Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

I think I found the answer to having something to write about: I have to stay home and be out and about. Thursday night I went to the high school to watch the Senior Spring Concert. I cannot believe how talented these kids are. I saw the same faces in the play “Damn Yankees.” They can sing and play their instruments just as well as Broadway performers.

It was very cool how they snapped their fingers and slapped their legs to make music, and when they played “Listen to the Rain,” Mother Nature chimed in with thunder and a heavy downpour. When I left, I went out the wrong door and had to walk around the entire school. It was OK; I was singing “Who Put the Bomp in the Bomp Bah Bomp” and the song from “Grease,” “We Go Together.” On my way to the car, I had a nice chat with Helene Indelicato and Mildred Meyer, and Carol and Dennis Nearing, whose granddaughter Izzy did a solo on her saxophone. Great night out.

Congratulations to Etta Pierce for being honored as Cochecton’s volunteer at the community awards at the RSVP 43rd luncheon. Etta is a blessing to our town.

On Saturday, I was at the Trout Parade in Livingston Manor. It was so cold to begin with that I had to dig through my car and find a pair of socks and get a sweatshirt. By the time the parade started I was stripping, it got so hot. I loved watching all the floats and stilt walkers in the parade, and the kids dressed as pirates. The bands were excellent; I really enjoyed it. I was not able to go to the Tractor Parade in Callicoon; I was cooking for a barbeque with friends.

Earlier, I went into Peck’s to get something to eat for breakfast and had a nice conversation with Jeff Gombita. I miss seeing him every day at the banana tree in Pecks.
