party postscript

Last week's 50th Anniversary Celebration was a great success. Thanks to all of you, over a hundred neighbors, who made the occasion festive and friendly.

The celebration was the result of the hard work of our Anniversary Committee Chairwoman Linda Blyer, our Second Vice-President Susan Dowling, and the entire committee:
Janet Barrett
Elaine Hellew
Ann Moore Hutton
Laurie Maurer
Anne Renda
Franklin Stone and
Jo Weber.
We are also grateful to our outstanding local merchants and musicians who joined us for the occasion. All of them donated services or offered us generous terms.

-The Heights Chateau on Atlantic Avenue donated all of the wine for the occasion. That is a generosity that we should all remember.

-Floral Heights supplied the beautiful flowers, many of which they donated. Thank you, Floral Heights.

-Stephen Stein and Popular Printing did the graphics work and printed the invitation and journal.
-Eventfull Catering served the delicious food and was very easy to work with.
-Michael and the Dreamland Orchestra played the music, which was very well-suited to the occasion.

Please support these outstanding local businesses.

Some of our elected officials joined us as well: Borough President Marty Markowitz, Representative Nydia Velázquez, State Seantor Daniel Squadron, and State Assemlywoman Joan Millman.

And we owe special thanks to the Borough President for letting us use beautiful Borough Hall for the occasion. Thanks, Marty.

Rest assured, we will not wait another fifty years to hold another swell party.
