Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

What a great time I had at Bethel Woods with my friends Kathy and Danny and my brother Teddy at the Journey, Doobie Brothers and Dave Mason Concert. It really is a beautiful place, and you run into so many people that you know from upstate and from Queens, where I grew up. If you have never been there you should go it’s amazing.

The Presbyterian Church Ladies Aid will have card parties every Monday during July and August except the 4th of July, that being a holiday. So if you are looking to get out of the house, stop by and play cards. If I did not have to work I would be there.

Cochecton Center Community Center is having a tag sale on July 2 and 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. To volunteer or if you have questions, call Sharon Umnik at 845/252-7463 or email smumnik@hotmail.com. Also, she is asking for donations of “old” cloth table linens. So when you are out and about this holiday weekend, please stop by.

The Cochecton Preservation Society’s meeting is Tuesday, July 5 at 7 p.m. at the train station on Route 97. Art Hassis will be speaking about the olden days.

I have been asked a few times about what the Lake Huntington Fire Department is doing this year. I was told they are only doing a chicken BBQ on July 9, 3 p.m. until sold out, eat in or take out. The very yummy dinner costs $10 and it includes chicken, potato salad, baked beans, cranberry sauce, roll & butter and a brownie. You can see one of the fabulous firemen for a ticket or call 845/932-8514.

There will be a big sale at the old firehouse, Route 52 Lake Huntington, this weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be many items new and used, tools, furniture, pottery, lamps, fishing and hunting gear, bikes and more. This week’s special: free-range eggs at $2.50/dozen from a local farm. They are located in Lake Huntington three miles from Fosterdale on Route 52, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Narrowsburg fireworks will be held on Sunday, July 3 at dusk, and the parade is on Monday at 3 p.m.

God bless America, and be safe.

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