To paraphrase a poem by famous Scottish poet Robert Burns: “The best laid schemes of mice and men often go awry.” And, so, it was last Saturday as the much-awaited 10th anniversary celebration of our Village Green was canceled due to inclement weather.
But, have no fear—and, remember you read it first here—the East Quogue Civic Association and the East Quogue Chamber of Commerce are rescheduling the festivities. The big event is now tentatively planned for Saturday, June 29, so stay tuned.
Karen Reardon may be a Floridian now but her heart is still in East Quogue. And she wants to do a little “grandma bragging” about Shauna.
As a young girl, Shauna was one of my first interviews. Well, that was quite a while ago and she is now a beautiful young lady who has finished her fourth semester at Brevard Community College in Florida with a 3.4 GPA. Shauna will attend the University of Central Florida to complete a bachelor’s degree in elementary teaching. Way to go, Shauna!
Another bright young star is Shaun Enright, a 2012 graduate of the Suffolk Police Youth Academy, who has been inducted into the National Technical Honor Society. The Westhampton Beach High School student, who plans to pursue a career in law enforcement, celebrated his 17th birthday on Sunday, May 19.
And more kudos go to Christine Hogge Grunewald of Merrimack, New Hampshire, who earned a master’s degree in nursing education from Rivier University. Christine received a bachelor’s degree in nursing in 1981 from Adelphi University and has been practicing for 32 years. She currently works at the Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, New Hampshire, and will join the Rivier University School of Nursing as faculty this fall. Christine’s mom, Audrey Hogge, of West Side Avenue, is extremely proud of her daughter.
And, finally, remember the article about the delightful East Quogue couple who developed a line of clothing that featured small, cartoon-like characters sewn into the pockets of each item (“Keeping A ‘Frenz’ In Their Pocket,” July 19, 2012)? Well, Marni and Jason Hefter will be featured in an upcoming episode of CNBC’s “Crowd Rules” where couples compete in front of fellow entrepreneurs and business owners to earn enough votes for a game-changing $50,000 investment in their company.
The episode is set to air on Tuesday, June 4, at 9 p.m. Be sure to tune in!
