The Manhasset Booster Club invites you to the Fourth Biennial Manhasset Booster Club Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Manhasset High School Gymnasium.

This year’s Hall of Fame inductees are Daniel Denihan, Jr, Tom Emma, Glen Mueller, Vanessa Bagnato Scrafford, Jay Stranahan and Michelle Cusimano Vachris. The Manhasset Booster Club will also be honoring the 1967 undefeated, untied Long Island Championship Manhasset Boys Lacrosse Team.

This year’s theme for the Manhasset band is Les Miserables. Along with loads of great music and marching performances, there will be concession tables and fun for families and children of all ages. Admission is $7 for adults; children 11 and younger are free.
It all started last spring when Melissa Slobin, Speech teacher and Heather Botelho, Life Skills teacher expressed interest in the newly installed vegetable garden at the Manhasset Secondary School. The Life Skills students came out to the garden to weed and plant tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers once a week during fourth period speech class. After the school year ended many of the students enrolled in Nicholas Center for Autism’s Employment and Social Skills Summer Program located in Port Washington.
Allison Schear, Director of the Summer Program, and Planet Manhasset agreed to a 6-week gardening program at the Manhasset Secondary School. About 15 students and teachers came over twice a week to water, weed and tend to the garden. Thanks to their effort the harvest was successful and shared with a local food bank. Everyone enjoyed it so much (in fact it was their favorite summer activity) that they voted to return again next summer.
Pumpkins adorned the posts and lined the railings to Manhasset Secondary School alerting residents to the Fall fundraiser for Manhasset Schools. A large pick-up truck with corn stalk and pumpkins sporting a hand-painted, huge sign in the back was parked on Plandome Rd. to alert all those in town to come and pick and decorate a pumpkin. Youngsters holding signs urged cars to travel down Manhasset Avenue to the High School and view the pumpkin patch which transformed the athletic field. Parents and many loyal student helpers created a fall farm festival reminiscent of the farms out East. Thousands of pumpkins were strewn across the front athletic field to be picked.
