    Ruth Welch’s 95th and Janet Hoek’s 80th Birthday Party

    Family and friends celebrated a combined Birthday Party for two members of the United Methodist Church of Sayville, Ruth Welch’s 95th & Janet Hoek’s 80th.

    Pastor Richard Allen gave the invocation to the assembled 90 guests and everyone sang Happy Birthday to these wonderful ‘Church Ladies’. Also attending were the present and past commanders of the Sayville American Legion Post 651, Steve Antonacci, accompanied by his wife Janette and Gary Vertichio, accompanied by his fiancé Maureen Murphy.

    Ruth Welch, a WWII Navy Veteran has been a Legionnaire for 75 years and is a honored at our post for her lifelong support to her fellow veterans. A wonderful time was had by all in attendance and Ruth & Janet had as much or more fun than their guests. They even had grab bags for their guests, one prize was picked by Post Chaplain Ray Tomich and to everyone’s surprise his wife Fran’s name was picked so she was the recipient of a beautiful aqua neckless and matching earrings –  ‘The Luck of the Italians’. Thank you Ruth and Janet for allowing us all to share in the fun and joy you each live for every day.
