Unsung Bay Ridge: A community stalwart


Our unsung hero for this week is Clorinda Annarummo; someone who has given her time and resources to the well-being of our community for many years.

Clorinda had served as a BRAVO Ambulance personnel officer for many years; having worked as a dispatcher and fundraiser. Clorinda founded and served as head of her block association. She helped with the creation of the Bay Ridge/Bensonhurst Business Alliance, while serving as chief of staff for State Senator Robert DiCarlo.

She raised sons who also contribute to the community: KennethDavidMichael Grimm’s staff.


It is always difficult to say goodbye to someone who has been an active contributor to the Bay Ridge community. Sal D’Amato

I remember the days when Sal was a big contributor to charity functions in Bay Ridge. He loved to purchase and give the raffle tickets to others. Sal was a past recipient of the Bay Ridge Community Council Civic Award for his contributions to the community. We will always remember Sal as a warm and friendly man.

Congratulations to BRAVO for celebrating 40 years of free, life-saving service within our community. Founder Hank Vogt is gone but his legacy lives on in this ambulance service.


A folk remedy for ulcers, indigestion or heartburn is to mix two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with the white of an organic raw egg. Sip this mixture several times per day for fast relief.

If you cannot bear the thought of ingesting raw egg white; you may use the olive oil, which would also give relief. It is great for strengthening a thin stomach lining. People who cannot drink wine, eat fruit, spicy foods, or anything acidic without discomfort may find the olive oil a great folk remedy.

Please consult your doctor if you have any health concerns, or on any medication.
