Port Washington Honors Veterans Lost
As children smiled and waved American flags, adults reclined on beach chairs, sipping coffee, others readied cameras, and quite a few lined the parade route with their canine friends, the annual Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 28 proceeded, as stirring as ever. When the parade ended at the Sousa band shell on lower Main Street, a meaningful observance followed, reminding all why those American men and women who lost their lives serving their country, must never be forgotten.
Ayhan Gets a Bad Break(out)
Ayhan Hassan and Port Washington have enjoyed a wonderful relationship for the past twenty something years. Over that time, locals have watched him turn a simple snack bar into three hugely popular restaurants on lower Main Street (Shish-Kebab, Fish-Kebab, and the Mediterranean Market). And, in addition to bringing revenue and out-of-town spenders to this lovely seaside town, he has beautified lower Main Street, making it a charmingly quaint and interesting destination for many.
Boys Varsity Lacrosse Team Ends Season and Looks Toward Next Year
The Boys Varsity Lacrosse team's season ended with a 14-9 loss to Wantagh (a team that ultimately beat the number one team in the county to take the Nassau County Conference B title). The Vikings gave it a good shot and, despite trailing 8-2 at the half, gave the Warriors a scare with a strong second half at the conference semifinals "on the turf" at Hofstra University.
Over the Memorial Day weekend three of Port's four U11 Boys teams played in a rainy tournament in Commack.
