Six Fire Departments Save House of Worship and School
On Monday Oct. 23, the peace and quiet of the Village of Plandome was disturbed by an alarm called in to its fire department at 11:08 a.m. It was from an employee of the Reconstructionist Synagogue and School at 1001 Plandome Road reporting a basement fire. The fact that young children attended the religious school made the call even more compelling.

Gales Leads the Gaels
Jessica Gales notched 12 points, the first of her nascent career, as St. Mary's sixth grade hoop team coached by Frank Coughlin, Kevin Conway and Jeff Molinari breezed to a 41-23 besting of St. Thomas the Apostle in Nassau-Suffolk CYO Friday night action. Not a seat could be found so the crowd of 35 stood or simply sat on the hardwood, as the undefeated Gaels secured the second triumph of the young season by virtue of their tenacious defense.
On the Bay
In March of this year, the Morris Yacht & Beach Club on City Island, NY was destroyed by fire. Virtually everything was lost. For several years, Morris has been the host club of the Fordham University Sailing Team. To assist the club in its rebuilding efforts, the Fordham team is soliciting burgee donations from yacht clubs around the world. To date, 74 such burgees have been received. Most have come from the USA but the club has received burgees from as far away as France, Ireland and Bermuda. If you would be willing to donate a burgee from your club, a size 12" x 18" is best. If you don't know if your burgee has been donated already, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put MORRIS BURGEES in the Subject so your message won't be deleted by accident. If you know the burgee has not been donated, mail it to Coach Joe Sullivan, Fordham University Sailing Team, c/o Mike Roberts, Director of Club Sports, Vincent T. Lombardi Memorial Center, Fordham University, Bronx, NY 10458.
