Celebrating a century
Longtime Southold resident Dorothy ‘Dot’ Greet was the center of attention on April 25, when friends and relatives gathered at Holy Trinity Church in Greenport, where she is a member, to celebrate her 100th birthday. The festivities included a reminiscence by George Marsich, who had attended a school in Hollis, N.Y., where Ms. Greet was an administrative assistant. He spoke of the great influence she had on the students. Ms. Greet, born April 27, 1010, received proclamations from Southold Town, Sen. Kenneth LaValle, Bishop Lawrence Provenzano and President Barack Obama. Pictured with her are (from left) Father Paul Wancura, pastor of Holy Trinity Church; Supervisor Scott Russell; Roger Walz, senior warden of Holy Trinity; and guest Caia Thompson.
