I had a lovely conversation with longtime Cutchogue Homemaker Claire Foos. She shared that she kissed the Blarney Stone and enjoyed the St. Patrick’s Day party. Last month, members visited Gasho of Japan, attended a show at Westbury Music Fair and learned how patrol officer Frank Mele and his canine partner, Hudson, of the Southold Police Department travel the town to ensure that everything is as it should be. This month, the ladies look forward to visiting the Shinnecock Indian Museum and hosting a chinese auction. Do these women sound like a bunch of homemakers? Grab a friend and join in the fun; you’ll love them! Contact Bobbi Rubenstein at 734-7543 or Mary Pedersen at 765-9243.
