It was truly a community wide weekend in Manhasset last Saturday and Sunday. We breathed a sigh of relief as we saw early morning clouds disperse on Saturday and give way to the sunshine we always hope for for the Fair. This Saturday, the day began even earlier than did the SCA Fair. Clean-Up Day at Whitney Pond Park began at 9 a.m. We will have pictures of that wonderful event next week. It was an inspiration to see people from toddlers to their grandparents working to help revitalize what could truly be a jewel in the crown of our town. With its basketball courts, tennis courts, playground and picnic areas, to say nothing of its two pools, it offers great promise for the community this summer and it shines like a jewel after Saturday's work. Then it was off to the SCA Fair. What more can we say than that it was up to its usual standard, which is just about the best it could be. Something for everyone should be the motto. Once again the children will benefit. Finally on Sunday, there was the dedication of the Munsey Park Women's Club Garden of Hope, dedicated to those who lost their lives on September 11. (For that story, see today's Manhasset special section.) It looked as if it would be planted in the pouring rain but we got lucky once again and the ceremonies went off beautifully. All three events required a great deal of cooperation and advance planning from a great many people. To all of them, we express our gratitude and the gratitude of all of us who are the beneficiaries of their generosity.
