in town.

The board members of the Cochecton Youth Commission (CYC) would like to thank everyone at the Lakeview Pizzeria for hosting our penny social. It was a great success, and we could not have done it without all the donations and the people who come out to support the CYC. A big thank you to Ed Grund for all your help schlepping donations and setting up with us.

On Saturday, May 21, the Catskill Regional Grover Hermann Auxiliary will hold its Health, Children’s & Craft Fair. The day will start at 8:30 a.m. with free screening of cholesterol, glucose, hearing test and children’s finger printing. See page 10 for details.

The Knights of Columbus is having its German dinner at Holy Cross Church in Callicoon, NY on Route 97 on Saturday, May 21 right after the 4:30 p.m. mass. The cost is $12 for adults, $7 for children over seven and free for children under seven.
