Welcome to the Point. The Point being College Point.

We attended the Clown Workshop at the Poppenhusen Institute, 114-04 Road, College Point for ages 6-12 and the children had a great time. The theme was “Clowning around with the seasons.” Laine Barton, who has performed with the Big Apple Circus, taught the children how to do juggling, mime and how to make the audience laugh and of course having fun themselves.

On Aug. 10 after some additional instruction, they will perform for their parents. I am sure the parents will totally enjoy by the antics.

There will be another park concert at MacNeil Park, 5th Avenue and College Place, College Point on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 6 p.m.. The American Concert Band is a 35-member band performing show tunes and classical pieces. Conductor is Dr. Kirby Jolly. The performance is sponsored by the Flushing Council on the Arts with special support by Poppenhusen Institute and Councilman Mike Abel. Rain site: Poppenhusen Institute, 114-04 Road, College Point. 718-358-0067. Space is limited.

There’s still limited space available at the Summer Day Camp at St. Fidelis. The Sensational Kids Program includes sports, games, arts and crafts and trips for children age 3-14. Camp hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Aug. 24. 386-1962.

Country line dancing classes at Poppenhusen Institute. For exercise, fellowship and fun: Mondays, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. $5. Intermediate 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. $6. Free open house ñ Monday, Sept. 10, 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Regular classes for Mommy and Me and Playgroup begin Sept. 10. The new coordinators and the new director for both programs is Claudine Scheu. These programs are at the First Reformed church in College Point. The New York City Summer Reading Program is in session. Call your local library, Poppenhusen 121-23 14 Avenue, 359-1102 for the schedule. Condolences to the family of Carol Montagna.

The Aug. 8 Ice Cream Social/Dog Show at the First Reformed Church was a great way to spend a Wednesday evening. Judges had to chose the largest dog, smallest dog, best dressed dog and most obedient. Sundaes and root beer floats were everywhere.

SABINA SAYS...

It was wonderful seeing Rev. William Cameron, who served the First Reformed Church for almost 20 years, visit and do the service while Rev. Carl Rosenblum was on vacation.
