Dalers Perform In All-County Festival

Students from all over Nassau County were selected to perform at this year’s All-County Music Festival, which took place throughout the month of January, at the Tilles Center in Brookville.  This year a record number of Farmingdale students were chosen in different categories, including band, orchestra, chorus, and jazz band. In total 103 Dalers were honored. 

 

In addition, several of the students were honored individually. In division II, Devika Arora and Kelly Bergersen performed as vocal soloists; and in the jazz band category, Miles Malanowski played lead trumpet, Cooper Malanowski played lead trombone, and Connor Fawcett played guitar. All three  also performed solo.

Fernandez were vocal soloists, Greg DeAngelis was lead trombone, and Matthew Malanowski played piano. Both DeAngelis and Malanowski  also performed solo. 

 

Those who performed in this year’s All-County Festival were picked based on their scores in the New York State School Music Association Adjudication Festival and by teacher recommendation.

Sam Gelfer, Barbara Lieberman, Jonathan Bley, Gina Pellettiere, Jessica Mischke, Andy Segale, Matthew Szabo, Danielle Tucker and Claire Zatorski; and Elementary teachers Joe DeAngelis, Matthew DeMasi, Joan Drewes, Katie Duke, Pat Facchiano, Erika Felker, Erica Hartmann, Becky Korn, Jennifer Tower and Therese Mannino.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. 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.

 

Event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event. 

It’s been more than 50 years since the Farmingdale High School class of 1964 roamed the halls of their beloved high school, but that doesn’t mean that the memories have faded. 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.  


Sports

3rd Grade Division

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.
