NORTH SALEM, N.Y. - Every night at 6 p.m. Helen Vail sets out in her kayak with the volume turned up on her speakers to fill the lake with music.

The tight-knit Vail's Grove community is invited to join Vail either on the lake or, at 7 p.m., by clapping, banging pots and pans, playing the drums, etc. to honor the hospital workers and all essential workers.
