Important Notice ~ Please Read


It has been brought to my attention that some local youths are causing a disturbance at night after dark.    At various times over the last few weeks, kids have apparently been hiding in the bushes at the intersection of Scotts Landing Rd. and Wooleys Dr. heading toward the beach. The incident occurs when cars stop at the noted intersection. These kids are apparently hiding in trees/bushes. When the car stops, said kids jump out and bang the back of the car.  Most drivers believe they have hit something or that something has hit their car and get out to investigate.

If you encounter this type of occurrence, any means to identify these youths will be helpful and PLEASE report this to the Southampton Town police so a record is kept of these occurrences.

Please bring any type of this actvity to the attention of the Board, because if they are local Colony Club kids the parents will be notified and appropriate action taken.

This type of activity is unsafe to the kids, the drivers, passengers and all our members and guests.

Thank you.

Newsday article about Dr. Pierce ` FYI

By nature and by profession,Edward T. Pierce brought smiles to thousands of people in the Manhasset area. The retired orthodontist,who practiced for 45years in that North Shore community, died March 5 of natural causes at age 89.In the early 1950s, Pierce began his dental career affixing braces to the teeth of children with protruding, crooked and gap-tooth smiles until happy with their appearance.Pierce treated“several thousand” young patients
over the years, remembered
his son Jeffrey, also a
Manhasset orthodontist
who, for a time, worked with
his father.
“He treated children and
when they grew up, he treated
their children,” Jeffrey recalled.
“He was always
happy and put the kids at
As a young man, Pierce
served in World War II as an
ensign in the U.S. Navy, first
aboard a destroyer in the
North Atlantic in 1944, before
heading to the Pacific, where
he witnessed the Japanese surrender
the following year.
“We were part of the force
that was going to attack
Japan,” Pierce recounted to a
local newspaper in 2011.
Returning home after the
war, Pierce graduated from
Fordham University and received
his dental training at
Tufts University in Massachusetts,
where at a dance
he met his future wife, Janice,
who survives him. The
couple married in 1951 and
raised seven children on
Long Island — all of whom
wore braces at some time
growing up.
Professionally, Pierce
served as the president of
the New York State Society
of Orthodontists and, in his
personal life, he acted as
commodore at the Port
Washington Yacht Club,
overseeing activities for two
years. “He learned how to be a
leader in the military and he
was a leader for the rest of his
life,” recalled his daughter Cynthia
McGuinness of New City,
in Rockland County.
He was also a member of the
Knights of Columbus, the American
Legion, Kiwanis International
and a past commander of
the power squadron in Manhasset
While he enjoyed fishing and
trapshooting, Pierce also relaxed
by sailing near a family
beach house in Southampton
and taking his family aboard his
38-foot powerboat. “We went
to Cape Cod, up the Hudson
River to Canada and to the Bahamas
— we traveled a lot in
that boat,” recalled Jeffrey.
After retiring in 1997, he kept
residences in Southampton and
Jensen Beach, Florida, before
moving recently to Great Neck,
where he died.
Other survivors are sons
Roger of Charlotte, North Carolina,
and Stevan of Coram; daughters
Daphne Cannata, ofWesterly,
Rhode Island, Holly Browne
of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania,
and Deidra Maleno of Manhasset;
brothers Bill of East Setauket
and John of Bohemia; sisters Ann
Marie of East Islip and Bernadette
of North Bellmore; and 20
A Mass was celebrated Monday
at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic
Church in Manhasset, followed
by burial at Sacred
Hearts of Jesus and Mary Cemetery
in Southampton.
