A MESSAGE FROM THE REGENCY REPORTER
MEMORIAL DAY CAR PARADE
THE EARLY DAYS – SECTIONS 1,2,3 SLIDESHOW
I can’t believe that Greta and I are living here over 19 years. It seems like we moved in just yesterday. We certainly have had some fantastic memories of the many things we did in those days.
Yes, I became the EMAILER in the first year of our living here.
We were house number 32, so only about 60 residents were already living here. To get to meet everyone plus those who would be moving in soon. Greta and I along with Bernie and Rachel Grossman, had an outdoor party under a tent that was in the street of Hogan about 3 houses long. In those days, we didn’t have a clubhouse. It was the hottest day every. Over 100 degrees and still, everyone had fun. We ordered loads to pizza’s and we had fruit salad and drinks.
Later I decided that I should get a few guys together and go out for lunch. Well from 8 guys it eventually turned out to be about 50 guys going to lunch. We eventually called ourselves the ROMEO’S (RETIRED OLD MEN EATING OUT). The ROMEO’S are still going out to lunch today but Rich Lans, graciously took over and is doing a great job. Rich, I now have time to go out with the ROMEO’S but I will only go out if you add Panini’s Grill of Freehold on your list of restaurants.
So I had another idea of getting a group of guys together to play golf at the Meadows and go out to lunch after playing. At first, there were about 8-12 guys and in no time at all this caught on and 60 guys were regulars (15 tee times) and I had about 50 subs. But again, doing the Emailing and scheduling of golf (with Larry Ehrlich’s help) was a little too much so Bob Isaacs graciously took over. I owe Bob big time for taking over.
Now how did the Men’s Club start. A group of us went to lunch and there was Larry Ehrlich saying something about men having a club. So because he brought it up he became our first President. Steve Baliff was laughing so hard well, I told him to stop laughing because he was going to be the Vice President. Sitting across the table was Irv Shatsky who was writing something on a piece of paper (maybe a love letter to his wife Margie) so naturally I said, a man with a pencil should be our Secretary. The check had come and I was figuring it out so naturally Larry made me the Treasurer. What a great way to form the MEN’S CLUB.
In those days I was the picture taker and I must have taken hundreds, if not thousands of pictures of Regency back then. So here is a slideshow of some of the pictures and you will probably say, this can’t be me!
What brings us all together as a family is the love we have for each other. These are very difficult times and I have heard that there has been some negative comments dealing with wearing and not wearing masks. Remember, we are all entitled to our expressing our feelings but doing it in a polite and respectable manner is the way it should be handled. Let’s come out of this nightmare as the community that Greta and I remembers. Our love for each of you is unquestionable and resolving differences in a peaceful manner, this is what Regency is all about.
Now let’s look at some beautiful faces!

MY EMAILING LIST
Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, many new residents are not being added to my email list because the forms we use (EMAIL AUTHORIZATION FORM) is not being given to new residents. I have also noticed that many residents who have lived here for many years, haven’t been added to my email list. Currently, as you can see, the REGENCY REPORTER is being circulated to residents through my website and not placed in your bottom mailbox.
Each Saturday I send out at last one email. However, when any emergency occurs, these emails are sent out immediately. When Club events take place, they are also added to my emails. This is my 19th year of doing the Emailing.
If you want to be added to my email list just sent me an email with your name and email address. I just can’t add email addresses without your consent. So far, I have almost 1800 resident email addresses. My email address is

ELLEN PORGES HOLE IN ONE ON HOLE #7
Somebody has been practicing during our quarantine. Congratulation Ellen. You also now go onto my list of those residents achieving a hole in one. This file is located on the right side of my main page
It should be noted that I also broke a record playing golf. I was able to hit into more sandtraps in one day then anyone else. However, my record was broken by the person I call MR. SANDMAN, Bob Isaacs. Yes, he broke my record and he did it easily.
Lined, custom drapes for living room and kitchen areas from the Bayhill expanded model.
Lovely blue and yellow striped pattern. Kitchen is a scalloped balloon design across 3 windows and sliding door ($75). Living room is a scallop balloon header across 3 windows and side panels to floor ($75). Very good condition but would suggest dry cleaning.

CUTTING THE CORD OR STAYING WITH COMCAST?
Well, towards the end of the year you will have to make a decision. Either you stay with Comcast or you “cut the cord.” Many residents have asked that if we decide to stay with Comcast should we do it as a group vs. individually. No question, doing it as a group Comcast will probably give us better pricing.
So what needs to be done? Since we don’t have a Purchasing committee anymore, we would have to set up some committee to work on dealing with Comcast. It’s time for someone, other than me, to form a committee to deal with Comcast when our two year contract expires at the end of the year. So, WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! Let me know if you are willing to get involved and once we have enough volunteers, they can get together to decide what needs to be done. Please volunteer!
(SO FAR NOT ONE PERSON HAS VOLUNTEERED. IT LOOKS LIKE WE WOULD HAVE TO NEGOTIATE WITH COMCAST INDIVIDUALLY)
2166 Broadway #4A in Upper West Side, Manhattan
Please text me 732-492-0921 or email email@example.com if interested. (LINDA LITSKY)
