Welcome to the Point. The Point being College Point.

It’s Ground Hog Day when the correct weather report takes place. Of course, there is Flushing Phil, Corona Kate and Punxsutawney Phil peeking out of their hovels with scarves waiting to see their shadow. Winter may be staying a little longer.

Congratulations to Tracy Pavon on bowling 221 at the Whitestone Lanes.

Also at Whitestone Lanes were several members bowling from the Association for the Advancement of Blind and Retarded. Also present was Bernadette LaMagna, director of development and public relations.

She is looking for volunteers to work in the Thrift Shop, open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shop is a means of funding for her group. If you would like to volunteer, call Bernadette LaMagna at 321-3800.

Speedy recovery to Judy Smith, to Nori Higuchi and to Joe Facchin.

Condolences to the Bitterman family, and to the family of Luban Zilucci.

Happy Birthday to Terrence King, to Ashley O’Leary, and to Jennifer Shannon.

Happy Birthday to May Pidgeon, and to Laraine Memola.

Happy Birthday to Eric McIntyre, and Paul McIntyre.

Congratulations to the Gersh family on the birth of their daughter Deborah and to aspiring Councilwoman Joyce Shepherd and Keith on their new granddaughter.

St. Paul’s children are holding a fund-raiser Bowlathon at Whitestone Lanes for Tuller Hall on March 3. Sponsors are needed. Please call St. Paul’s at 762-4100.

Some 500 people were very attentive when Borough President Claire Shulman gave her State of the Borough address at Queens Theatre in the Park.

The 109 Precinct hosted a community outreach meeting on Jan. 29 and will host another one Feb. 15. At this meeting, the community will have the chance to bring concerns to representatives of the 109 precinct as well as other city agencies and elected officials. The meeting will be at IS 237 at 46-21 Colden St. at 7:30 p.m.

Vehicle Identification Number etching will be offered by the Police Department on Feb. 10 on Barclay and Union Street. Adrian Joyce and Crime Prevention Officer Henry Sookhu will preside over this. The number is etched onto a glass part, deterring theft and making it easier to trace the vehicle if it is stolen.

The College Point Community Volunteer Ambulance Corps needs you to help them to help you. The Corps was founded in 1941 by College Point residents who were concerned about ambulance service in the community. They were the first volunteer squad in the city and second in the state.. This dedicated group of volunteers serve the College Point community as dispatchers, drivers, attendants.. They are certified by the state Health Department as a Basic Life Support ambulance service, responding to calls and providing the same level of care as that of city Fire Department’s BLS units. There is no charge for their service. They respond to calls in a modern, fully equipped ambulance staffed by state-certified Emergency Medical Technicians. They lend wheelchairs, walkers, crutches and canes free of charge to the College Point community. They sponsor blood drives, so you can donate at their building. Free blood pressure screening is available to the community. They are looking for community minded residents over the age of 18 to serve the Corps in all capacities. Duty time is performed in their building and they currently require 10 hours a week, flexible.

Animal Tales and Dinosaur Scales will be performed on March 24 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Queens Theatre In The Park. Call 760-0064 for tickets.

SABINA SAYS: Your children are your No. 1 priority. Make sure that your elected officials know your community’s need for schools and recreation activities.
