During the summer, our community annual Casino Bus Trip took place on Saturday, July 30th. Many people enjoyed dining at Santorini and Pegasus and finishing off their meal with pastries and ice cream at Krema and Astoria Bakery. Our new President, Marina Cooper did a fantastic job.  Special thanks to Maria Tzanakis and Marlene Thomas for helping. Many thanks for the donations provided by Jeanne Gatoura, Maria Rosales, Marina Cooper and John Kwiatkowski.
