Newcomer’s Guide Next Week
On that Friday, those who buy the paper on the newsstand will get the 2005 Newcomer’s Guide, chock-full of everything about Rockaway that you need to know.
Those who subscribe to the paper will get their Newcomer’s Guide as a separate mailing.
In either case, the 140-page Newcomer’s Guide is designed to provide those coming to the peninsula for the first time with information about such critical items as health care facilities, police and fire information, public, parochial and private school information and where to contact their public officials.
The guide also contains a wealth of useful information about local restaurants, arts venues, events at the Gateway National Recreation Area, important local events throughout the year, information on local organizations and religious institutions.
“This is truly a guide to everything Rockaway,” said Wave Publisher Susan Locke. “The information in the book will be valuable not only for newcomers, but for those who already have sand in their shoes.”
Locke urged everybody to pick up a free copy with the Wave on July 15.
“These guides will be a valuable asset throughout the year and they are going to go fast,” she said. “Get your copy while you can.”
