Erin On The Rox
The summer kicked off this year with the usual Memorial Day activities. On Sunday The Mayor’s Committee had a barbeque to raise money for our troops fighting over in Iraq. Then there were two softball games played by the Roxbury Fire Department versus the Rockaway Point Fire Department. Roxbury won both with scores of 8-7, and 6-3. Finally, the annual memorial ceremony at field took place with Father Jack officiating with help from the VFW.
