A Sad Day For Town’s Canines

Written by Karen Talley Thursday, 13 March 2014 00:00

For Susan Hassett it wasn’t over until the last dog barks.

 

That was Feb. 27, when she closed the door on the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter for the last time as its director.

 

It has been a long run for Hassett. She started working at the shelter, which is tucked at the end of a winding avenue in Port Washington, for 36 years and has been its director for the last 25.

 

But now it is time to go; it’s just too difficult to stay. “Emotionally, it’s very, very hard,” Hassett said. “I need to find some peace.” A successor has not been named.

Harmony High To Local Seniors

Written by The Illustrated News Editorial Staff Thursday, 20 February 2014 00:00

Fifth-grade students from Center Street Elementary School in Williston Park, under the direction of teachers Madeleine Maier and MaryEllen Guarini, performed Harmony High at the Herrick Community Center for the senior citizens in the district on Feb. 6.

 

The students had been practicing for the last five months, learning songs and dance routines. They learned skills that allowed them to overcome shyness and build self-confidence by playing a variety of characters on stage. The theme of the show, “We
all try to get along because life is a beautiful song,” teaches great lessons about friendship and acceptance of differences. Students worked before and after school and during lunch recess to perfect their singing and dancing. 

 

The visit to the senior citizens was a reminder of the special link students have with the community. Later the students went into the audience to talk  to attendees.
