Good to Go for Salem School
Board member Robert Seiden's face, sunburned except where he'd been wearing his sunglasses, was evidence that the summer's final board of education meeting was little more than an interruption in people's vacations.
On The Bay
The sailing community lost a very dear friend last month. Norman Geller, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma last April, succumbed to this dreaded disease in August. Norm, who was known throughout our sailing world here on Manhasset Bay, was a member of the Port Washington YC and active in the Port Washington Library's Nautical Center. If you had the good luck to encounter Norm, usually on or near the water, he could change whatever kind of day you were having into a great day. After spending a moment with Norm, with him capturing your attention with either a good joke, or just a regular story that somehow he managed to make funny, the day would brighten and you would find yourself smiling for the rest of the day. Norm had that effect on people - his happy outlook was contagious. This year, the Leukemia Cup Regatta is dedicated to our friend who was a member of the Port Washington YC and an active with the Leukemia Cup Regatta for years as a member of the Race and Marketing Committee. The Regatta Committee wanted to recognize Norm's love for the sport of sailing and honor his spirit and dedication to the Leukemia Cup Regatta and is naming the event and trophy in his honor.
