A 'New' Day Has Begun
Dec. 14 marked a new day in New Cassel. A day more than 20 years in the making and one that so many had only dreamed of seeing come to fruition. It was on this day that residents, civic leaders and members of various community organizations filled the First Baptist Church of Westbury to capacity in honor of the official groundbreaking ceremony for the New Cassel Revitalization Project.
Athletic Events Scheduled
The following is a list of athletic events from Thursday, Dec. 23 through Wednesday, Dec. 29 at Carle Place Middle/High School:
Wheatley Boys Soccer Captures NYS Championship
The Wheatley School Varsity Boys Soccer Team capped an undefeated season with a 3-0 victory over Westhill High School to earn the school's second New York State Championship title. The season actually began last May with the tragic death of Craig Grumet, a junior at Wheatley, who broke into the starting lineup as a freshman defender and who was to have been team captain during his upcoming senior year. Team members, all of whom had been childhood friends of Craig and teammates in the local youth soccer program, dedicated their season to Craig's memory.
