Calverton: Coming up at Riley

04/19/2011 5:33 AM |

Happy Passover to all who are celebrating. I hope it is a truly wonderful time for each and every one of you. And to our Easter friends, may this be a very wonderful day for each and everyone of you as well. May your day be filled with fun, family, friends, flowers and food. Hey, that’s a pretty cool wish, right? All those words start with the letter “f”. Sometimes I amaze myself. Enjoy!

The first-ever John C. Mendreski Memorial Golf Outing will be held at The Woods at Cherry Creek on June 27. Stay tuned for more information, but go ahead and pencil in this event on your calendar.

PLECO, the Peconic Lakes Estates Community, will hold its first meeting at a scholarship fund spaghetti dinner on Saturday, April 30, at the clubhouse. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under age 12. All members are asked to attend.

Baiting Hollow Congregational Church will hold its annual yard sale on Saturday, May 7. Included will be more than 50 vendors selling antiques, clothing, housewares, baked goods and more. The rain date will be May 14 — but of course it won’t rain, we won’t let it! If you would like more information, call 258-8881 and all your questions will be answered.

Belated happy 18th birthday to Calverton resident Jeremy Imberger, who celebrated April 13, from your mom and dad, Bianca and all your family and friends. We hope you had a perfect day, Jeremy.

As I mentioned last week, Riley Avenue Elementary School is closed this week for spring break, but there are upcoming events planned that you might like to know about. Those wonderful Riverhead Fire Department volunteers will be at Riley April 26 through May 2 to present their very important fire safety program, which teaches the students what to do in the event of a fire in their home. The ELA assessment tests will take place May 3-6, and Art in Action takes place on May 6 at Riverhead High School beginning at 7 p.m. When I tell you there are some amazing artists in our school district, I speak the truth. Consider going, you’ll be in awe.

I hope you’re eating your honey, especially now that allergy season is upon us. If you suffer from outdoor allergies (trees, grasses, etc.) find some local honey and eat at least one teaspoon of it a day. It will help ease the sneezes that make you miserable. Don’t buy honey from out of state, as it contains different flowers and trees that we might not have and will not really help.

Have a great week, be safe and I shall talk to you next time. Bye.
