Calverton News: One last chance to see Godspell

Well, I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. We had a great time with the kids. They make any holiday perfect, and this one was no exception. From the basket blessing at St. Isidore to the egg hunt at the Peconic River Herb Farm and the Easter parade in Port Jeff, we were all tired and very content. 

Did you miss RFCT’s production of “Godspell”? Guess what? For the third time, this awesome cast will amaze you, this time on Friday, April 10, and Sunday, April 12, at Mattituck Presbyterian Church as a fundraiser for the church’s 300th anniversary. Tickets are $20 or $15 for seniors and students. Call 298-4145 for more information.

Don’t forget the Riverhead Move the Animal Shelter car show and yard sale this Sunday at Splish Splash. Lots of fun stuff, and it all benefits a great cause.

And our friends at Kent Animal Shelter are holding a benefit for their homeless pets on Friday, April 24, from 7 to 11 p.m. at Hotel Indigo in Riverhead. An evening of comedy awaits us, complete with hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, chinese auction, pet boutique, scavenger hunt, 50/50 and adoptable pets! Tickets are $30, $35 at the door. For more information call 727-5731. Go, have fun, save pets!

The Riverhead High School NJROTC is holding its sixth annual chinese auction Saturday, April 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. Stop by and have some fun while helping our awesome cadets.

Happy birthday to Rowland Hautsch, who celebrated on March 31, with love from your wife, Patti, your daughter, Jessica, and all who know and love you! To Bill Kappenberg who celebrated on April 2, I hope your day was perfect, with lots of love from Gail and your awesome family and friends, happy birthday to you!

Heaven has a few new angels. Jim Hogan, a lifelong friend, left us recently. We all had so many memories together with our funny, kind, helpful friend. My love to your family, Jimmy. And Ex Jackson, who was like my second dad, I treasure our times together; you were such a joy to me. I enjoyed hearing you and my dad tell tales of the “old” days on the bays. God bless; I love you.

And that is all for this week. Take care, be safe, and I shall talk to you soon. Bye.
