Library Trustee: DiCamillo vs. Morrill
Both candidates for the position as trustee on the Great Neck Library Board currently held by William Morrill were interviewed by phone. As Marietta DiCamillo also served as a trustee some five years ago, both candidates discussed the position with specificity. We asked each candidate what he or she would do differently if they knew then what they know now. Ms. DiCamillo said that she would not get sidetracked by bickering over minor matters and would keep the big picture in mind. Mr. Morrill said that he would have urged the board to better publicize each step in the planning process and that further he would not have voted on a specific plan so quickly and would have waited until there was time for community input.

Hadassah members flocked to the recent 15th annual Golf, Tennis and Games Day held at the Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success. Close to 350 women attended this event on a glorious summery day to enjoy their special game, be it golf, tennis, Mah Jong or bridge, or to just come and enjoy a bountiful luncheon. The theme Generation to Generation held as local honorees were philanthropic family members who have supported Hadassah through the generations and, in fact, can boast that four generations of the family are life members in Hadassah. Gloria Landsberg, a resident of Great Neck and member of the Great Neck Chapter, and her daughters Karen Seltzer, a resident of Port Washington and member of the Sandsport/Shoshana Chapter, and Ruth Suzman, a resident of Scarsdale and Hadassah member in Scarsdale, are major donors and all active not only in Hadassah but in their local communities. They all believe in the importance of philanthropy and involvement in community, school and synagogue. They are truly excellent role models for each generation with their combined efforts in a multitude of volunteer activities. The honorees were presented with certificates and flower bouquets by Nassau Region President Frieda Rosenberg who lauded their commitment and dedication.
