Paramus Sunrise Rotary Attends A Pool Party

Seeking a warm Sunday in August, the Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club held a pool party at one of its members' homes. The weather listened and the Rotarians and their families had a terrific time. Not only did they swim, but the food that the members brought presented a challenge to the avoirdupois. Held at the home of Jennifer and Joe Castelano, there was very little missing. The companionship, beverages, discussions and the frivolity coupled with activities for the younger generation made it a super day.
One couple, Gary and Bea Spivak, made the visit with their twins after arriving home from Virginia at the stroke of midnight, the evening before. Needless to say, nobody blamed 'party girl' Bea when she conked out in the warm sun. Janet Pomante brought a slew of food, so much that others took some home. President Sophie Stone, Sam her husband, and two daughters, Cassy and Christy were very active. The girls played with some of the younger children while Sam discussed Rotary and computers. In the meantime, Sophie prepared an interesting appetizer: shrimp bathed in mayonnaise and placed on a thinly sliced cucumber which was resting on a round cracker. That dish had to be replenished several times.
Bob and Karen Sherwood not only enjoyed the food and conversation, but once Karen got into the pool, there was no way of getting her out. This was true of Tina Apprich as well. Both ladies enjoyed the refreshing water which Joe had at a temperature of 85 degrees. Karen was seen playing 'throw the ball' with Hemish Kapedia's 18 month 'cute as a button' daughter while Hemish's wife looked on.
When the food came out, it was difficult to choose between the fried chicken, veal and the many salads on the table. When the desserts were offered, it was forget the calorie count, cookies and crumb cakes ruled followed by some whipped cream on top.
The attendees regretfully said their goodbyes, but kept with them wonderful memories and thoughts of praise for the Castelano family.
