Calverton News: Celebrate Mother’s Day at Polish Hall

It feels good out there! Local asparagus is everywhere and many more local veggies will follow. Also, the strawberries are blooming!

I have a great event for you and mom. Riverhead Polish Hall will host its annual Mother’s Day breakfast this Sunday, May 10, from 8 a.m. to noon. Cost: $12 for adults, $6 for kids under 12. You will surely enjoy all the offerings — bacon, kielbasa, fruit salad, pancakes and so much more. Reservations are recommended. Call 727-9200. Many people attend this event and you should too!

Kent Animal Shelter’s fundraiser “Laughter Saves Lives” was a huge success. The event raised $9,000 to help homeless pets at Kent. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The winners of Riley Avenue Elementary School’s science fair are: kindergarten, Logan Levesque; second grade, Mark Burns; third grade, Abigail Maher; and fourth grade, Liam Levesque (Logan’s brother). The winners will now enter their experiments in Brookhaven National Lab’s annual science fair. Congratulations and good luck!

Happy birthday to Calverton mail carrier Karen Notaro, who celebrated on May 2. Much love to you, Karen! Bradley Ceberek, who shares a birthday the same day, turned 3 and celebrated with a big party on Sunday. From all your family and friends, Bradley, we hope you had a lot of fun!

Congratulations to Ed Matyka, who not only has 100 wins in Riverhead High School wrestling, but is the first All-American wrestler in RHS history. Thanks for making us proud, Ed. Great job!

Those stinking mosquitoes are back. Here are a few tips to keep them from breeding in your yard: Change your birdbath water as much as possible. Stagnate water is the perfect breeding place for these monsters. Also, any pails, buckets or flowerpots with saucers that hold water should be emptied frequently. Good luck.

Happy Mother’s Day! May it be a warm, sunny day filled with love!

Take care, be safe, and I shall talk to you next time. Bye.
