Stuart Clark of the Manhasset Community Reformed Church, members of youth organizations of our local churches and temples met at The Manhasset-Great Neck EOC (Economic Opportunity Council) building on High Street last Saturday morning. The local EOC hopes to begin a major renovation of the building within the next two weeks and the young volunteers came to clean up the gymnasium before the work begins.
