Chatting With Chapey

by Dr. Geraldine M. Chapey

Celebrating the Significant Achievements of Women on the Move.

St. Joseph's College of Brooklyn and Patchogue is hosting a dinner
at the Atlantic Beach Club on Friday evening, September 10 at 7 p.m. Sr.
Elizabeth Hill, the energetic, talented and innovative President of St.
Joseph's College will join the festivities and share an update on the
exciting happenings at the college.

Margaret Dwyer Minson, the Director of the Alumnae Office of St.
Joseph's College, is a glamorous and indefatigable leader who initiates so
many interesting and forward looking programs. Margaret grew up in our community and has strong ties to it. St. Joseph's College graduates have had and continue to have a
significant positive impact on New York City's economy. Many of the
graduates have assumed leadership positions as teachers and administrators in our educational
system. Their strong concern for the physical, intellectual, emotional and
social well being of our youngsters has produced notable results.

If you would like to join the fun and festivities on September 10, send a check for twenty-five dollars to the dynamic chair, Ellen Ferrentino Gray at 149 Beach 133 street. Sponsors of the event include Ellen Gray, Peg Keating and Dr. Geraldine Chapey. Another outstanding wo-man on the move is Binky Glennon. Binky is an excellent professional who capably balances the dual responsibilities of motherhood and a job. Her effervescent spirit and lively personality are part of her secret to success. Binky cares about her community. She is a woman of varied interests. Last weekend she was a participant in the Avon Breast Cancer Research Walk, to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. The trail began at Bear Mountain. The participants walked 18 miles on the first day and sixteen miles the next day. The road ended in Central Park. Binky was part of the St. John's University chapter in this walk-a
thon. We deeply appreciate her efforts on behalf of Breast Cancer. The
walk-a-thon raised thousands of dollars.

Binky Glennon's proud mother in law, Betty Glennon, is celebrating two wonderful events. She is very enthusiastic about and supportive of Binky's efforts. In addition, Betty traveled to Ireland to see her grand daughter Christine Hodges play championship soccer. Christine is going into her sophomore year at Lynchberg College in Virginia and is part of the Chatham New Jersey Soccer League. In addition to playing in Ireland, Christine played championship matches in Germany, Holland and Austria. Betty Glennon is an outstanding member of our community. She is a person who is very involved with her family and her neighbors. It is great that she and her family are enjoying these successes.

Women on the move are positively contributing to our community.
