On 6/18/11 Chewee met the famous COOPER LAWRENCE from WPLJ Radio 95.5 with Scott and Todd. Chewee was so happy to meet Cooper he wanted to play. WPLJ had a bean bag toss and Chewee wanted to play in the worst way. He was so excited he jumped up on me and kissed me all over my face saying, "thanks for bringing me here mom". Chewee now has a new girl friend he can listen to everyday on the radio. It was a wonderfully exciting day for Chewee and COOPER.
Chewee leads the Huckleberry Parade to the Village Hall with the East Rockaway's Ladies Auxilary. It was a very hot morning and Chewee was a champ marching in the parade. Chewee always supports the East Rockaway Grist Mill and all the funds that were raised go to the running of the Grist Mill. Chewee was very proud to march for his Village and he was treated with water and a hot dog when he finished the parade.
On 6/5/11 the last performance of Oliver Twist was performed. Chewee was a magnificent "Bullseye". He received a standing ovation from the audience and everyone cheered at his fantastic performance. The audiences gasps were heard when he leaped into the air twice in the scene, when Bill Sykes was killing Nancy. Oliver, played by Noah worked together with Chewee to create a true magical stage moment when they had to cling together on stage. Chewee loved working with all the actors and he had a special bond with all of them. At the cast party, the producer had wonderful things to say about him and said he looked forward to working with him again. It was a very exciting night.

Yesterday on Memorial Day, the Village of East Rockaway had a fantastic parade to celebrate what our War Veterans have given up in their lives to protect our way of living. Little Mr America and Chewee lead the parade down Main Street and into Memorial Park. A beautiful ceremony was held and a 21 gun salute was given. It was a proud day and here are the boys taken a moment of rest after a long walk in the hot sun. Everyone had a great time and then celebrated with a BBQ afterwards.
