PBA Local 186 Cocktail Party and Valor Awards at Seasons

PBA Local 186 Cocktail Party and Valor Awards
My friend Jim Teehan sent me an e-mail inviting me to cover the PBA Honor Awards Dinner, one of their few funds solicitations. Jumping at the chance to give credit due, www.ParamusPost.com attended. Walking into Seasons, the first people I met were Police Chief Richard Cary and Barbara, his wife. Rick is also a fellow Rotarian serving as Director of Community Service.
From there it was like old home week seeing Det. Lt. Rob Wright, Captains Kevin Smith and Jim Sheehan, Det. Lt. Bob (Edward G. Robinson) Guidetti, Det. Jim Teehan and Rob von Schalscha, Sgt. Norm Bizek, Ret. Chief Fred Corrubia and his wife, Brian McGovern, Sean Benson, Rich and Margaret Abbamont, Rich and Mary Ann Siniscalchi, BoE Trustee Frank Straka and Carol, his wife, just to name a few of the many attendees.
