Winthrop-University Hospital recently applauded the selfless devotion of its many volunteers and Auxiliary members at a luncheon that featured the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Winthrop Auxiliary and the Volunteer Service Awards Ceremony. The event was a celebration of the men and women who have donated thousands of hours of time, compassion and energy to help make Winthrop a warm and welcoming place of healing for the Long Island community.
Coaches in Garden City Public Schools recently received the latest tool designed to help them teach the young athletes on their teams: a lollipop. "You stick it in your mouth any time an official makes a bad call against your team and you're on the verge of losing control," Athletic Director Nancy Kalafus said. "A lollipop might also come in handy when a coach is tempted to try to correct an athlete at a moment when he or she is not going to be receptive to the comment."
