Long-time Rockaway residents Adam Funtleyder and his wife Diana invited members of the Rockaway community to take part in a Christmas celebration last week at the "Busy Bee Learning Store." The store, located at 111-14 Rockaway Beach Boulevard in Rockaway Beach, carries a full line of educational supplies, teacher material, student learning aides, educational toys, games, music and art supplies.

Adam, a teacher at P.S. 225 in Rockaway Beach, told The Wave that although he loves education, he’s always had an interest in business.

"I saw a need for a store that would serve parents and teachers here in Rockaway and I put the two interests together," said Adam.

The store held its grand opening on November 23, and since that time many from the community have shown up to purchase much needed supplies. His wife, working in the educational system as well, is the head of the Life Center at the High School Redirection in Brownsville, Brooklyn.
