Please bring a can or box of food (something non perishable) for the Food Pantry. There will be a box as you enter the tent for donations.

As you are leaving please empty any unfinished open soda or drink cans and put them in the recycle box. The staff appreciates the help.

Sad News

Evelyn Herman, retired Northport High School social studies teacher, died on August 23 at the age of 96. She was predeceased by her husband, Robert, and is survived by her daughter Andrea, son Jeff, five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren – with two more on the way.

While teaching at Northport Evelyn was involved in the Model United Nations program and chaperoned several student trips to the Soviet Union with Russian language teacher Serge Nepo. Evelyn had a passion for travel, and traveled extensively in her retirement years. She was active until her last days, insisting on playing scrabble with a caretaker on the night before she passed away.

At the time of her death Evelyn was living in an assisted living home in Roslyn, and although she was fully vaccinated and received all the latest treatments, she died of Covid 19. Her family asked that we remind everyone, especially senior citizens, to be extra vigilant in taking precautions against this potentially deadly disease.
