Happy birthday to Pat Coffey, a waitress and friend at Greg’s Dinner.

Congratulations to Matilda Fenchak, who bowled 211 at Whitestone Lanes.

Girl Scout Sunday was celebrated at the First Reformed Church of College Point, with Eva Hrastnig-Mieras, delegate of N.Q. III Service Unit. They celebrated the 91st anniversary of Girl Scouting in this country due to the efforts of founder Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low.

Girl Scouts have been meeting in this church since 1933. There are 45 troops and 715 Girl Scouts. If and when service unit members achieve their goals, they receive the President’s Award at the council’s annual meeting the following year in May. This service unit was awarded this honor for the years 1997, 1998 and 1999-2000.

Junior Troop 4046 leaders are Dorothy Schneider, co-leader Lois Demonte.

Cadette Troop 4946 leaders are Denise Fox, co-leader Dorothy Schneider.

Daisy Troop 4-574, formerly at First Reformed Church, still has two honorary Daisies — Betty Pegen and me. I did sing the Daisy Song. A bake sale will be held at the First Reformed Church, 118-01 14th Ave. on March 30, at 11 a.m. in the chapel. There will be treats and goodies for everyone’s taste.

April 2 look for the Spring Luncheon at the First Reformed Church, which will feature lots of goodies.

Sabina says…Thank goodness the sun arrived for a little while. Spring is around the corner and we must get ready for St. Patrick’s Day.
