Golf Tournament Benefits Boys & Girls Club

Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club held their Annual Golf Tournament, named for the late World Golf Hall of Famer Joseph C. Dey Jr., on Monday, May 6, at Meadow Brook Club in Jericho. Hugh R. O’Kane, President of Hugh O’Kane Electric Company, chaired this year’s event.

“This year’s outing was an overwhelming success due to the tremendous support from both our corporate and personal friends. We attracted a sold-out crowd across a broad spectrum from both the Long Island and New York City communities,” said O’Kane. “We are thankful to all those that both attended and supported our outing this year.”

The 18-hole tournament comprised of 26 foursomes. First Low Gross Team winners were Nick Berens, Tim Grant, Stuart Katzoff and Sam Zarou. The Second Low Gross Team winners included Liz Berens, Wendy Havens, Amy Lane and Becky DeKeranguy. The First Low Calloway Team consisted of Joe Conroy, Sal Ciavirella, Sander Gjokaj and Steve Murphy and the Second Low Calloway Team included Jerry Firestone, Carmine Lippolis, Chris Francis and Ray Harold.  

The Ladies Long Drive winner was Amy Lane and the Men’s Long Drive winner was Shar Aghili.  The Closest to Pin was Frank Mistero at 6’3” who was also the winner of the 50/50 raffle. Mistero generously donated his portion of the winnings back to the club.

A dinner followed the tournament. 2012 Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year Kewan Beebe spoke about how the club changed his life. 2013 Youth of the Year Yaqarah Letellier also attended to exemplify the important role the Club plays to the children of the community, especially during their formative years.

“I didn’t know I needed my own Teddy Bear,” said a woman after the first annual Teddy’s Taste of the West dinner and fundraiser at Canterbury Ales on March 19.

Members were given an authentic Teddy Bear as a surprise gift at the end of the evening. As they say, membership has its privileges and that includes a June 11 event when Ken Burns will come to share a preview of his new film on three Roosevelts. Burns’ film explores the political and family ties between President Theodore Roosevelt, President Franklin Roosevelt and his wife, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, a Roosevelt in her own right.  

The preliminary 2014-15 school budget was adopted at last Tuesday night’s Oyster Bay-East Norwich school board meeting. The proposed budget, which came in at a figure of $54,578,478, is a 2.01 percent difference from the 2013-14 final budget figure of $53,504,111. With a budget to budget change of $1,074,367, it is the lowest expenditure increase in the last 15 years. No programs were cut as a result of balancing this budget.

“The biggest change in budget numbers is in the area of salaries and wages with a budget to budget increase of $683,428,” said School Superintendent Dr. Laura Seinfeld.

Muttontown resident and Kellenberg freshman Ceara Ann Conroy has been named an All-League athlete for Girls Winter Track. The title of All-League is awarded to athletes based on a vote of all the coaches in the NSCHSAA League. All of the Girls Winter Track coaches in the league vote based on the athletes performance during the season, and Conroy’s outstanding performance has earned her the title of All League this year.

The Girls Varsity Lacrosse program at Oyster Bay High School is just in its second year and already it is making a difference. Senior defender Danielle Maggi has committed to play Division III lacrosse at Albright College.

Last year Maggi was recognized as the “Most Improved Player,” and this year she is being recruited to play in college.

Maggi said, “We did very well in our first varsity season last year (12-2). This year we are 100 percent going for the conference. I’m excited we finally have a varsity team.”
