R & R MUSIC SCHOOL 16 NORTH ROUTE 9W CONGERS, NY 845 267-3311 RnRmusicschool.com R&R Music School, located in Congers, New York, provides music instruction and education in a range of different areas for preschoolers, children, teens, and adults. We believe that music provides a sense of community and is an integral part of life. Our mission is to provide a quality education in traditional methods and theories while fostering creativity and passion for the art. During the summer, R&R Music School offers a variety of different programs including our Rock Camps. The camps are held daily from 9am - 3pm. The goal is to form a full set list for a performance and learn how to apply individual music skills in a group setting. New material and techniques are taught each day. An emphasis will be placed on improvising and soloing. Activities will include: learning and writing songs, audio gear training, music theory and appreciation, recording techniques, music performance, and how to work together as a band. During the week there will be a performance held in our studio and broadcast live and streamed on R&R radio. Ultimately, the camp will lead up to a performance held for friends and family at a local venue. For more info visit: www.RnRmusicschool.com

Xeomin is the newest form of muscle relaxant and wrinkle smoother based on botulinum, similar to Botox and Dysport. Of the three, Xeomin, contains the fewest additives. Additives may be the reason botulinum treatments become less effective for some after repeated use. This is good news for people who think they may have developed a resistance to Botox or Dysport. It takes about one week for the full effects of Xeomin to be realized. $50 Off one Xeomin treatment starting Apr. 1st. This offer is limited, call for details.

Laser relief has arrived! No Needles! No Drugs!

Frequently Asked Questions

HELPS ELIMINATE:

Q: How does the laser help reduce/eliminate sensitivities/allergies? A: An allergy is a mistake. The Bax 3000 laser therapy helps to re-condition the body and nerve system to no longer perceive substances as harmful, thus calming down the immune system and the body. The laser carries digitized substances (e.g. cat, egg, dust, pollen), into specific allergy points of the body at the same time, producing endorphins. By introducing a positive stimulus in conjunction with the specific stress inducing substance…symptoms can be reduced or eliminated. The laser reduces the neurological stress associated with the substance!

• Food Allergies • Cat & Dog Allergies • Pollen, Molds, Dustmite Allergies and Much More • ADHD, Eczema, Asthma, Sinusitis, Post Nasal Drip

ADVANCED BAX-3000 LASER THERAPY

Q: What allergies can the BAX-3000 identify? A: The BAX-3000 computer has over 96,000 substances in the advanced procedures libraries. These substances are stored in the computer in the form of a digital frequency that matches the energetic frequency of the real substance.

FDA APPROVED

WATCH success stories at: www.allergylaserrelief.com or youtube.com, Bax 3000

Q: Is the Bax 3000 Safe? A: Yes, the Bax 3000 is FDA cleared and safe for all ages, including children. No negative side effects!

TESTIMONIALS Edward age 45 reported, “I had severe pollen allergies for years and 2009 was the first year I got no Ragweed allergies. It works...amazing!”

Stephen age 11 reported, “I had severe cat allergies that caused my eyes to swell horribly. After six laser treatments for cat I can now play with cats without any reactions and it’s been over six months since my last laser treatment.”

Dr. William Johnson has practiced in the wellness and holistic field for over 12 years. He currently practices holistic allergy care, nutrition, cessation of smoking and spinal rehab care. His objective is to empower people to reclaim their full potential and health by reducing the stress placed on the body and nerve system through structural spinal care, proper nutrition, laser care and exercise. He currently writes articles for a local publication and lectures on how to “Eat Well, Move Well and Think Well.” He also works closely with local high-school sports teams.

Dr. William Johnson, B.S., D.C. 221 South Middletown Rd. Nanuet Advanced Laser Therapy for: Quit Smoking, Migraines, Brain Fog, Weight Loss, Shingles and Chronic Viral Illness

The Business of Women in Rockland

by Jeff Finkle

This month, Rockland Essentials is profiling women who are enjoying success in their chosen professions and have taken on the challenges of running businesses that help make up the fabric of their communities. These women are dealing with issues that we all deal with, balancing work and family together in order to make their lives run as smoothly as one can. They also share one very important thing in common. They all love what they do and do it enthusiastically.

Alice Lenna

You might say that bowling ‘rolls’ in her family and Alice Lenna has been bowling and working at New City Bowl since she was a child in the late 1960’s. Her mother bowled in a league there and Alice got hooked on the fun sport when she was a girl. Lenna has been the manager at New City Bowl for over twenty-four years

Bansari Sharma loves the beauty business and is passionate about educating the customers who come to her European Wax Center with beauty tips. She loves making people feel better about their selves, from the outside in with hair, makeup and wax treatments and from the inside out by providing a comfortable and relaxing environment for them. She has always enjoyed the subtle art of waxing and has never been a fan of too much body hair. Sharma is proud to have been the first person to bring a European Wax Center to Rockland County, having opened a franchise in New City in 2012. She went to Rutgers University and studied at a beauty school in Paris and believed that the upscale European wax center environment would do well in the NY/NJ area. She researched ‘Euro Wax’ thoroughly, got a business loan and emBansari Sharma barked on her small business dream by European Wax Center opening her own franchise in New City. “In Rockland County, people tend to be very loyal,” she noted. She loves working with her tight-knit group of co-workers, who have helped create a friendly environment for customers. “Coming from my background of having done waxes myself, I can relate to my employees well,” Sharma noted. Bansari pointed out the importance of getting emotional support from her parents and her fiancé in starting her small business. She is currently planning her wedding and you can be sure both Sharma and her bridesmaids will look beautiful.

Alice Lenna and her husband New City Bowl

and her passion for making the bowling center an outlet for the community to socialize in has helped keep the bowling center a mainstay for family entertainment in the area. “We try to make it feel like a family oriented bowling alley,” noted Ms. Lenna. She worked at New City Bowl as a teenager coaching kids and left to manager a bakery for seven years before being recruited by new owners in the late ‘80s to return to New City Bowl and work there. Her husband is a volunteer coach for the Clarkstown bowling team and Alice went to Syracuse this year to support the high school team in the State Finals. Generations of family members in Rockland County have grown up with memories of bowling at New City Bowl and Lenna has made it her life’s passion to make it a place where people of all ages can experience new memories, like birthday parties, or just enjoy a fun night out with their friends.

Stacey Lambos

Stacy Lambos Aqua Terra Grille

has lived in Pearl River for over 30 years but her family has been in the restaurant business for even longer. She and her husband are co-owners of The Harbor restaurant in City Island, in the Bronx and after the success of this seafood restaurant with beautiful seaside views, Lambos and her husband decided to bring their flair for providing great food and a comfortable atmosphere to Rockland by opening the Aqua Terra Grille in Pearl River. She wanted to provide the county with “a neighborhood gem in the middle of Pearl River,” she noted. Lambos and her husband had held onto the property, even after selling the “Hudson Bay” restaurant in 1989, which had been a Rockland County staple for years. Through the management of Stacy Lambos, and after giving the landmark building a facelift, the Aqua Terra Grille has become a go-to spot for great American modern cuisine in the area. “Rockland deserves a great restaurant,” she noted and is proud to be providing the community with an elegant restaurant while keeping the comfort of a neighborhood spot. Stacy Lambos has spent her life working in restaurants and has a business education degree from Rutgers. Both she and her husband got their starts working in Greek diners and their passion for hospitality has been passed down to their son, who recently graduated from Culinary Institute of America.

is Rockland County’s resident Warhol when it comes to the ”pop art” of crafting tasty cookie treats and through her cute New City store Cookie Girl, she has turned everyone who enters it into a fan. Damesek is a former art teacher who turned her love of baking cookies into a new career. She started by following a recipe in a book for hand painted cookies and became obsessed with baking these delicious treats that were also pleasing to the eye. After getting calls and demands from friends and neighbors for her unique sugar cookies she began to think she might have a product that people would love, she opened Stacy Damesek the Cookie Girl store two and a half years Cookie Girl ago. She loves “making crazy things out of cookies” she noted and Damasek and her small staff can customize cookies in many creative styles. Her “cake pops” which are a ball of cake on a stick decorated into floral arrangements are a big favorite of her loyal customers. Damesek has two kids at Woodglen Elementary and juggles motherhood and Cookie Girl while trying to get involved in community fund raisers whenever she can. She is grateful for being able to work so close to home and her kids’ school. Stacey loves being at Cookie Girl where her edible art gets appreciated momentarily before being devoured joyfully.

Muriel Luzon

has always been involved with fitness through one activity or another and has a non-stop energy that she uses to help others improve their physical well being by teaching boot camp training and spin classes at On1 Studios in Pomona. She is so dedicated to seeing her clients get in shape that she took a seriously obese client into her home to live for months so that she could oversee her strict diet and workout routine in order to get her to drop over 100 pounds and reach a healthier weight. Lozon loves living a healthy, fit lifestyle and takes great joy in seeing her clients become healthier, fitter and happier. She also is a mother living in Rockland County and has a marketing company that also takes up a good portion of her day. Lazon believes in “being very organized” and she prioritizes her day to finish whatever tasks she needs to. As a woman juggling two careers, she gets up early and goes to bed late. Staying fit and eating right is what keeps her energized, which keeps the people in her classes sweating.

Emily Dominguez

Muriel Lozon On 1 Studios

Angela Spina You can say that Angela Spina took to swimming like a fish takes to water. Even though that’s an obvious analogy, it’s still a perfect one since she has been in or on the edges of a pool since she was a child. She spent half of her childhood in the Bronx, half in Rockland County, but mostly in the pool. She made a private swim club team when she was eight and swam for Suffern High Varsity when she was in seventh grade. At age 15, her swimming career was cut short due to an injury that never healed right due to the stress put on her leg from the Angela Spina breast stroke. Instead of giving up the sport she Sea Beast Aquatics loved, she decided she wanted to teach others. Angela opened up her own swim school, Sea Beast Aquatics last year and teaches the proper techniques to swimmers of all levels, from beginners to seniors, to serious triathletes. Her favorite thing about working with kids is seeing how happy they are when they come out of the pool. Spina proudly boasts that “you’ll never lose a love of swimming and once you get the proper technique down, you’ll love it even more.”

Ellen Arkin Strawtown Jewelry

Ellen Arkin

Strawtown Jewelry has become an “institution” in Rockland County because its owner, Ellen Arkin, has always had a flair for creating unique jewelry pieces that can be seen worn by women and girls of all ages in New City. Arkin’s journey in the field of fashion jewelry is a classic success story, born out of taking chances and putting in the time and effort to follow her passion. After graduating from Ramapo High in the early ‘70s, Arkin did a lot of travelling and learned to make jewelry while living in Vermont. She made a cross-country trip armed with a can filled with 2,000 sterling rings and went town-to town selling her individually designed rings to locals. After returning to Rockland County following an injury that took a year to recover, she started going door-to-door and building up a customer base before opening up Strawtown Jewelry. She credits the long-term success of Strawtown Jewelry by “mastering the art of making jewelry first.” Arkin loves working with her young employees and took great pride when one of them learned from her as an entrepreneur and went on to open her own real estate office.

Lynda Piscitelli

loves fashion and helping women style themselves with the right clothes and has turned that passion for fashion into her first Indigo Chic store in 2006, located in Cold Springs. Piscitelli wanted to bring a bit of European charm to the area. She grew up in Rockland and went to FIT to study fashion before working as a shopper Lynda Piscitelli for many years and living and her daughter in Europe with her husIndigo Chic band and family. She was able to expand to four stores with their New City store largely due to ‘word of mouth’ spread through people complimenting her customers on their outfits. Piscitelli has a sophisticated chic style and believes in combing that chic style with comfort. “A lot of women raising kids and working tend to put fashion on the backburner,” she noted and at Indigo Chic she and her staff can point out to people how to style themselves in a comfortable way, while still remaining trendy. “Sometimes all it takes is adding the right belt and jewelry to a t-shirt” to create a cool, comfortable outfit for women of any age, she noted. Piscitelli believes that an “older woman can still style herself without looking old fashioned.” Lynda’s has added her daughter Jessye’s keen eye for fashion to the mix at Indigo Chic and their partnership offers a fresh perspective to customers of all ages.

Emily Dominguez is a proud Rockland County native who serves as a Trustee in Haverstraw and has enjoyed a successful marketing career. She promotes large and small businesses in and around Rockland County through her firm, Blu River Media Group that she started in 2006. Growing up, Ms. Dominguez wanted to be an attorney or a judge but her career took a different path when she got a job in the marketing department of a company in the optical industry while in college. She went on to work for Krups coffee maker and became a marketing manager and later a bridal director. She saw an opportunity for the bridal industry and partnered up with bridal companies to promote appliance products. In her 8 years with Krups she travelled all over the world and got to oversee trade shows and placed products on shows like Ellen. Dominguez has gone on to create bridal programs while working for Bed, Bath and Emily Dominguez Beyond before starting her own business. Blu River Media Group What she loves about marketing and promotion is that Haverstraw Trustee “every day is different,” she said in referring to the needs of her various clients. She learned the importance of community from her mother who was a local reverend and is as passionate in serving the needs of Haverstraw as she is in serving the needs of her clients.

Roxanne Perrone and her family Perronucci’s Delicatessan

Roxanne Perrone

owns and runs Perronucci’s Delicatessen in New City along with her husband Frank, which is usually packed with people who enjoy eating Roxy’s classic Italian dishes almost as much as she loves cooking them. She has always enjoyed cooking, ever since she was a girl and can almost always be found at Perronucci’s, where she makes the people of her community feel like they stepped on to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx or Little Italy in Manhattan, every time they enter her store. She has a double master’s degree from Columbia University in Special Education and Psychology. Before opening Perronucci’s, she dabbled in the food industry for thirteen years when she became the food service director for Gate Hill Day Camp. She then decided to follow her “passion” and open her own business. “Catering is my favorite ‘leg’ of the food business,” she noted. She leans on Frank, a successful business owner in his own right, when she needs help with the business end of Perronucci’s but the food is all Roxy and she is never more relaxed than when cooking for her satisfied customers.

Cindi Weissblatt

Cindi Weissblatt Original Designs

Jill Fried has always had an avid interest in beauty, although before becoming a partner at Melange Med Spa, she started out her professional career as a teen working for a clothing company. She worked her way up to Store Manager and found herself running a 2.2 million dollar store. “I was traveling a lot for the company, and doing a lot of visual merchandising, which I loved,” she noted. After cutting back from the 60 hour a work week pace to have her daughters, she decided to find a career that she truly loved. After signing up for school to be a skin care professional, she quickly Jill Fried realized she loved every aspect of the job. Melange Med Spa “From facials, to make-up, and learning the different technologies, I was hooked,” Fried said. Fried started working at Melange Med Spa, four weeks after it opened and the owner at the time, Christina Sirera, immediately recognized her business savvy and offered Fried a partnership opportunity to build Melange together. They are now the owner and operators of two locations, located in Blauvelt, New York and in Highland Mills, a few minutes from Woodbury Commons. Fried loves working with people and noted that “it makes me feel great to have clients tell me that we made them look or feel great.” The two women, who are both single mothers, have become close friends.

has owned the Original Designs jewelry store with her husband Steve for thirty years and runs her business “like a family,” she noted. She grew up in New City, where her store is located and is proud to see its revitalization project underway. She often takes the time out to counsel students from the local high school or an area college about owning a small business. Weissblatt is as ingrained into the community as her jewelry store and she enjoys taking an active part in hosting community related fundraisers. Weissblatt welcomes her customers as friends and treats the employees the same way. “I contribute our success to hard work, keeping up on all the trends and most importantly offering great customer service, she said.” At her store, there is a “gift for everyone and anyone,” she noted. Weissblatt relishes the opportunity to accessorize a bride or a girl getting ready for the prom with the right piece of jewelry to add a “special touch” to her look, she said. She loves that she gets to help others create their own look and stand out from the crowd. Cindi Weissblatt drives to work with a smile and if you’re doing that you know you’ve taken the right career path.

Christina Sirera

Christina Sirera Melange Med Spa

who is Fried’s partner at Melange Med Spa, is a registered nurse who began her career as an emergency room nurse in Westchester, in 1998. She has a creative side to her and was headed to Tisch School of performing Arts when she had to back out of her program to help care for her ailing mother who was suffering through terminal breast cancer. After turning to nursing, she eventually began to feel “stale” working as a nurse at a hospital and “had a hard time” coping with the loss of patients, she said. Sirera’s turning point in her professional career was when she embraced the field of Aesthetics. After getting certified in different laser procedures, she felt “happier and more fulfilled.” Sirera and her partner Fried lean on each other for support. Christina believes that their children have learned valuable life lessons from their persistence, work ethic and desire to succeed and grow their business. Her best day in the Rockland County location was helping a client who had lost 100 pounds but was depressed over the result which left her with sagging skin and eyes that looked older. After seeing herself in the mirror after a procedure of fillers and Botox, the woman smiled and was taken back with emotion. That reaction captures what Sirera loves about the career she has chosen.

Aging... Gracefully & Losing Weight We all want to age gracefully and live longer. We want to look and feel good, sleep soundly and have optimal brain function. Some may think this is impossible in today’s stressful world, but in my 20 years experience working with Bioidentical Hormones, I get my patients looking and feeling good where they were once fatigued, irritable, had no sex drive, unable to lose weight even with the strictest diet, depressed, anxious, achy, cold, dry skin, wrinkling, and the list goes on.

Senior - Boys Soccer Pearl River High School Local Soccer Star Kicks his way to Italy.

Giovanni Galvano has had a lifelong passion for the sport of soccer that has fueled his non-stop motor on the field as a center mid-fielder for Pearl River High. His innate drive to work on his game and raise it to the next level will soon take him across the ocean to a soccer academy in Italy. With a name like Giovanni Galvano and a father who instilled a love of professional Italian league soccer into him, it seems like fate that Galvano gets a chance to learn from the best in Italy. Galvano grew up in Orangeburg and is finishing up his senior year at Pearl River High, where he relished his responsibilities in getting his teammates involved on offense and defense and being able to “create on the fly,� he noted. Giovanni is described proudly by his coach, Damon O’Keefe, as being “the best skilled player that I have ever coached.� Coach O’Keefe considers Galavano to be an ideal role model as a student athlete and thinks of him as a “genuine great kid, clean cut and with a positive outlook.� Galvano also has played for a travelling club team, the Ramapo Valley Tornados and in a Spanish men’s league, where he competed with and against men much older than him. He considers his strongest qualities to be his technical ability, which enables him to “read and anticipate plays well,� he noted. Playing in a youth academy in Northern Italy is an opportunity the devout catholic and son of an Italian immigrant had a hard time passing up. He was torn between attending Mount Saint Mary, which was a Division 1 school and going to Italy until he got an email notifying him that the school lost their soccer program due to budget cuts. His path to Italy was now a fait accompli and Galvano is looking forward to embarking on the next stage of his life.

• Essential SPOTLIGHT on......

Legislator Ed Day Rockland County holds a special place in my heart. My wife and I are hybrid immigrants to this community, she hailing from the Bronx and I from Brooklyn. Never to disparage my neighbors who are native to the County, Jean and I chose this place - we adopted it as our home some thirty years ago. Rockland was our choice to put roots down and raise a family in. We liked it then, and have grown to love it since. Our involvement in our neighborhood, PTA, youth sports, schools, and civic associations has yielded great gifts - lifelong friends, memories of the many young people who grew alongside our two sons, and many great joys - along with a few inevitable sorrows. Special moments abound, but one confluence stands out. My mind’s eye drifts many years back to being camped out with my neighbors in New City and standing with my sons Chris and Mike, watching them enjoy the annual Memorial Day parade. Parents out there will identify with those special moments; having your young one clasping your pinky finger, bursting with excitement as the fire trucks, police officers, and soldiers march by. I then fast forward to the pride I felt at the 2011 Memorial Day ceremony where Chris, then five years old, now a U.S. Army Captain and veteran of two wars, stood in front of our community as the event’s keynote speaker. Watching him was the first of our next generation, our grandson C.J., while meanwhile Mike was back at Fort Bragg, NC, in training to earn his Green Beret. I reference this chain of events to drive home a point - this is my home, one that I am fiercely protective and proud of. I live here and will likely die here, and these past thirty years tell me that the best is yet to come. I look forward to seeing you in my travels around this county, so we can share memories of our lives here and what makes this County special, and ideas for where we want it to go in the future.
