Tree Lighting Heralds the Holidays
On an evening that spoke more of spring than of December, the Manhasset Park District and the Town of North Hempstead celebrated Manhasset's annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, Dec. 7. The Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion Post #304 led off with the Pledge of Allegiance under the direction of Commander Edward J. Gaus. Rev. James Brown Only, senior minister of The Congregational Church of Manhasset gave the invocation, remembering especially those who perished on Sept. 11.
Flower Hill Village Meeting
Calling himself "both privileged and proud" to serve with her, Mayor Jim Damacus accepted the resignation of Trustee Ann Frankel at this month's meeting of the Village of Flower Hill. A standing ovation accompanied the mayor's reading of a Proclamation that chronicled Ms. Frankel's time of service. Citing family and other commitments as reasons for the action, Trustee Frankel, who was scheduled to run for re-election in March of 2002, graciously accepted the Proclamation as she stepped down from the position she has held since 1996. A longtime activist within the community, Frankel has overseen the planting of the village traffic islands, assisted in the design of Village Hall grounds and served as the village arborist, a position that the board has asked her to continue with. Replacing her on the board is Dr. Milton Parker, another longtime resident, who most currently serves on the village's board of zoning and appeals. Diane Turner will fill his vacated BZA position.
