Boy Scout Troop 7 Celebrates 90th Anniversary
At a recent Boy Scout Troop 7 meeting, a panel of local community leaders enthusiastically shared memories of their own Scouting experiences. The meeting was one of the events connected with the 90th anniversary celebration of the Port Washington-based troop, which is Long Island's oldest continuously chartered troop. The Scouts were eager to listen and to question the alumni about how things were "in the good old days." Rocco Gibaldi, scoutmaster, said, "The boys want to meet and get to know the former Scouts. They want to know how Scouting has changed and how it's the same."
Library Budget Defeated
This year's library annual budget vote produced a highly unusual result: voters defeated it 445 to 345. Going back 30 years to 1973, the only other time in its history the budget was defeated was in 1993, after the scandal of the then-library director occurred.
On The Bay
After a very long winter, Mother Nature proved that she did not forget us. The wait was worth every minute, as she outdid herself in providing a spectacular weekend. Both days were warm with sunny skies, and a wonderful breeze that caressed our faces. Thoughts of sailing in near and far harbors were utmost in every sailor's mind, and an impatience set in as we all were eager to finish preparing our boats and take that long-awaited first sail of the year. To add a final touch to the beautiful picture that Mother Nature provided us, several boats were seen sailing out on Manhasset Bay, and there were model boats sailing on the Mill Pond. Spring is finally here for good, bringing longer days, warmer weather, and hope for a safe, exciting and enjoyable sailing season with good winds on our bay and Long Island Sound.
Port Baseball Looks For Great Season
The Port Boys Baseball spent the off-season contemplating. They worked out hard in the gym, had open gym tosses and even some early batting practice in the cold of winter. Now as the heat has gone up, so have the hopes of Viking baseball, in their quest for a Nassau County championship. With a very respectable 3-2 record, the Port boys have gotten off on the right foot against very talented opponents, which illustrates the strides the team has made over the course of one year.
