Bayside Historical Society gets grant

Denise Johnson, (center) vice-president of Education for the Bayside Historical Society, is flanked by Elizabeth Zajack (left) and Karen Greene of Whole Foods Market at their Manhasset store recently.
The Society was the recipient of a grant totaling $4938, as part of Whole Foods’ “5% Day” program. Worthy charities, receive a grant equal to 5 percent of a store’s income on a designated day.
Johnson, seen here wearing period garb at one of the Society’s historical displays at the Manhasset Whole Foods Market, was instrumental in securing the funding. “We are delighted to receive such a generous contribution,” she said, adding that it would directly benefit the Society’s outreach programs.
