Decorative moulding is beautiful. It enhances the loveliness of the room. It also finishes where the joint of wall and ceiling meet. Crown moulding is one of the most commonly used. Some styles of crown moulding lend themselves better to certain styles of homes.
In a room with traditional furnishings, a more ornate-style of crown moulding is called for, while a room that is decorated in a modern style would be better suited for a simple, clean moulding.
Whatever your style, moulding adds flair.

The Manhasset Bay Sportsmen’s Club held its annual flounder derby on the Port Washington town dock on Saturday, May 2. This year, they renamed the derby the Robert “Skip” Campbell Flounder Derby in honor of Skip Campbell, the event organizer. About 25 children turned out to fish at the flounder derby.
Though none of the kids caught a fish this year, many prizes were raffled off, including rods and reels, tackle boxes, fishing nets and T-shirts. The sportsmen’s club also gave out free hot dogs, drinks and snacks, water bottles and a certificate to all participants. This was the 52nd annual spring fishing derby. This year, the Manhasset Bay Sportsmen’s Club celebrates its 70th anniversary. The sportsmen’s club also holds a snapper derby in August.
The two-year old class invited their moms to a first time ever “Mother’s Day Tea.” The children’s regular tables and chairs were transformed by springtime tablecloths and colorful paper goods to rival any traditional High Tea.
Along with their teachers, the children had been busy for quite some time coming up with surprises for their moms. Each child created a handmade card and a picture of their favorite flowers. Marigold seeds were sown and given time to grow. Every plant was then put into an individually decorated pot by every student.
The mothers in attendance—in addition to a grandma or two—were also pinned with a blue ribbon proclaiming “#1 Mom.” There were several tears of joy and gasps of wonder as the children presented their moms with their handiwork, which will all be keepsakes for some time to come.
The school is now accepting registration for September and is a not-for-profit Christian co-op school located at 90 Plandome Rd. in Manhasset. Students are admitted from any race, color, creed and national or ethnic origin. There are two-year-old, three-year-old and pre-K groups. Five day programs are available for all. There is also a July summer program with one-to-four-week options available. For further information, call 516-365-7244.
