Farmingville, NY -  On May 27, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (back row, center) visited the Frank J. Carasiti Elementary School in Rocky Point to help students prepare and mail out “Lunchbags of Love” to members of the military who are serving overseas. The second-grade students in Mrs. Stacy Iberger’s class made boxes containing personal hygiene items, candy, pens, paper, note cards, word puzzle books and decks of cards which were all donated by the students. The boxes also included decorated bags and letters written by the students to those who will receive the boxes. During her visit, the Councilwoman presented certificates of appreciation to Mrs. Iberger and the students. She was joined by Mrs. Iberger (fourth from left); school principal Dr. Virginia Gibbons (third from right); Commander Joe Cognitore (back row, second from right) and members of Rocky Point VFW Post 6249.

Councilwoman Bonner said, “I am overwhelmed with the generosity and spirit of the students who took the time to make life a little better for the men and women who are serving overseas. When you’re many miles from home, it’s nice to get a reminder that people care.”
