Lake Huntington - May 11

Posted

Hello and hope you are all doing well. When I was on Facebook I saw a post from Brian Heinle which said on behalf of the membership of the Lake Huntington Fire Company, and one very proud father Brian Heinle.

Brian is pleased to announce their newest member, his daughter Mya Heinle. Brian is the vice chair of the board of fire commissioners for the Cochecton Fire District and has been a member for the last 6 years.

Mya is a junior member and they are looking for members ages 14 years or older and living in the Cochecton Fire District. Anyone interested stop by the Lake Huntington Fire House on Monday nights 7 p.m.

When I asked Brian if it was O.K. to put this in the Lake Huntington News, he said yes and told me to listen to his interview on WJFF with Donna Fellenberg on May 1st. So I listened, it was really interesting.

Brian told how the Heinle's came to Cochecton in the early 1800 from Germany. How the family started Heinle's General Store and their motto was “If we don't have it you do not need it”. I remember one time I went to Heinle's on my way to Kmart to get my husband shoe laces for his boots, Doug said I have them right here. I used to ask him for things just to see if he had them.

Brian talked about growing up with his parents and grandparents and learning the importance of being a part of your community. “You make what your community is”, “when you see a cause be the effect” great words to go by. I know Doug Heinle is smiling down on all of you and is very proud; Doug was a member of the Narrowsburg and Lave Fire House for many years, along with many other originations. When I first moved up to Cochecton there was a man named Herman Heinle and he tried to get me to eat turtle soup. They called him the turtle man. He never did get me to eat that soup.

Cochecton Youth Commission's next trip is to Claws “n” Paws Wild Animal Park on Sunday, June 6, 2021. Sign ups will be held at the Cochecton Town Hall on Tuesday, June 1st from 6:30-7 p.m. As always, free to Cochecton youth! Adults and out-of-town participants will pay at the door of the zoo.

Mike from American Electric says, “THE COMEBACK IS ALWAYS GREATER THAN THE SET BACK. Our new building is in progress. It has been 6 long months since a fire ripped through our old shop. Here's to new beginnings, looking forward to the new building. Our business is still going strong. Give us a call at (845) 932-8111.”

Have a great week. Email me if you have any news that you want to get out there at leeniebeans@citlink.net.
