Dot on Roxbury

by Dotty Taphouse

Julia Frances Schreiner, daughter of Luke and Carol (Ryan) Schreiner, was baptized on Sunday, May 16, 1999 at St. Thomas More’s Church. The delighted godparents were Ricky Ryan and Brook Mannley. Grandma Julie Ryan also enjoyed the happy occasion with family and friends. A christening party was held in the Rockaway Point Catholic Club. The delicious food and drinks were great and there was a magician to entertain the children.

Marilyn and Gordon Griffin of Roxbury celebrated their 40 wedding anniversary of April 25 on May 15, 1999 in Father Hession hall. Gloria Ryan (Marilyn’s sister), who was her maid of honor, and Eileen Seymour, who was a bridesmaid, attended the party with many friends and family. The delicious food was catered by Donald Feimer of Classic Cuisine and Roxbury Barn II. Jamie Devour was the D.J. who played the music for the celebration. Marie O’Neill of Rockaway Point was treated to a lovely evening out for her birthday of May 7. Five of her granddaughters took her to Lundy’s in Sheepshead Bay (girls night out). Food and refreshments were great. An old fashioned get together with many fond memories of good old Brooklyn, same time, same place next year!

Congratulations to Emily Arikian, David Barile, Meghan Dengler, Franklyn Monahan, and Michelle Trahey, who received First Holy Communion in St. Genevieve’s Church on Saturday, May 15, 1999.

A surprise bridal shower was held on May 15 at a firehouse in Baldwin for Dana Monahan. She was very surprised and received many beautiful gifts. Dana is the daughter of Kathy and Bob Monahan and will wed Joe Henry, son of Gloria Henry (all from Roxbury), on October 16, 1999 at St. Christopher’s Church, reception to follow at Crest Hollow Inn.

Surprise baby shower was held at the Bozo Club in Roxbury for Kathleen McEnroe having many lovely baby gifts as well as drinks and food. It was given by their families. Kathleen and Mackie McEnroe expect their new bundle of joy in mid-August.
