Greetings… I wonder if all of you are feeling like I am right now, namely, enough of this winter stuff. Lets move on to Spring.!
Our guest speakers last month talked about Crime Prevention, volunteer activities / community service activities for high school students and the various offerings under the Medicare programs. They were full of information and ideas for us.
Our guest speakers this month will be from the American Heart Society and I expect they will focus on our hearts. Our other guest speaker will be from the 122 Precinct’s Community Affairs Division and they will provide us with an update on the burglaries which have been occurring in the Grant City – New Dorp area. You won’t want to miss either presentation.
Next month we will hear from a person who is interested in opening a Comedy Club in the Lane Theatre. Plan now on attending and bringing your neighbors and friends. It is a chance for you to get answers to your questions and make your views known.
And in May we will have a special guest who will provide us with a history of the New Dorp Beach area.
So start marking your calendars now and plan to be at our meetings so you can hear these presentations and get your questions answered.
I asked you last month: What will you do to strengthen this organization and make its voice more robust? Share your ideas and thoughts with us.
Lastly, we will resume our Dining Through New Dorp program on March 24 with a visit to King’s Chef. It will be our 46th meal in support of our neighborhood restaurants and good conversation. Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will save you a seat.
We meet monthly on the third Thursday of each month. Our meeting this month is Thursday, March 19, 2009 at the Kells-Grennie American Legion Post at 2750 Amboy Road. We will begin promptly at 8 p.m. Come. Join us. And… bring a neighbor!
See you around the neighborhood, stay safe and enjoy each day!
