Lake Huntington News

By Eileen Hennessy

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend, I spent mine with family and friends, I am truly blessed. I would like to wish all who are going back to school a great year and hope you learn and do not have too much homework. This might come as a surprise, but I hated it when I had to go back to school. Most kids get new outfits and pretty shoes—no, not me. I had that itchy wool Catholic uniform, green socks and saddle shoes (I really hated them). When I went to a public high school, it was so much different. I really did do so much better, and the nuns and I did not see eye to eye. I am not good with rules.

Sunday, September 11 is a very sad day in history; blessings to all the families who lost loved ones. On this special day Lou Monteleone and his wife June are wonderful people who are always here to help the community. If you go to The Corner Store down at 577 State Rte. 55 in Eldred, Lou is once again doing all he can to help fight childhood cancer, raising money for St. Baldrick’s. The event starts at 12 p.m. The Human Line of Hope is at 2 p.m., Conga against Cancer is at 3 p.m., and head shaving is at 4 p.m. This is a really amazing event; please try to get out and join in all the fun and help to support it.
