Some of you may have received our President's email about the approval of the sterile grass carp application. In case you didn't see it. Here it is:
Dear LOCA Membership:
We are very pleased to inform you that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has approved the Lake Oscawana Carp Application! On July 15th the Putnam Valley Town Board agreed to start the RFP (request for proposal) process for the two containment fences that need to be built before the Carp are introduced into the lake. If all goes smoothly, we hope to have the Carp in the lake by the Fall of this year.
We are greatly appreciative of the many years of effort provided by Steve Axinn (former LOCA President and member of the Board) and Supervisor Bob Tendy who closely monitored and diligently pursued the application process that began over three years ago.
Please be sure to join us for the LOCA Membership Meeting on August 30th at 11:00 a.m. at the Fire House Meeting Room for more information and details about the introduction of Carp into Lake Oscawana
In the meantime, we hope you are enjoying the beautiful summer at the lake.
Rick Leone, President

Temple Israel of Putnam Valley (Lake Drive, Lake Peekskill) is inaugurating a new program of “synagogue skills” learning. Rather than conduct a normal Shabbat service, we will be gathering together to study and learn for an hour or so. What we hope to do is to explore, in a relaxed and informal format, a series of key prayers and rituals that take place in synagogues around the world during Shabbat services. Our hope is that those who attend will find that they will become more comfortable with the content of the service.
This program is especially designed for anyone who is interested in learning more about what all these prayers and rituals mean but was afraid to ask!
EVERYONE IS CORDIALLY INVITED.
These informal “shul” sessions will take place on the
2nd & 4th Shabbat each month until further notice.
Regular Shabbat Services are held the 1st & 3rd Saturday each month at 9:30 am
