Honoring Your Neighbor
Pop

BY BRUCE JAZWINSKI
GUEST WRITER

I grew up in a small lake community

called Shenorock. Shenorock was a com-

munity of small summer cottages with

families moving in and converting to year-

round homes.

My dad, Bob Jazwinski took a big risk

when he bought the local grocery store and

opened “Bob’s General Store”. Soon after

opening the store, dad became known to

the residents of Shenorock simply as “Pop”.

I think maybe because he treated every kid

as if they were his own.

Pop owned the General Store, started a

real estate company and had a contract with

e United States Postal Service delivering

mail to Shenorock and neighboring towns

of Lincolndale, Purdys and North Salem.

My older brothers Bobby, Johnny and I all

helped Pop with the mail run as we grew

up so Pop could coach basketball for Father

Brady at St. Joseph’s Church. My nephew J

still does the mail run to this day.

Pop helped make Shenorock an amaz-

ing place to grow up. He helped to establish

a community center through the United

Owner Association (UOA). e community

center was called e Shenorock Clubhouse. IMAGE COURTESY OF JEFF MOSHER

Kennedy Catholic held its Valedictorian Eileen Cooney
commencement June 8, at St. Joseph’s
Church in Somers, graduating 144
students.

Following the familiar strains of
“Pomp and Circumstance” and an
invocation delivered by Anthony
Sanseverino from the graduating
class, Patricia Curtin, the salutatorian
who lives in Hawthorne, took to the
podium. Curtin, a National Merit
Scholarship winner who will be
attending Notre Dame, delivered an
alternately whimsical and moving
speech that lit upon the transience, and
importance, of memories made in high
school.

Diplomas were then conferred by
e Most Reverend Peter Byrne,
auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese
of New York, and Rev. Mark G.
Vaillancourt, Ph.D, president and
principal of Kennedy Catholic.
A number of local businesses and
service groups rewarded nearly two
dozen members of the graduating
class for both their scholarship and
public service. e Somers Women’s
