Welcome to the Point. The Point being College Point.

I hope just about everyone enjoyed all that wonderful Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings with your loved ones.

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my husband Rocky, my mother, daughter Angela, son-in-law Paul and grandsons Eric and Brian, and Rocky, the canine.

What a wonderful surprise; there is now a canine named for me. Sabina is a mixed breed sharpei and German shepherd. Thank goodness her wrinkles are around her neck. We now have a Sabina and Rocky in the canine world.

A very happy birthday to Pastor William Cameron. Of course, the best present of all was a new grandson named Brandon. Congratulations to the new parents Doreen and Michael and of course to Grandma Nancy.

Condolences to the family of Pastor Peter Seeger, former pastor of St. Fidelis.

Congratulations to the entire CYO Track Team. A successful cross country season culminated with two divisions bringing home team trophies.

The Bantam Girls Division (9 and 10-year-olds) led by Laurie Ann Wick, and which included Samantha Buckley, Sharon Mook, Emily Boudiette, AnnaMarie DiPinto and Kristen Lizzotte, placed third in the Diocese, running a three-quarter-mile race.

The Novice Boys Division (7-8 year-olds) running a half-mile, placed fourth in Queens. They were led by Andrew Mulvey and included George Adams, Peter Kramer, Steven Lizzotte, James Murphy, Chris Baunach and Danny Murphy.

A special thanks to all who support the track team, especially John Mulvey and Zachery Kramer, who continue to keep the stats and assist when necessary. The Tornadoes are successfully coached by John Kramer.

It was smooth flying on National Airlines and the flight attendants were so cordial and helpful. The Grand Canyon was a great site to behold aloft. It was certainly perfection from the maker.

It sure was wonderful watching soccer when your grandson Brian plays on his team, the Cougars. This was the last game of the season.

And of course, a pizza party followed with the laughter of all the players and the expectations for the coming season. Following was the soccer game of grandson Eric on his team, the Goal Getters. This also was followed with a pizza party at the Desert Breeze Community Center at Spring Mountain. The Desert Breeze Community Center was a wonderful addition to the area, as it features dancing, creative movement, arts and crafts, martial arts, special interest, and sports such as gymnastics, coed volleyball, men
