Around The Community

I forgot to thank John Cerini of the Throggs Neck Merchants Association for including us and considering future partnerships with us, although we’re not exactly a store. Our elected officials stopped by too. Nothing like hearing Semper Paratus, the Coast Guard’s hymn, unexpectedly from St. Theresa’s Church bells, while walking down the street!

Until Next Time

Shoot for the moon – if you miss, you’ll wind up ‘among the stars.’
