Plandome Manor Voices Concerns to Plandome
On Aug. 9, the Plandome Board of Zoning Appeals welcomed residents of neighboring Plandome Manor to their rehearing ordered by the Supreme Court of New York to debate the issue of the reconstruction of Plandome Country Club's First Tee facility. The Supreme Court ordered this hearing because the BZA voted on the Club's variance without receiving approval from the Nassau County Planning Commission. In late January of this year, Plandome Country Club received a variance and a building permit for this construction, which is in direct view of five homes on Circle Drive. Unfortunately, these Circle Drive homeowners were not made aware of the building of this "factory-like" structure. As a result, these residents are now actively involved in expressing their discontent with this building.

Strathmore Swimmers Bring Home the Gold
Strathmore Vanderbilt Country Club's swim team brought home the gold on Saturday, Aug. 4. For the first time in 19 years, Strathmore was undefeated in the dual meets and the winner at the championships. Coached by Lauren Gilhooley, Erin McNally and Karen Larkin and the club's athletic director, Danny Gimpel, this year truly proved a team effort.
