Dot On Roxbury

by Dotty Taphouse

Brandonn Taphouse, son of Tania and Glen Taphouse and brother of Breana, celebrated his first birthday of May 26, 1999 on May 30, 1999 on Ann Marie (godmother) and Peter Geis’s porch in Roxbury. The delicious food, refreshments and cake were great. Brandonn received many lovely gifts and the porch and house were packed with families and friends plus the "Yikes" softball team and seven beautiful babies under the age of two. A very nice party.

Breezy Point Golden Age Travel Club had a bus trip to New York on Wednesday, May 23 but the bus didn’t arrive on time. I ran the trip so I contacted the bus company who had merged with another bus company and got their messages fouled up. Finally, after over an hour wait, the bus arrived. We made the city in time to get tickets for shows and have a fast lunch. Our group saw "The Phantom of the Opera", a good play but words were hard to understand in some of the songs. We enjoyed dinner at Ellen’s Stardust Diner and it was crowded. Another day that turned O.K.

Larry Lee chairman and his committee in charge of the Veteran’s Memorial Monument of the John McLoughlin Post 8540 in Roxbury did a fabulous job! It’s beautiful. On Veteran’s Day a mass was said for living and deceased veterans at St. Genevieve’s. They paraded over to the monument for a tribute to the veterans. Father Jack Collinane gave the invocation. Many officers called on representatives of each club to place flowered wreaths in the veteran’s honor and memory by the monument. After the beautiful ceremony there was a parade to the Roxbury Volunteer Fire House where hot dogs and beverages were served.

St. Genevieve’s will have a night at the races in Father Hession hall on Saturday, June 19 at 8 p.m., cost $10 for food and beverages. Don Hurley will be the emcee. Please join the fun and support the parish.

Love ya, Dot.
