King Kullen Plans Still on Hold
Now that Waldbaum's has been closed for two months, many residents of Manhasset are finding their grocery shopping inconvenient. Certainly there are alternatives, but most people would like to see a full-service supermarket in town. One Munsey Park resident says that she finds she has to make long-range plans to get her shopping done. "I have to try to figure out if I have some reason to be in Port Washington so I can shop there," she says. A North Strathmore woman told the Manhasset Press that she has to plan to spend at least two extra hours a week doing her shopping. A Flower Hill mother of four says she goes to Trunz for her groceries, Whole Foods for her produce and organic juices and milk, the delicatessen for cold cuts and a butcher for meat.
Manhasset Post 304 Supports Blue Star Banners
Manhasset Post 304 of the American Legion is joining with the American Legion nationwide to bring back the Blue Star Service Banner. The Blue Star Service Banner was designed and patented in 1917 by World War I Army Captain Robert L. Queissner of the 5th Ohio Infantry who had two sons serving on the front lines. It quickly became the unofficial symbol of a child in the service.
