The Hampton

Congratulations to Stanley Glazer and his wife, Gerry, on Stanley’s 90th birthday. What a milestone! Stanley is a former board member and president. Have a great birthday, Stanley, and if you need help blowing out those candles you know who to call.

We want to welcome our latest new members of the community … Becky Stauffer and Dale and Marty Krulick. Welcome to FL and the Hamptons!

We mourn the passing of Eleanor Mailman and Milton Schertz, significant other of Marian Moskowitz.

Attention readers … we are starting a Book Club, the first meeting is at Connie Lamendola’s at 8224 Cassia Drive on Jan. 1st. The book to read is: “Green on Blue” by Elliot Ackerman.

Get well wishes to Sheila Cherry, Dave Price and Sheryl Rapport.

Thanks again to Ellen Gold and Janet Friedman for being so helpful in contacting me with news for our column.

Congratulations to Harry Rosenstein on being honored by the NY Giants, at Giant Stadium at the Opening Game of the Season. He was celebrated for being a Giant Subscription – Ticket-Holder for 60 years. His picture was on the scoreboard. Harry has 6 Season Tickets. He has given them to our daughter Heather and her family as we are only able to go to a few games since we moved here. You are only allowed to give them to a blood relative; he had to show his Birth Certificate, my daughter’s birth certificate and her marriage license. Really complicated. He also had an article written about him by George Willis a sports writer for the NY Post on Sept. 9, 2014. The NY Post is the “Bible of Sports Fans,” and you can see him reading the Post at the Club pool. He has a lending library for his sports fans.

Our son, Michael, from Margate, NJ, was part of the Operation BBQ Relief in NC. They were there for a week feeding 100,000. He was recruited by his friend, Dave Marks, the owner of “Famous Dave” BBQ. I know that at the end of the week he had pizza. Kudos to all the fantastic volunteers.

Holiday times are right around the corner and Barbara and Bill Whitelaw will celebrate with their children for Christmas and New Year’s in Costa Rica. Nice change of scenery!!!

By now, we know who our new president of the U.S. is. What a contentious election! I am a Canadian by birth, so I am a convert to American citizenship. Boy, I wouldn’t have missed this one for the world.

Hampton Highlights

Hi Hamptonites!
We just returned in time for Hurricane Matthew and are so lucky that we had so little damage. It was our first hurricane in Florida and of course we were apprehensive, especially when we kept hearing the updates. It was good to see how prepared the state was.

Hope you all had a good summer; I know a lot of us were away on vacation.

Speedy recovery to Bart Cherry; he is recovering nicely. Good health wishes to all residents of the Hamptons who are ailing.

Our calendars are getting full! Our annual budget meeting is coming up. Let’s hope for a balanced bud-get to take us into a new year.

Next month, this column will list our neighbors who recently passed away. It is always sad when long-time residents who were here from the very be-ginning leave us. Rest in peace.

Club members have a cocktail hour planned for Oct. 20, at 4:30. We welcome all new members who have bought in the Hamptons.

Again, we wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Hello From the Hamptons

Hi Hamptonites!
Barbara Whitelaw has a beautiful gardenia bush that she planted from a baby 22 years ago. Bring your own scissors and take a sample. The fragrance is un-believable. Put one behind your ear and play Billie Holiday.

The Whitelaws have a string of great news and accomplishments regarding their family. Grandson Maxwell Levinson is graduating from George Wash-ington U. Grandson Elias Levinson has a gig a the U. of Vermont. Grandson Philip Ruderman contin-ues his studies in China. Granddaughter Stephanie Whitelaw is attending the U. of Barcelona. Grandson Asher David of Monsey, NY will be attending Ye-shiva Shaarei Arazim H.S. in Spring Valley, NY. Willie IV is graduating from a school in Little Rock, AK and best baby, David Whitelaw, has hit his eighth-month birthday. What great news and nachus for the Whitelaws!

Congratulations to Nancy Rosenstein for once again hitting the mark in Aberdeen On Stage. She closed the show with a rendition of “If you could see me now” from Sweet Charity. This is her third performance in an Aberdeen show, this time was held at the Park Vista Theater at Park Vista H.S. There were 700 people in attendance and we had rave reviews.

There are more Honor Flights leaving from Palm Beach. They honored the World War II Veterans, and have started with Arlington Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and then on to the Korean Veteran Monument. Harry Rosenstein will be joining them sometime in the fall, as he was a Tank Commander in the Korean conflict, and served honorably. He is too modest to tell people that he was awarded 2 Bronze Stars. Good luck to all who served!

I understand that the Hampton Social Committee is planning some great events for the upcoming sea-son; as soon as I am notified, you will hear about it.

I am asking one and all to please send me any events or newsworthy items so that you can make our Hamptonites aware of what’s happening.

Have a great summer – everyone!

On Mar. 12th. 45 Hampton residents had a luncheon get-together at Nicole’s’ Restaurant. We laughed, ate and just had a great afternoon. Plans are in the works for a Hampton book club and other so-cial activities.

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the passing of Alice Kasarsky. Alice was a long-time Hampton resident (1987-2016). Our condolences are sent to the entire Kasarsky family.

After many years of writing Hampton articles for the “Aberdeen Times,” I am passing the baton to someone other than myself. I have enjoyed being the recipient of good news and unfortunately, the barer of bad news. Such goes with the territory.

I wish you all good health and to our Jewish res-dents, a most Happy Passover.

Hello From the Hamptons

March was a busy month for the Hamptons! We started off with the community luncheon on Mar. 12th. Forty-seven residents, as of this date, enjoyed a lovely afternoon of socializing, eating and winning prizes. My thanks and appreciation go out to our so-cial committee whose effort and hard work helped to make the day a huge success. – JANET FRIEDMAN, JOYCE HIRSCHMAN, CORINNE SCHLEIFMAN, ALYCE SIMONS.

Mar. 15th, gave Hampton residents an opportunity to meet the candidates running for board positions. Mar. 22nd. was our annual community meeting and election of board directors. Election results will be posted at the pool as well as in the May edition of the Aberdeen Times. Thank you to the nominating committee who gave of their time to interview all potential candidates. – JOE ROSZKOWSKI, CON-NIE LAMENDOLA, GERRI GLAZER.

On a very sad note we regret to inform you of the passing of Lawrence Greene on Friday, February 12, 2016. Larry was a longtime resident (1987-2016) and former Board Director of the Hampton HOA. He will be fondly remembered by all who knew and loved him. Our condolences are sent to Selma and the entire Greene family.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all a most joyous Easter and a happy Passover.

Hello From the Hamptons

John, a practicing lawyer in Tiverton, RI, has won a State Senate election and has been certified by the State Board of Elections as State Senator for District 11. This district encompasses the towns of Portsmouth, Tiverton and Bristol, RI. There are only 38 senators in the RI legislature. Congratulations to John and Barbara.

Marion Drutman has something to “qvell” about too. Her grandson, Jordan, is now an associate producer on the Steven Colbert show on CBS. She tries very hard to stay awake till 12:30 AM to watch the show. Her granddaughter, Makena, is with a well-known advertising company and Nick, the youngest, attends Northwestern University. “ALL IS GOOD”

AS A REMINDER Mar. 22, 2016 – Annual Hampton Community Meeting I have been approached by several residents that are interested in forming a book club. Contact Connie Lamendola (336-4914) if the idea “rocks your boat.”

Susan Spillert is looking for year-round canasta players. Let her know if you want to join a game.

Our annual Hampton Luncheon is scheduled for Sat., Mar. 12, 2016. Last year’s luncheon was a huge success with 71 Hampton residents in attendance. I am looking forward to seeing all of you on that day.

Wishing all of our Irish and non-residents a most Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
