Lake Huntington - April 6

Posted

I hope you all had a very nice Passover and Easter. I hosted Easter Sunday dinner. We had a great time, it was really easy, everyone brought something. I spoke to all my siblings. I miss them so much, maybe soon I could go to Queens to visit them. Thank God I have my brother Teddy up here so I have some family.

It's that time of year again to clean up the roads. When we first moved up to Sullivan County, Sal Indelicato was running the litter pluck. My husband and I were out on the roads picking up trash. Then Jerry Yavarkovsky started ‘Keep Cochecton Clean' in 2013, and it has been very successful. One time my husband said, “just go into the woods over there and grab that plastic bucket.” Without giving it a second thought I did and when I moved the bucket there was a big snake! Yes, I did scream.

The Town of Cochecton will sponsor their annual roadside litter pluck. This year's event will coincide with Sullivan County Litter Pluck on Thursday, April 1st to Wednesday June 30th.

Pluckers are needed. Litter plucked trash will be accepted for FREE at County operated Transfer Stations. Each volunteer will be supplied with collection bags and stickers from the Town.

You should get yourself one of them grabbers, it beats bending over every 5 feet. Anyone interested should keep an eye out for more information posted on the town website www.townofcochectonny.org. You can also give Supervisor, Gary Maas, a call at (845) 932-8360 ext. 15.

You can also call Sullivan County Parks, Recreation & Beautification Department at SCParks@co.sullivanny.us or call (845) 807-0287. I think I heard that clean-up-day will be some time in June, I will check into that and let you know for sure.

Cochecton Youth Commission is really trying to keep the kids busy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Follow them on Facebook for upcoming events.

2021 tax season is over. If you were not able to pay your taxes before March 31, you are going to have to wait till the county starts to collect.

Please keep the family of Barbara Bellouny in your thoughts and prayers as she passed away.

Have a great week, you can e-mail me at leeniebeans@citlink.net or call (845) 252-3568.
