Tribute to Perry Como Continues With Exciting Events at Library
Following possibly one of the highest accolades this town can lavish on an honoree, Pride in Port's Renaming of Main Street during PIP week in October in this town, Perry Como continues to receive well-earned tributes in the place where he resided from l945 through l970. His latest fond remembrance, he died in 2001 just before his 89th birthday, is an exciting and nostalgic exhibit at Port's world class library, in its Media Center, on the lower level. Memorabilia celebrating his career includes 78s, LPs and CDs, magazine covers, production photographs from Como's television show, reminiscences of friends, pictures of his Flower Hill home and other souvenirs. The committee was even able to wrest his 1955 Emmy, temporarily, for the exciting exhibit. Perry's soft tones and soothing songs are played in the exhibit section of the library.

On the Bay
Frostbiting results have become available for Sunday, March 24. According to Herb Schmidt, Race Committee chair, the wind was blowing 14-16 knots, with gusts reaching the low 20's. By 2:15 p.m., the Race Committee decided to move the racing closer to shore, as it was "too gusty to be on the bay." RC retired to the end of the Manhasset Bay dock, and ran three "no jibe" courses. By the end of the third race, winds were gusting to 26, so racing was canceled for the day. No boats overturned. Results for the day: 1. #536, Pedro Lorson/Mimi Berry, 2. #531, John Browning/Louise Browning, 3. #511, Dana Schnipper/Stephanie Baas. As usual, the competition was tight, with only a one-point difference between first and second place.
