Weekend in Rockaway
Daly Memorial Walk/Run

The fifth annual Rita Daly Memorial 5K (3.1 miles) Walk/Run along with peewee races will take place on Saturday, September 27, 2003 at the boardwalk at Beach 84 Street. Along with the race, there will be t-shirts, music, food, raffles, trophies and post race party. All proceeds will go to St. Rose of Lima School.

The race honors Rita Daly, a Rockaway resident of 24 years, who passed away on December 8, 1996. A mother of four children and grandmother to nine children, she was a librarian at St. Rose of Lima from 1973-1995.

Her family and friends to benefit the children of St. Rose of Lima that she cared so much about established the Rita Daly Memorial Fund at St. Rose of Lima. The foundation continues her memory and remembers all the lives she has touched. For race information, contact Patrick Daly at 516-536-1559 and Dan Daly at 516-599-3767.

The game will start at 3 p.m. and there will be free admission to the game.

Volleyball Correction

In last week’s article, "RBVL Awards Dinner Held at the Beach Club", it was Brianne Rogers and not Linda Humphries who drew the team table logos for the awards dinner party at the Beach Club.
