North Shore United Methodist Church on Route 25A in Wading River has some news to share. The church has welcomed a new pastor to guide their congregation, the Rev. Hal Low. Welcome! Also, the church’s thrift shop has a new and improved sign that now displays its hours of operation. According to NSUMC’s recently updated website (northshoreumc.org): “The old sandwich board has served its purpose and has now been retired with honor.”
Linda Winter, of Bagel Lady Cafe, hosts an annual “Get Your Pink On Gala” to support the Long Island 2 Day Walk to Fight Breast Cancer. Her most recent event at Shoreham Country Club was not only tremendous fun, it raised $17,800. You can still help Linda reach her goal for 2015 ($18,000) by making a contribution to the large jar by the cash register at Sassy Salads & Bagels in the Shoreham Plaza on Route 25A or by handing her a check. Good luck in reaching your goal and God bless you, Linda. (more…)

You’ll have to forgive Al Amore if he doesn’t remember the newspaper article he just read.
The title of the movie he just saw or the score of the game, well, he probably can’t recall those either.
But say you found yourself in his barber chair, chatting nervously about your brother’s wedding to come later that day — well don’t be surprised if weeks later he asks you how the toast went. (more…)
Bringing in the potted flowers at dusk had always been the routine for the community, but now that it’s May the plantings can stay out all night.
The plantings at the 9/11 memorial at Shoreham Fire Company No. 3 are beautiful. The yellows and purples next to the walkway really catch your eye. If you haven’t visited you may drop by at any time. Questions about donations? Call 744-7155 or write to RPFD Memorial Fund Inc., P.O. Box 702, Shoreham, NY 11786. (more…)

Thank you, Laura LaSita of Wading River for the “Get Well” card and phone calls that keep me company as I heal from major surgery. There’s nothing in the universe like love.
