The Manhasset School District and the Board of Education (BOE) held a meeting on March 29 that focused predominately on budget cuts in the foreign language and drama departments. Each scheduled board of education meeting includes a discussion of specific areas and specific programs being cut and the turnout at many meetings has been large and passionate. A general occurrence at the meetings has been individuals addressing the board to plead for programs targeted for cuts while not many hard questions about the overall budget are asked.
If you have had enough of this long winter and dubious spring, we recommend that you visit the newest shop in town, Country Club Couture, just east of the corner of Plandome Road and Park Avenue. An explosion of color greets the customer as she enters the new shop. It's the Palm Beach look transplanted to Manhasset and it is very welcome. The Haghani brothers, David and Afshin, own two other fashion boutiques in town--Gallery Couture and Junior Couture. They have carried designs by Pulitzer in their other stores and seen that they were much in demand by their customers so they decided to open a new boutique that would be devoted to this line.
