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

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.

Snouder’s Corner Drugstore is up for sale by Laffey Fine Homes. Patrick J. Valente, licensed associate broker said, “I just showed it yesterday morning to an interested buyer.” He said the asking price is $995,000, “just short of a million” and added, “everything’s negotiable today.”

Valente said, “It’s a great building, a town landmark and it does need work. It would be great for retail and maybe offices are a possibility. The heating plant is working and the taxes are a little under $40,000.”


Sports

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.”
