Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in nearby Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.

The class—the first to graduate from Farmingdale High—came together on Saturday, October 18 at the Marriott in Islandia to celebrate all of the good times past and make new memories as a class.

The Giants and Jets met for the 2nd time this season, with the Giants again getting the victory over the Jets. Jalen Gordon scored late into the 1st half for the Giants, which turned out to be the only points in the half. The Giants shut the Jets down for both halves, keeping the offense off the board. The Jets strong point this weekend was the defense, with Kyle June and Jake Kuller picking up the weekly William June Foundation awards. In what is turning into a rough offensive season for the Jets, these awards continue to remind the boys of the perseverance and determination of the award’s namesake and his “never say quit” attitude.
