CORNWALL — Early in the telecommunications forum that drew 75 area residents to Cornwall Town Hall on Thursday, July 11, it was announced that a number of microcell units have been attached to utility poles in town without required notice to the town.

First Selectman Gordon Ridgway said the town is working on finding out to whom the microcells belong and what company they are connected to, or who installed them.

CORNWALL — “Mom, could you get open?”
Not something you usually hear in a basketball game. But at Cornwall Consolidated School (CCS) Feb. 13, it was the middle school girls’ basketball team against “the parents” — a loosely contrived group that also included some current students, a former student and school Principal Michael Croft (who turned out to be a ringer).
After more than an hour of grueling play, it was 39-36, students. It was a hard-fought battle.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Staying safe and maintaining a backup power supply are priorities in a prolonged emergency situation.
So is eating.

Tiny dancers have big fun at contra dance

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — On the first Saturday evening of each month, a crowd — sometimes large, sometimes small — gathers at Town Hall. No matter who or how many show up, they manage to have a grand time contra dancing.
This past Saturday, the crowd was large, but the people were small, on average. It was the first Little Kids/Big Kids dance. Caller Tom Hanford, from Goshen, led about 75 children and parents in dances and dance games. It was followed by a potluck supper and the regular Family Contra Dance.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — It’s been about 40 years since the Town Hall vault walls have been painted. Behind the shelves there are patches of bare cement block. What was painted is now peeling badly. The cement floor could use work, too.
Town Clerk Vera Dinneen’s original plan was to do the work herself, maybe with a little volunteer help, over a weekend. She envisioned a much brighter atmosphere, with light from the old fluorescents reflecting off glossy white paint.
