CORNWALL — Three bids for school projects were approved by the Board of Education Oct. 18.
Repairs to leaky portions of the Cornwall Consolidated School roof will be done by Ralph Dzenutis of Royal Construction of Cornwall for $17,650.
Perotti Plumbing, based in North Canaan, was approved to be paid up to $5,000 to install a 30-gallon water heater to meet everyday needs. The school is currently using a 400-gallon tank necessary as part of the school’s designation as an emergency shelter. That can be held in reserve, and heated by generator, if needed, when demand requires it.

karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — It’s been a year since the town loaned about $50,000 toward the demolition of Rumsey Hall in the village.
The former school building had been condemned, but owner Andrew Hingson could not afford to pay to comply with the building official’s order to have the crumbling structure torn down.
Town officials agreed to provide a loan, at 18 percent, on the condition that mortgage holder JP Morgan Chase would guarantee repayment. Despite repeated promises of a pending payment, the check is not yet in the mail.

CCS walkathon 2011

Walking for a cure for MS
karenb@lakevillejournal.com

CORNWALL — Students at Cornwall Consolidated School saw the democratic process in action as they voted on who will be the recipients of funds raised at the walkathon, planned for Oct. 14.
The annual fundraiser has become a highly successful way for students to raise money toward their eighth-grade class trip. And some money is always given to deserving organizations within the community and beyond.
The walkathon was started nine years ago as a way to eliminate the succession of fundraisers needed to fund the trip, which was often a tedious, time-consuming approach.
