Unsung Bay Ridge: A local whirlwind


This week, I’d like to honor a very special lady in our community. Mae Dunn is better known as the other half of veteran affairs activist Howie Dunn.

For over 60 years, Mae has been spearheading various patriotic causes with her husband. She is a leader in the American Legion Auxiliary, representing Amity Post members.

Mae is part of their song and dance team that entertains at churches and senior centers. They raise money for charities, veterans and wounded warriors. She also works side by side with Howie in the Bay Ridge Community Council.

Mae is actively involved in her ‘Our Lady of Angels’ parish. Married for 63 years, she continues to volunteer wherever needed. Her contributions make a difference in many lives and we are proud to have her as a member of the Bay Ridge community.

The health benefits of cabbage are legendary. They include treatment for constipation when eaten daily as a cole slaw or salad.

It is one of the tried and proven methods for stomach ulcers when juiced. Drink about four ounces of cabbage juice twice per day for three days. Intestinal problems usually yield to its power.

It also purifies the blood and removes toxins. Cabbage is also said to reduce jaundice, arthritis, gout, eye disorders and heart disease. Steamed cabbage is said to have cholesterol-lowering benefits.

Please consult your doctor if you are ill or on any medication.
