Woodbine 5.10.2006

By Rick Racela



The Woodbine Curves franchise, now under new ownership, is holding their Grand Re-opening Celebration this month.

Open House will be May 21 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. and May 22 and 23 from 6:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Refreshments will be served and new members will receive a free gift.

Curves is located in the Campark Complex on Route 550.

The new owners, Sue and Todd Zimmerman, have increased the hours from 6:20 a.m. – 8 p.m. (with a closing for staff lunches from 1 ­- 3 p.m.)

Our buddy, Bernadette, who held the record for most visits to Curves during the local shop’s first year in business, says the expanded schedule has helped de-stress her overfilled days.

If thirty minutes of workout works for you, too, stop by and check out their program.


Speaking of healthy living, St. Casimir’s Church is holding a Health Fair May 23 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The Parish Nurse program of St. Casimir’s Church sponsors the event.

Come into Woodbine May 23 and stop by Curves, before or after the Health Fair.

If you get there really early in the morning, you might even have a chance to meet Bernadette.

Student Government Day for Woodbine Elementary School’s eighth graders was held May 4, in combination with an Arbor Day Commemoration.

Participating students were: Michael Wing, Donta Holt, Joshua Acosta, Adbul Brown, Carlos Camacho, Luis Cartagena, Gerald Cephas, Matthew Cerracchio, Tyonna Edmonds, Dona L. Foster, Aaron Freeman, Katelyn Gold, Kayla Henderson, Brittany Jacobs, Nahomi Penaloza, Mariah Rodriguez, Edwin Santana, Sabrina Smith, Khalil Wallace, Ja’qwan Weldon, and Catherine Wing.

Accompanying them were teachers: Sharon Popper, Sam Downes, and Leon Ellis.

Rose Farnan was unable to join us this year, due to yet another field trip.

However, she and Tony DeVico, Woodbine’s teacher of the year, joined the group for the Mayor’s questions and answer period.

The students heard from Municipal staff members Edna Thomas, Lisa Garrison, Monserrate Gallardo, and Jack Miller.

Mayor Pikolycky spoke at length and in depth about the workings of the municipality, answered questions, and distributed certificates, while interacting with the students about their high school plans.

At the end of the morning, both students and teachers were given tubeling trees to take home.

Other, somewhat larger trees, donated to the Borough by Conective, thanks Roni, are being fostered by Head Custodian Don Jenkins and his helpers, until they are “sized up” for outdoor planting following the upcoming construction on the school site.
