Calverton: Riley Avenue food drive a big success

11/21/2010 5:33 PM |

The Thanksgiving food drive at Riley Avenue Elementary School was a tremendous success! Many items were donated and will be put into baskets for local needy families. Thanks to those who helped out. Also, the school wishes to thank Diana from Windy Acres Farm for donating fresh veggies to this wonderful cause.

Kindergarten students were busy visiting Riverhead Free Library this past week. Second-graders were busy at the Southold Indian Museum, where they learned a great deal about Native Americans. Parents enjoyed a Thanksgiving play presented by Mrs. Stears and her students last week. All had a great time. Mrs. Kent and Mrs. Messina’s classes enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving feast, complete with turkey and all the trimmings. Remember, school is closed until Monday, Nov. 29. Enjoy!

Baiting Hollow Congregational Church will be holding a “greens” sale on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church on Sound Avenue. Available for purchase will be fresh evergreens and wreaths, table decorations, baskets and many items at its white elephant table. Do stop by and get yourself some nice fresh greens for the Christmas season.

A very happy, wonderful Thanksgiving to each of you. May your day be filled with happiness, good company, food and football (GO JETS!). Please phone or visit someone who would love to have a little company. ‘Tis the season for giving and it takes so little to make someone feel special.

Take care, be safe, and I shall talk to you next week. Bye.

  • As well you should …Prodell needs a bulldozer.

    We were considering moving there but due to the complete stupidity illustrated in this questionaire , were going to MP or RP.

    14k for a crappy HiRanch.
    No thanks.

    When you guys figure out how to pay for your schools by building nothing…let us know.

    As for RP, it wasnt built so I guess no one came.

  • I did not receive a surevy either. I think I took a survey online (possibly through facebook?), but never received anything in the mail.

    I agree 100% with “concerned resident” – we need to generate some revenue. We need to stop arguring and complaining and figure it out. This town is filled with some very smart and creative people – this shouldn’t be so hard. I do believe that if we do not do something in the very near future, we will all be very sorry.
    I hate the fact that other than a quick bagel or gallon of milk, I spend so much $$ in our neighboring towns and their towns/schools benefit from my $. I don’t have any perfect answers but I am very
    open-minded and feel that we can come up with a good solution that will benefit everyone.
