Fifth Annual Farmingdale Jumps Is a Success
The Farmingdale Community Summit Council presented the fifth annual Farmingdale Jumps basketball game on Jan. 31.

The event was sponsored by the Farmingdale Community Summit Council and The Farmingdale Council of PTA’s. Proceeds from the event will be utilized by both organizations to continue their programs to benefit our community.
