I recently heard from one of my favorite local contacts — Jasmine Corwin. Jasmine and her girls would like to wish husband and Dad, Blake, a very happy 31st birthday Saturday, May 21. Mom and Dad also wish a very happy birthday to their smart and sassy daughter Lila, who will turn 4 on May 31. As a special gift to Blake and Lila, a new baby girl is due to be born on the 25th. Their little family is growing in leaps and bounds. Happy birthday and congratulations to all of you!

A stylishly smooth gentleman caught my eye recently, rolling by my line of vision at Shoreham Plaza. I caught up with Robbie Musiello, a SWR high school graduate (Class of 2013), who was skateboarding. I had commented that I regretted not learning to skateboard because I thought it was “a really cool way to roll.” Robbie agreed, saying it was his mode of transportation of choice. He’s good at it, too! He was traveling fast and even threw in a trick or two. It was nice meeting you, Robbie. Let us know all the places your skateboarding adventures take you. Safe journeys to you!

The staff at Wading River Deli wishes good luck to all the students playing spring sports! (more…)

Truth Community ChurchHello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

I would like to congratulate Amy Wesolowski and John Perkowski on the birth of their beautiful daughter, Kinley Ann Perkowski, on April 15. She weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces, and was 17 3/4 inches long. The whole family is new to our community, so a big welcome to all.

Happy May, one and all! It really kind of feels like March but I guess it’ll get warm soon. To get you in the mood for spring, Baiting Hollow Congregational Church will hold its annual yard sale Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. With 50-plus vendors I’m sure there will be something for everyone. In the event of rain, the event will be held May 14.
