New England and Canadian travels

I just returned from a delightful eight day cruise to New England and Canada. The ship left from Brooklyn, N.Y., and went to Halifax, Nova Scotia; St. John, New Brunswick; Bar Harbor, Maine; Boston and Newport, R.I. The weather was grand, with temperatures in the 70s each day. We enjoyed the off-the-ship tours that were available for each stop that we made. I can’t wait until next summer to plan another cruise.

A jammin’ end to summer music

I hear from my neighbors that the Sept. 14 Jam Session was a great success. Sgt. Chris Purvis of Hyattsville Police Department provided the entertainment. This ended our jam sessions for this summer. We will have to wait until next May for the next one.

Fall Fest

The First Baptist Church of Hyattsville invites all to their second annual Fall Fest on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the church grounds at 5701 42nd Avenue. I will look for you there.

Jewelers close family-owned shop

After 63 years of serving the area, Fleisher’s Jewelers is closing its doors at the end of October. The family-owned business is located in the Queens Chapel Shopping Center. We will dearly missed them and wish the family the very best.  Please drop by, as there may be sales during October.

Cops return to rooftops

Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday for Cops on Rooftops. This fun-filled event will take place at the Dunkin Donuts at 3300 Queens Chapel Road and is a fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Maryland. Police Chief Doug Holland and the Hyattsville Police Department will be participating. Come on by and have some fun and contribute to a worthy cause.

Hyattsville history: 1961

In addition to the gala plans for a special commemoration of the 75th anniversary, the  new year brought approval by the citizens of a salary increase for the mayor and City Council members, as well as a legal controversy surrounding construction of a new Municipal Building.
