Calverton: Baiting Hollow and Polish Hall events

Happy 2011! I hope everyone had a nice holiday. We can now settle into the new year, complete with snow. I’m loving it! Every snowflake brings a smile to my face. I’m sure there’s quite a few of you who think otherwise and can’t wait to wear flip-flops again.

Well, it’s back to school. I will have some details about the goings-on at Riley Avenue Elementary School in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned.

Baiting Hollow Congregational Church will be holding its annual spaghetti dinner on Saturday, Jan. 22, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. with continuous servings. Tickets are $9 for adults and $5 for children under 10 and can be purchased from any church member or by calling Linda at 369-0307. Tickets for a handmade, completely furnished dollhouse, to be raffled off in the spring, will also be for sale. Do come enjoy a night of no cooking.

Also on the 22nd, head on over to the Polish Hall on Marcy Avenue in Riverhead for a night of fun and dancing. The third annual “Rockin for the Homeless,” to benefit Maureen’s Haven, will take place at 7 p.m. See Coming Up section for details.

A very happy birthday to my dad, Paul Troyan, who will celebrate on Jan. 15. From all of us, Poppie, we love you lots and hope you have a nice, warm birthday full of fun and with no shoveling. Happy birthday also this week to my nephew Gary Pelis. I hope you have a great day, Gary. Best wishes from all your family and friends.

Congratulations to all us Jets fans! We just might get our wish — a trip to the Super Bowl! If not, let’s bask in the glory of how far we’ve come this year. But I do so want a Super Bowl win. Good luck to us all!

That’s all for this week. Take care, be safe and I shall talk to you next time. Bye.
