  • News: Manhasset Baptist's Remembrance Service

    On Sept. 8, Manhasset Baptist Church organized a Morning of Remembrance and Hope. The Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department's bagpipes and members led a procession at the start of the service, and it became apparent this was going to be a very special day. A full choir and contemporary band then joined in for a blend of traditional hymns and uplifting songs. Excerpts of historic documents and speeches of national importance were read, along with salient Scripture passages. Afterwards, many reported hearts touched and souls stirred by the message and reflective singing. FULL STORY

  • News: Former Manhasset Resident Saves Woman in LIRR Fall

    Early on Friday morning, Aug. 23, commuters were standing on the Long Island Rail Road platform, drinking coffee, reading their newspapers and waiting for the train to New York to arrive. Suddenly a young woman, Sandra Varis, daughter of Evanna and Ennio Varsi of Strathmore Vanderbilt, fell face forward onto the train tracks. She had not put her hands out to brace her fall so she fell hard against the train rail. FULL STORY

  • Sports: On the Bay

    The Cannonball Race, known previously as the Louie's Race, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, with a rain date the following day. This year the venue will be moved to Manhasset Bay Marina, and will be hosted by Guy Lamotta. The competition is open to all who sail and would like to have a little fun on the racecourse. For example, the competitors may be asked to retrieve a bottle from the water with a note inside with the instructions to "sail by the race committee and laud the committee for their wisdom." (truly a difficult task for some racers). For those interested in joining this fun-loving group of sailors, registration is at 11 a.m. on Saturday, followed by the Skippers' meeting at noon. After racing, there will be a buffet, raffles and an award ceremony at 5 p.m. Sailors can pre-register in person at Lamotta's Restaurant, or by e-mail:, or call Karen (516-816-0737) or Widge (877-635-9148) with the make, model, and length of boat, plus the name of the skipper. The Louie's Cup, which has been a tradition on the bay for 17 years, was the brainchild of, among others, Dick Zwerlein, past owner of Louie's Shore Restaurant, who felt there was too much seriousness in sailboat racing. So come out to Manhasset Bay Marina on the last Saturday in September for a very fun race - and keep Dick Zwerlein's memory alive. FULL STORY
