No matter how you spent your St. patricks day I hope everyone will be safe and have a good time. You might want to consider stopping by the Tamaqua, where there will be good food, Irish step dancing from Maureen O’Malley and a live band (Alive N Kickin’)
Last Saturday night, January 30th, 2010,Â Â Gerritsen Beach held aÂ BenefitÂ for the family devestated by a fire a few weeks ago. To say that the Tamaqua was packed is anÂ understatement, it was more like packed to the gills the entire night. Rare Form and DJ FerillieÂ played the entire night
Senator Marty Golden stopped by to talk with the family and crowd.
The whole community really came out to support to family.
Santas visit to the Tamaqua was all about one thing, the children!
Our neighborhood children & parents shared a family day at the Tamaqua Marina on Sunday Dec. 13th.
It was a free event which included a Candy Land Table [lots of baked goodies & candies donated by the gang at the Tamaqua],face painting by Donna Rea, Hot Dogs, Burgers & Fries donated by the Sarubbi’s, Charlie Martinez donated his time to DJ for us & Timmy Cothren led us all with Christmas Carols.
The Tamaqua raised enough money to sponsor the spread & a bunch of presents from us through a raffle for a 42″ T.V.
This year they are donating the Toys received to Auntie Lu’s Toy Box a foundation that directly benefits the Children of the Oncology Unit at Brooklyn Hospital.
Reminder the Cort Club Children’s Christmas Party is Sunday, December 20th

Caitlin Sarubbi is a rising star in the adaptive ski-racing world with a goal of medaling in the 2010 Paralympics in Vancouver. Caitie is 19 years old, and was born with Ablepharon Macrostomia that left her without eyelids and other facial deformities. Caitlin, for the past three years, has maintained excellent grades while training and competing at the National level to qualify for the US Adaptive Ski Team (USAST). Caitie achieved both her scholastic and skiing goals. She is currently attending Harvard University as a pre med undergraduate, in addition to being named to the United Stated Adaptive Team.
In order to compete, Caitie requires the assistance of a guide. The guide is Caitiesâ€™ adaptive equipment and creates an enormous financial burden on the Visually Impaired skiers. Caitie has a current budget of $100,000, which includes the cost of her guide, travel expenses, training fees, and equipment, times two, through 2010 paraylmpics.
