Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Takes Charity to New Depths
Scott Muller has always dreamed of hiking the Grand Canyon. When he was given the opportunity to do so--and help others in the process--he got his wish and then some. Muller is one of 30 volunteers chosen by the Long Island Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to participate in its Hike For Discovery this May 20. Each member is trying to raise at least $3,700, for which the proceeds will go toward cancer aid and research. This is the second year that the LLS is doing the program, but it is the inaugural season for the Long Island Chapter.

Over The Hill Softball Report
Play Ball! The Over the Hill Gang opened up its 2006 season Friday, May 5 to a fine spring night, plenty of family and friends and two newly refurbished ball fields. Among those present was the OTHG's special friend and longtime supporter, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto, who graciously accepted president Jim Reilly's invitation to come and toss out the ceremonial first pitch. The league would also like to extend its appreciation and thanks for all the time, effort and expense the Town has expended in refurbishing the entire park over the past few years. Allen Park is now a very special jewel for the entire community to enjoy.
