Greenport: McMoore fundraiser Saturday

03/08/2011 1:25 PM |
The Greenport Music Festival, founded in 1998 to expose Greenport students to classical music, is now following a different score. Rather than bring virtuoso students to perform, as in years past, the organization now uses part of its funding to provide violin lessons for a Greenport student. This year that's Kevin Lin, 10, a fifth-grader. He's shown with (from left) his father, Jimmy Lin, instructor Daniel Gladstone, band teacher Pamela Goodland and elementary principal Joseph Tsaveras.

Ten days, folks, that’s all it is. Ten more days and spring arrives. That being the case, it means summer is merely 103 days away!

Don’t forget the Greenport Fire Department spaghetti and meatball dinner this Saturday, March 12, which will help defray medical expenses Al McMoore incurred while awaiting a liver transplant. The dinner will run from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Third Street firehouse. Tickets are $15 and takeout will be available. Reserve by calling Ed Sieban at 477-2047 or purchase tickets at the door.

If spring is around the corner, it can mean only one thing: the beginning of golf season. Barbara Koch is gung ho to get started and is trying to form a new league at Island’s End Golf Course. She’s looking for 36 women to play nine holes on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. Groups will tee off every 10 minutes. If you’re interested, there will be an organizational meeting at the course on March 30 at 4 p.m. You can reach Barbara at 765-3464 or [email protected]

If you’re in the midst of spring cleaning, don’t forget that Jillian Ruroede is still looking for lightly used semi-formal, prom and bridesmaid dresses for a Prom Boutique at the school in April. Contact Jillian at 477-1950 if you can help.

I’m so pleased to relay this next bit of information. Congratulations and all of life’s blessings to Addison Joy Johnson, born on March 5 tipping the scales at 10 pounds, 3 ounces. Bragging rights to this beautiful little girl go to her mom and dad, Victoria and Craig Johnson; maternal grandparents, Brenda and Warren Jensen; and paternal grandparents, Denise and David Murphy.

Members of the GHS Class of 1976 should contact Eileen Lellman Getches at [email protected] if you have any interest in getting together for an informal reunion this coming Fourth of July weekend.

Celebrating another birthday during the upcoming week are Esther Tedeschi and Josh Rowsom today, March 10; Kevin Quillin on the 11th; Emelia Jacobi and Joe Capuano on the 13th; Christy Hallock, Scot Boken, Becky Manwaring and Joe O’Brien on the 14th; my very dear neighbor and my second mother Ann Stanilaus, as well as Doug Webb, Kerry Klipp, Kevin Butterfield and Kyle Kozora on the 15th; and Brianne Manwaring, Dan Kart, Priscilla Kavanagh, Joe Willsey and Patrick Walden on the 16th.
