Lake Huntington - August 13

Aug 12, 2019

By Eileen Hennessy - community correspondent

I cannot believe it is Sunday and I have to write my column already. The weekdays just fly by! Thursday, I went to Bethel Woods to see Alice Cooper, he was amazing. I really enjoyed his show. Not only does he sing, he puts on a play to each song. There were two other groups and all I can say is I am going to be 60 and I head banged for the first time. Friday coming up I am going to see Ringo, wish me luck, it's going to be crazy being the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock.
People are coming from all over the place. I live 20 minutes away. I have to go.
I am personally saddened to see Matson's close. Katie, Kathie and Rob Taylor would like to thank all their customers for all the support throughout the last few years. On Wednesday, August 14th it will re-open as The Ruff Cut Bar and Grill. The new owners Annie and Erwin Grome welcome you all to come and try their new menu. The Ruff Cut Home of the Best Roast Beef Sandwich.
John Grund and the class of 1989 would like to thank Allison Brown and her staff at The Narrowsburg Inn for a fabulous night for their class reunion.
About 12 classmates came, 1 from Las Vegas and 2 different classmates from North Carolina, and one from Rochester. John said the food was delicious and a good time was had by all!
Michael Popolillo, President of The Lake Huntington Lake Association, would like to let everyone know that the NY DEC treatment of the lake is being postponed to 2020. All members will be updated on their next step.
The Cochecton Ambulance is having a fundraiser drive to help raise money for a new ambulance. There will be a thermometer out front of the firehouse to let all know how much money has been raised. The Cochecton Ambulances rent space from the fire dept. If you will like to make a donation, you can send a check to Cochecton Volunteer Ambulance, PO Box 4, Lake Huntington, NY 12752.
The Cochecton Preservation Society is hosting Coffee, Tea and History on Sunday, Sept. 22. Guest speakers are Fred Stabbert who will talk about “TREES” and Dr. Nancy Hackett who will talk about the one room schoolhouses of our area. It is free with refreshments, door prizes too! Rain or shine. For more info call 932-8210 or email It is always a fun day!
Keep smiling and have a great week and you can e-mail me at leeniebeans if you have any news.
