The 100 Precinct Community Council's 16th Annual "Oktoberfest" was held this week at the Bay View Restaurant in Broad Channel and celebrated the community efforts of local musicians, Michael and Sheila Finnegan.

Their music education efforts for the children of the Rockaway community were honored and celebrated.

The Peninsula Performing Arts Conservatory was founded by the couple and provides high-quality music education to children of the Rockaway Peninsula. Appropriately, the couple performed a song instead of making a speech.
