Red Stocking Revue 2004 Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary
Thirty-two years ago Port Washington-Manhasset Chapter of Cancer Care volunteers bravely embarked on a new adventure into fundraising for the benefit of cancer patients and their families. Looking for something new and exciting that would invite public participation and contributions they came upon the idea of a stage show utilizing their own and local talents. The idea was all about friends and neighbors entertaining friends and neighbors, having a good laugh at one another and enjoying the talents of one another. It seemed like a fun way of raising money. Early spring was chosen as the time, Schreiber High School auditorium the place and the group pooled their talents to run the gamut of theatrical production, staging, writing, choreographing, performing and administering this bold adventure. Red Stocking #1 was a smashing success. A mix of music, comedy, skits and stage ads, it lives up to its goal. The audience was entertained, people laughed at and with one another and funds went to Cancer Care Inc. for their free programs and aid to cancer patients and their families.
Local College Soccer Standouts Finish Careers
The year was 1988. That spring, two sets of young parents, Kevin and Barbara Dermody, and Dominick and Luciana Lavacca, bring their only sons to the children's first practice that year of the Port Washington Soccer Club. No one thought then that this would spawn a friendship of families and star athletes that would follow both boys through their senior year of NCAA collegiate competition.
On The Bay
Last Sunday, March 7, was cold and windy in the early morning hours. By the time our frostbiters were at the starting line, the wind had diminished somewhat, but not the cold weather. With Manhasset Bay a bit choppy, skippers and crew were in for a very wet day of sailing. The wind was strong enough for Race Committee to consider setting a "no jibe" course, but the wind held at an acceptable level for five races without setting the safety course. When it cranked up at the end of the fifth race, RC called it a day and sent the sailors to shore. No complaints were heard from the teams, as it was a bitterly cold day on the water. Ted Toombs and Matt Cornachio, on #514, were first for the day. There was a tie for second place, between Matt Kelley/Lynn Kochendorfer (#603) and Steve Moore/Lois Moore (#510), which was broken in favor of Kelly/Kochendorfer as they had two first place finishes to Moore/Moore's one, giving #603 second place and #510 a third for the day.
