The Brag Bag

By Robin Shapiro

ROBIN SHAPIRO Welcome to 2007 and all the wonderful changes the New Year will bring. Best wishes to all.

2006 brought us many newcomers to the Rockaway peninsula. I'd just like to acknowledge some families that spent their first holidays in our area- Santo and Lauren Monaco, Anthony and Sonia Friel, Randy and Mirav Newman, Ingrid and Joe Levy, Ronnie and George Garwood, Maria and Joey Barelli, Rosemary and Joe Turgiano- and making the move permanently to Belle Harbor, Bob and Joyce Somerville and their expanding brood!

Get well wishes to Mindy Waks, Jim Kelly and Rose Fraiman, mother of Carl Fraiman- speedy recovery to his wife, Blossom, who is still recuperating from her broken shoulder.

Congratulations to Meghan Sugrue and Timmy O'Brien on the birth of their son, Timothy James O'Brien Jr.

More congratulations to Adriana Greco (Daniella and George) on her early graduation from Leon M. Goldstein High School. She will be attending a local college this semester before transferring in September with the rest of her group. Please email me the acceptances for early decision so I can print them next time!

Bon voyage to Pat and Pudge Williams and the rest of the snowbirds, making their way to Florida and other locations south and west! Adios to my son David Shapiro, who will be studying abroad this term in Barcelona, Spain. Can't wait to visit him there!

Happy and healthy new year to all!

Love, Robin
