Thanksgiving Food Drive 2014

NOV.  1  - NOV. 21

for the Interfaith Nutrition Network

COLLECTION AT VILLAGE HALL

The Manhasset High School “Interact Club” (Junior Rotarians), ” Neal’s on Wheels” also a MHS school club that solicits food for the needy all year long, along with the Real Estate Board of Manhasset and Port Washington have launched a Thanksgiving Food Drive for the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN).  

The INN is requesting that we provide non-perishable foods such as:

STUFFING      CANNED YAMS   CRANBERRY SAUCE    CANNED FRUIT   CANNED VEGETABLES (CORN, PEAS, STRING BEANS)   CANNED SOUP    CANNED GRAVY   BOXED MACARONI & CHEESE    BOXED/PACKAGED MASHED POTATOES

FLOWER HILL TRAFFIC SAFETY TASK FORCE

In response to residents’ concerns about speeding and excessive traffic volumes on Manhasset Woods Road, the Village of Flower Hill has formed a Traffic Safety Task Force to address those concerns and, perhaps, traffic issues in the immediately surrounding areas.  Angela Classi and Gabriella Morizio are the co-chairs.  The Task Force will develop a comprehensive approach (that is, no single solution or strategy), because that has proven to be the approach applied by communities with the most successful traffic calming programs.  This approach will rely primarily on education, enforcement and engineering.  Education will focus on changing driver behavior—ie., through education efforts and speed display units.  Enforcement relies on the Police Department to enforce speed limits and other traffic control measures.  Engineering involves using physical measures to calm traffic.  The Village of Flower Hill recognizes that livability and safety issues are of great concern to residents in the other Manhasset villages and is interested in working with those villages toward a town-wide solution.  Contact Angela or Gabriella at, respectively, aclass1@icloud.com and morizio508@gmail.com for more information.

RED FOX SIGHTINGS IN VILLAGE

Many people have reported seeing foxes on their property and around the Village particularly at dawn and dusk. This is a very good thing environmentally speaking.  The foxes are beneficial to us as they feed on mice, rats and insects. In our area, rodents spread Lyme Disease so foxes are a good defense for us.
