Guy Maranga, Golf Outing Committee member Sal Amodeo, Jim Moriarty and Msgr. John Brown of St. Francis de Sales Parish thought that the day was just spectacular. Fontbonne Hall Academy recently held its Ninth Annual Golf, Tennis and Pool Outing at the Richmond County Country Club. Reportedly, everyone enjoyed a sunny, beautiful day, superior prizes, delicious food and good company. Alumnae, faculty, family and friends of Fontbonne Hall came out to support the event. Several members of the Rockaway community had a very good day at the outing.
