A letter from Peter Vercillo
Project Hope Chairperson

Dear ROBS Member,
     This is now the 12th year for ROBS PROJECT HOPE. As you may know, PROJECT HOPE is a way for the retirees of the Brentwood school community to show we are still concerned about the children of the area. Through SUBURBAN CHILDREN INC., ROBS adopts local families during the traditional holiday season. Food is provided for Thanksgiving and many gifts ar bought, wrapped and presented at Christmas time.
     In the past, many of you have generously supported this endeavor. Your efforts have been very much appreciated, not only by the folks at Suburban but especially by the children and their parents.
     Through our donations, PROJECT HOPE touches the lives of many. It is a way to add o the joy and the spirit of the season. Please help continue this fine tradition. Checks should be made payable to ROBS/PROJECT HOPE, so that we may keep proper records. Please send checks to: Peter Vercillo, 26 Willoughby St., Brentwood NY 11717.
     Thank you for your loyalty and support. Best wishes for the special weeks ahead.
Peter Vercillo
Project Hope Chairperson

Dear Colleagues,
  You are invited to have lunch with me, Lil  Jason, Loretta Ellington and all our friends who care to join us on Thursday, March 12, 2009.
   We will eat again at Padrino's  (unless you know some other restaurant that will reserve a table for us during season) at 12 noon.  This year, we will have a slight change. Everyone will pick up their own checks and can order from the menu or have the buffet, whichever one chooses. Most of you are familiar with the food and location, but I will still need a final count by March 10th to give to the owner. Please call me at 561-488-1267 (H) or 561-716-6068 (C) for further information or email me at MarilynDeplaza@aol.com
