The Brag Bag

By Robin Shapiro

ROBIN SHAPIRO Congratulations to Jane Haltzer on her fifth grandchild. Youngest daughter Alexandra had another baby- that makes three boys! Sister Jackie, her husband Doug Shonfeld and their two boys live in Neponsit.

George and Joan Diehl (she's one of the many fabulous teachers at PS 114) celebrated the baptism of their first grandchild, Giovanna. Congratulations to her parents, Mary and Roman. Mary is a fashion designer with her own company, The House of Diehl.

What a coincidence! Neighbors from the same Belle Harbor block both flew out to California to celebrate their sons' graduation from Stanford University. Adam (Dr. Stephen and Ilene Kapelnev) and Kevin (Hank and Chris Iori) graduated with honors from this prestigious college.

Congratulations to our own local band "Stiffler." They will be debuting the release of their newest CD, Good Til Your Heart Pops at the Continental, and kicking off their cross-country summer tour. Bandmates include Dylan Lipari, Gary Wallach, Vin Gajewski, Frank Candela and Alex Salgado.

Best of luck to you all!

Love, Robin.
