The sun was shining, lifeguards were back at their posts and people joined family and friends for the first barbecues of the year all along the Peninsula - the unofficial start of summer 2006 had a memorable beginning for those living in the Rockaways.

In addition, all over the area people commemorated the Memorial Day holiday by attending events to honor those we have lost in the current and past wars.

O'Donohue Park in Far Rockaway was filled with people getting together with family and friends for the all-important first cookout of the year.
