Mattituck-Laurel: Cut-a-thon to benefit Relay for Life

If you’re watching TV and notice a familiar face in a Waldbaum’s commercial, it’s our very own local store manager Bill Goff. Nice job, Bill!

Several weeks ago I reported that Mattituck High School physical education classes had a chance to learn ballroom dancing with the Arthur Miller Dance Studio thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Music and the PTSA. Little did some of our students know when those skills would come in handy. During February break, Kathleen Galvin, Ted Biedenkap and Lisa Hinsch accompanied a group of our students on a trip to Argentina. As part of their tour, the students had the opportunity to watch and participate in tango lessons. Much to the chaperones’ surprise, these students already had mastered the fundamentals of this dance due to their experience at MHS. This was only one moment of many from the trip that the students will remember for a lifetime!

Lenny Llewellyn called to inform me that the U.S. Peconic Bay Power Squadron is making instructional materials for a program called “Water Smart from the Start” available to local schools. The materials include books, computer programs and more. For more information about this program contact Lenny at 298-4793.
