— Concluding the board meeting, Jane LeCount suggested that senior housing be developed on hillside property behind Holy Cross Episcopal Church. Resident Ruth Fruda, however, noted that while such a development might be scenic, it would be handier for seniors to walk to downtown businesses if such apartments were built in the hamlet, rather than on a hillside.

At this point, Steve Parisi stood up and noted that LeCount, who is in her eighties and now officially retiring from real estate sales — had been the co-founder of the World’s Largest Garage Sale, which started as a small fest and now commands nationwide fame. The audience responded with a round of applause for LeCount.
