Christ Church Has What the Manhasset Arts and Cultural Center Wants
The Rev. David Lowery is pastor of Christ Episcopal Church, incorporating, possibly, the most distinctive structures in Manhasset. Built in 1930 to be a satellite school for the Manhasset School District at a time Manhasset was growing tremendously, it was, Lowery said, unfortunately, never used as such for during the depression the town's growth stabilized. Located at 1355 Northern Boulevard, the church's capacity is 200 and the nearby parish house is 22,400 square feet. Following WW II the town enjoyed tremendous growth again and Munsey Park Elementary School was built. Lowery noted, "Since 1947 we have been trying to figure out what to do with the building."

St Mary's Seventh Grade Boys' CYO Basketball Team
St Mary's seventh grade boys' CYO basketball team hosted St Aidan's on Sunday in the first round of the CYO playoffs. The teams have been rivals in CYO Hoops for over 30 years and yesterday was evidence that the rivalry is still going strong! The teams battled back and forth right from the start and it became apparent that neither team was going to back down in the contest. At halftime St Aidan's had the advantage 21-16 but they knew they had their work cut out for them. The third period was intense with St Mary's guards, Jonathan Thomas, Matt Woop, Andrew Procaccino, Mike Heenan and John Prufeta applying relentless pressure to their opponents while Jason Chiu, Matt LoBello, Nick Melanthiou, Jake Kinsley and Conor Golden defended and battled the bigger St Aidan's players under the boards. The war continued throughout the fourth period with unbelievable drives to the basket and clutch shots galore from both sides.
