Hi Readers! Welcome to another edition of Around Town.
Congratulations to two of our very special families members for hitting milestones in their lives. Congratulations to Papa Lou on his well-deserved retirement from the Bronx Times Reporter; and to Donna Marzi for hitting her $3 million sales goal. Needless to say, we are all so proud of what you have both accomplished and wish you both much success and happiness in the coming years.
While we’re on the subject of special accomplishments, congratulations to my soldier, Pvt. Thomas Guerriero, and his Company 246 upon their graduation from the U.S. Army Boot Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky. While training in Oklahoma, stay strong, study hard, and most of all, stay safe!
