To The Point: Community help sought in fight against stickers

Welcome to the Point. The Point being College Point. The calendar, TV and radio say it is spring but the birds are still wearing mufflers and earmuffs and the daffodils refuse to blossom in all their golden glory.

The College Point Security Patrol is working in cooperation with the city Health Department and Dr. Miller. If you see any dead birds, please pick them up with a gloved hand and put them into a bag. If you see any stagnant water in pools that may be breeding mosquitoes, call 886-0938.

The security patrol is also working with the 109th Precinct and Deputy Inspector James Waters with regard to the hate stickers. None of our members has found any of these stickers in College Point and local residents do not want their community even mentioned in connection with them. If anybody sees even one of them, please call the 109th Precinct immediately at 321-2250.

Best wishes to Debbie Lorenz, daughter of Joyce and Archie Lorenz, and Joseph Donero, son of Meryl and Francis Donero, as they are joined in holy wedlock on April 15.

Happy birthday to Rickey Anne Tuttle on March 18 and to Brian Pupplo on March 14.

Speedy recovery to Jaime Loeb and Laraine Memola.

Belated birthday wishes to two very special friends, Cathleen Shannon and Helen Ann Lindenberg. I have watched these two beautiful ladies grow up before my eyes.

Danny Pupplo is in rehearsal with his band Seditions for some coming engagements.

Congratulations to Martha VonWieding on the birth of her great-granddaughter Sarah Elaine Dill, born on March 7.

Congratulations to Michael Palma who was elected president of the student government of Fordham University at Rose Hill.

Congratulations to Maureen Napolitano who bowled 200 and Paula Palma who bowled 207 at Whitestone Lanes. I now have a complete team with Carmela Lisi joining Martha and me. If she bowls as good as her sister Josephine, we will be pushing to the top.

Pastor William Cameron, his wife Nancy and family just beamed at the wonderful retirement dinner at Grand Bay Marina. The evening was quite picturesque with a full moon and all of the lights of the New York skyline shining on the water.

State Sen. Frank Padavan (R-Bellerose) and Assemblywoman Nettie Mayersohn (D-Flushing) read the state proclamations with which he was awarded and gifts were presented from the congregation. Pastor Hamilton and Pastor Gillespie spoke for their respective churches, St. Paul and St. John.

Rocco Cardali, grand knight of the St. Ambrose Council, presented Cameron with a certificate of appreciation for all his work and I as president of the College Point Civic/Taxpayers Assn. presented him with a plaque.

We wish Pastor Cameron every good wish for a long and happy life and if he gets bored with all the leisure time, the white doors of the First Reformed Church will swing open to welcome him back for he has touched each and every heart with which he has come in contact.

St. Anne
