Santa Claus Comes To Town

Residents march down Main Street in holiday parade

The Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce’s annual holiday parade was held on Saturday, Nov. 17 along Main Street, from Northside Elementary School to the Village Green. Residents of Farmingdale including, the Farmingdale High School band, and the Dalerettes, local officials and dozens of Girl Scouts, all showed their Christmas pride. 

The band played Christmas songs, while the Dalerettes danced. The Girl Scout troops also paraded down Main Street dressed as presents, snowflakes, and candy canes, and more. 

Following the Girl Scouts, members of the Farmingdale Fire Department chauffeured Santa down Main Street atop Engine & Hose Company’s Water Witch fire engine. The children follow Santa to the Village Green gazebo. They lined up for a chance to sit on Santa’s lap and have their pictures taken. 

The parade gets everyone in a holiday spirit, signaling that the holiday season has arrived. A special thanks to Farmingdale Lanes for the candy cane donation. 

News

After spotting an abandoned cemetery at the corner of Grant Avenue and Rose Street in the heart of downtown Farmingdale, resident Vicki Gruber became inspired to trace the lineage of the Van Cott family—some of the earliest settlers in the Farmingdale community. Gruber, a corporate and securities attorney, said that after approaching the village about the history of the cemetery, she took it upon herself to do the research. Compiling three or four years worth of newfound information, Gruber discovered that each of the 16 plots in the cemetery are direct descendants of Claes Cornelissen Van Cats, a Dutch settler and firm believer in democracy, home rule and civil liberty. 

Farmingdale village officials will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to reexamine school speed zones throughout the village, in order to establish a consistent school speed zone limit.

At a special “wrap up “ meeting for the 2014 Marcum Workplace Challenge, Greater Long Island Running Club Vice President and Event Director Mindy Davidson of Farmingdale, presented a special plaque to Winsome Foulkes, team captain of the Farmingdale-based Telephonics Corporation.  Winsome is retiring from Telephonics after a long and successful career and has led the Telephonics Corporation in the Marcum Workplace Challenge since its inception.  

There is simply no better way for runners and their families to celebrate the Holiday Season than by being part of the fun at the Carter, DeLuca, Farrell & Schmidt Holiday 5 Kilometer Run, and on Saturday morning, Dec. 20, the Run will be celebrating its 27th anniversary edition at the John F. Kennedy Middle School in Bethpage. The run will start at 9:30 a.m. on Broadway in Bethpage.
