SABINA SAYS: St. Valentine’s Day was a beautiful celebration at Caffe on the Green and I wanted to stay there and wait for the next year’s day of the boy with the golden arrows. February has been a big birthday month: Eric McIntyre, Paul McIntyre, Connie Bonanno, Laraine Memola, May Pidgeon, Terrence King, Gabriela Gennario and Rocky the Canine. My Grandson Brian read the birthday cards to Rocky the canine. Rocky barked in delight and couldn’t wait to eat his birthday treats.
