Fine Season Ends for Rockaway Tennis Players It was a special day for a special group of people. The tennis participants of Beach Channel High School were all smiles as they celebrated with Ronald McDonald (92 Street) and manager Mike P. The New York Junior Tennis League Kids were treated last week at McDonald’s to a buy one get one free day. The event went really well, the kids and the parents made a great day of it all and for all. Everyone at the NYJTL BCHS site really want to give a big thanks to the manager of McDonald’s. On the final day of the program, the tennis league had an luncheon and an awards ceremony to celebrate the completion of the program.
