"When we first moved to Manhasset I was researching ways to get to know people in the area and came across a flyer for the MPNC and decided to join. It was the best decision I made. We've met some great friends and attended fabulous events-- I loved it so much that I decided to be a part of the Board. The club is a great way of getting to know your community."

“I’m so glad we decided to join MPNC last year. We have met wonderful new friends and been able to participate in a range of fun activities for families, couples and ladies only. I’m really looking forward to helping incorporate philanthropy into several of our events this year because we have some great opportunities to serve our community!"
