North Shore Presbyterian Church Celebrates 50th Anniversary
The North Shore Presbyterian Church is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The church, located at 275 Lakeville Road in Great Neck, officially became a Presbyterian Church on Sept. 26, 1954. The Congregation has been celebrating its 50th anniversary over a several month period with special events.
Great Neck Estates Rezoning Follow-up
On Aug. 9, the mayor and trustees of Great Neck Estates held a special meeting to hear the desires of the residents regarding a preliminary request to rezone a commercial property to multi-family housing. One of the properties in question was 212-230 Middle Neck Road, which is located between the Shell station and North Clover Drive. The turnout for the meeting filled village hall with people standing in the back.
Up the River With a Paddle!
The Scouts and leaders of Great Neck Scout Troop 10 had their skills tested in an exciting journey down the Lehigh River in the Poconos. Paddling through Class III (high level) rapids, along a 12-mile stretch, the Scouts proved their seamanship by traversing the entire route in flexible rubber rafts without a single dunking. Shown in the picture are Alexander Yee, David Titan, Jake Horn, Robert Kupferberg, Mark Kupferberg, Steve Titan, Noah Belanich, Douglas Whitehorn, Polly Whitehorn and Dwight Rosenstein.
Great Neck Cleats Update
The Great Neck Cleats (Girls U-13) improved to .500 (3-3-3) with an inspired 2-0 shutout of first place, previously unbeaten Island Park Freedom. Emily Rothkrug scored both of Great Neck's goals, the second resulting from beautiful assists from Rachel Frank, Hayley Permut and Kelsey Cooper. Despite missing two starters, the Cleats' defense played another strong game, and goalie Haley Finkelstein made several key saves to preserve the victory.
Congratulations to Our Re-elected State Legislators!
