Letter: Locust Valley FD Operation Wounded Warrior Pasta Dinner

The 5th Annual Operation Wounded Warrior Pasta Dinner raised a total of $72,520 this year.

This year, once again, we owe a special debt of gratitude to our friends at the Glen Cove Mansion Hotel and managing director, Ata A. Kashanian, for their very generous donation of rooms and meals to some visiting injured troops. The injured troops were so touched by the welcome they received by the Glen Cove Mansion Hotel, Glen Cove Matinecock Rod and Gun Club, Glen Cove Golf Course, local restaurants including Locust Valley Tavern and Bayville’s Twin Harbors that they look forward to making a return visit some day. As usual, our event would not be successful or possible if it were not for the generous donations of local and neighboring businesses and also some very generous close friends of OWW. We hope that you will take another minute to read the following names and consider availing of their services in the near future. Please thank them for their continued support of our injured troops.”

Special thanks to the following: Master Chef Pete Morris and his entire family; the Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club; LV Reformed Church and St. Gertrude’s of Bayville for their tables and chairs; the Locust Valley High School Interact club members for their help on the day; and to the numerous other individuals who personally donated gifts and prizes.

To the chiefs and the members of LVFD and their spouses and families, thank you for your hard work in the days and weeks leading up to the event.

News

Some people deserve a long obituary: in a way, it is a tribute to the number of people’s lives they have touched, so for Dottie Brandt, it is a given. A long line of mourners stretched down the street from the Francis P. DeVine Funeral Home, in Oyster Bay, where Dorothy R. Brandt, known to everyone as “Dottie,” was laid to rest, soon after her death on Friday, Sept. 12.

Dottie was a beautiful woman that age couldn’t change. When your warmth, spirit and love come from the inside, it keeps the outside looking bright and fresh. Dottie was always smiling, full of energy and always willing to help people.

The music was rocking and everybody was dancing on Friday, Oct. 3 in the St. Dominic High School gymnasium as the school hosted its Fall Ball dance. The event included gregarious kids from St. Dominic’s dancing and socializing with 20 disadvantaged children from St. Christopher-Ottilie Family of Services in Sea Cliff.

“St. Dom’s is very active with St. Christopher-Ottilie during the school year,” said Janice Seaman, who was the party coordinator and one of many volunteers at the dance, which ran from 7 to 10 p.m. “This was the first time, though, that St. Dom’s invited the kids from St. Christopher-Ottilie to their school for a dance and it is a great way to bring some normalcy into these children’s lives and show them what a school function is like.”

5- and 6-year-old Peanuts

The Little Generals (Peanuts) stepped out into the cold Sunday morning ready to give the home crowd a show as they battled the Bellmore Braves, and that’s just what they did as the Generals beat the Braves 14-7. The teams battled to a first half tie as the Generals’ touchdown came on a 26-yard run by Kody Gehnrich, thanks to great blocks by John (Jack) Grace and Jack Symanski.

In the second half, where the Generals are usually at their best, the defense shut out the Braves as Rodney Hill, Jr. and Brandon Babel stepped in on the defense line to create a great push to allow Francesco Allocca to make eight tackles. The offense got a big boost with Allocca being allowed to play RB after playing QB the past two games, and boy did he respond behind great lead blocking from Luca Granito. Allocca carried the ball nine times for 60 yards and a TD coming on the last play of the game.

The Diane Whipple Foundation with the cooperation of Manhasset PAL, Manhasset School District and St. Mary’s High School Athletic program has announced a premier College Division I Women’s Lacrosse Scrimmage day on Saturday, Oct. 18.

Competing in this great event will be Columbia, Fairfield, Michigan, Sacred Heart, Stonybrook, UCONN, UMASS, and USC.
