On Friday night, during the storm, my car was stuck on a hill on Dogwood and Manhasset Woods Road. It was snowing, getting progressively worse and I was about to create a major traffic problem. Four or five high school students appeared and proceeded to shovel the snow and push my car over a hill. It took all of them at least 20 minutes of hard work to get me free and on my way. I told them I would walk back and pay them for their efforts. When I got back they were gone.
It is a testament to these fine young men that they acted, not for financial gain, but out of a sense of kindness. It is because of these small acts that I enjoy living in Manhasset. The parents and teachers of these gentlemen have done a magnificent job in raising them. I am truly appreciative and I will not forget their efforts.
