Wanted: Radcliff Manor Contact

Last Sunday afternoon some 80 neighbors piled into one of Radcliff Manor’s coziest living rooms to bid farewell to two of the Glenwood / Glen Head Civic Association’s strongest supporters—Nancy Hall and her husband Jim—on the eve of their relocation to the mountains of North Carolina.

In between delivering hot meals to sick friends, hosting foreign exchange students, looking in on housebound neighbors, and a host of other kindnesses, Nancy has never missed an opportunity to offer encouraging words of support or to deliver Civic Association flyers to Radcliff’s 100 households.

“Nancy has been a force of nature in Radcliff for decades,” says long-time friend and neighbor Lou Wybaillie, “I’ve never been able to figure out how she accomplishes so much in a single day.”

To maximize its effectiveness, the Glenwood / Glen Head Civic Association has found it necessary to focus primarily on the neighborhood between Glen Cove Avenue and Shore Road to the east and west, and Kissam and Scudders lanes to the north and south. But because Glenwood Landing and Glen Head have so much in common, the Civic Association networks with people and groups in other nearby neighborhoods as much as possible.

Nancy’s departure leaves the Civic Association with a networking gap in Radcliff Manor that we hope to fill as soon as possible. We hope, too, that Nancy will keep in touch by visiting the Glenwood / Glen Head Civic Spot now and then—and maybe even by leaving a comment or two. If you would like to help carry on Nancy’s legacy by being the Civic Association’s Radcliff Manor contact, please send a message with your contact information to
