Cutting Edge Philanthropy
There was excitement, a blinding array of hockey jerseys and smiles all around, in spite of some pretty nasty falls, at the ice skating party held January 26 hosted by Tuesday's Children, a non-profit committed to the children of 9/11. The hugely successful event, sponsored by the Manhasset branch of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, was held at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn/North Hills. Present were members of the WTC Family Counseling Center (WTC) as well as four members of the New York Islanders hockey team-Eric Cairns, Roman Hamrlik, Mark Parrish and Jason Blake. The children, and many parents too, could line up for autographs then skate with the players. There was no rough checking last week--the players were warm and charming whether posing for photographs or skating with the children.
New Era of Town Government in North Hempstead
In his first State of the Town message, North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman focused on three major issues for his first year--technology, community based planning and business development. Speaking before the League of Women Voters of Port Washington-Manhasset, Kaiman first introduced the members of the town board, each now representing an individual district: Robert Troiano Jr. who represents New Cassel, Westbury and Carle Place; Tom Dwyer, who represents Roslyn, Greenvale,East Williston, Williston Park, Albertson and Searingtown; Angelo Ferrara, who represents New Hyde Park, Mineola and Garden City Park; Wayne Wink, representing parts of Great Neck, Manhasset, Plandome and Roslyn; Tony D'Urso, who represents parts of Great Neck, Herricks and New Hyde Park; Fred Pollack, whose district includes Port Washington, parts of Plandome and Flower Hill.
Manhasset Indoor Track Team Wins Conference
It was hard to tell whether or not Manhasset won the Conference 5 title. There were no celebratory jogs around the 160m-gym floor track. There were no jubilant cries of victory, of relief that they had won, nor did they exult in their personal accomplishments, which were by no means seldom. Rather, they took on the character of their coach by simply acknowledging their victory, and walking out of the building with a sense of personal satisfaction. It was a prime example of a team shooting for bigger and better things.
Win Streak Ends...Title Hopes Remain
The Manhasset Boys Swim team's win streak of five consecutive meets came to an end in a closely disputed contest with the Massapequa Chiefs. Earlier in the week, the Indians guaranteed themselves a chance at a conference crown by defeating the Wantagh Warriors 110-73.
