A Mother’s Love

Once a year, we celebrate the one person who helped carry us into the world, the one woman who continues to put up with the nonsense time and time again—of course, I am talking about Mom.  

 

Mother’s Day is a time for children, no matter what age, to show their appreciation and give thanks to mom for all of her sacrafices and the love that she gives. 

 

On May 8, Farmingdale Public Library invited children of all ages to come learn how and why Mother’s Day is celebrated. 

 

At the event, Children’s Librarians Christa Lucarelli and Elena Jannello took turns reading to kids and their moms. Some of the books included, The Night Before Mother’s Day by Natasha Wing, Mother May I? by Lynn Plourde, and Biscuit Loves Mother’s Day by Alyssa Satin Capucilli. 

 

After, children were able to design their own Mother Bear magnets, which they could bring home as a gift for mom. 

 

For two-year-old twins Jessica and Katelyn Turzer, their favorite part of the “Mother’s Day Fun” was getting to make this special craft. 

 

“We came to the event to make a special mommy gift,” said their grandmother JoAnn Turzer.

 

In addition to giving their mother the crafts and cards they made, the Turzer twins plan on surprising their mother with flowers on Mother’s Day. 

 

Coming up with different ways to show mom how much they appreciate her this Mother’s Day, the librarians suggested buying flowers, like the Turzer’s did, or doing something simple, like cleaning up around the house. 

 

Another option is to make their mother breakfast, which is what four-year-old Serena Lepik said she plans to do this Mother’s Day.

 

Lepik and her mother, Jeannine, were just some of the many parents, grandparents, nannies, and kids at the Farmingdale library for the event. 

 

As a surprise treat, all of the children in attendance were also given free shirts and activity posters from the film Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return—which opened in theaters this past week.

 

The Farmingdale Public Library’s Children’s Department holds two to three events a week during the summertime, and will typically increase the number registrants and activities available. Jannello added that she expects there to be three to four programs a day, five days a week.

Mentorship is one of those goals rotary clubs strive for, particularly when it comes to grooming future community business leaders. Nowhere was this more important than when the most recent Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary meeting’s guests were Stanley Pelech, director of Integrated Academic and Technical studies and Jodi Haniquet, advisor of the Farmingdale High School (FHS) Interact club. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people. The Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary is the sponsor of the 75-plus student strong high school club. Advisor Jodi Haniquet reported to Rotary club members what  fundraising events the Interact Club will participate in for the 2015 school year. The service group will once again team with FHS student government in a food drive – donations collected for Island Harvest pantries. They will also participate in Ronald McDonald house dinner program – cooking and serving meals on the premises in New Hyde Park for the many families staying at the residence while their seriously ill children receive treatment at nearby hospitals.

Farmingdale team wins annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Race

On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Farmingdale-based Runner’s Edge team earned first place overall in the 29th annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay. The team, representing the Runner’s Edge running and multisport specialty store located at 242 Main St. in Farmingdale, consisted of Boyd Carrington, Andrew Coelho, Nick Pampena, Tim Lee, Shawn Anderson, Ryan Healy, Kevin Galante, and Brandon Abasolo. It completed the 50-mile course from Jones Beach State Park to Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park in Oyster Bay in 4 hours, 41 minutes, 58 seconds. The runners won by a margin of more than 10 minutes over the runner-up team from the Sayville & Smithtown Running Company, with much of the difference supplied by the strong Leg 2 performance by Andrew Coelho. Runner’s Edge Teams also took second place honors in the Mixed Open and Men’s Masters Divisions of the Relay. The Relay was sponsored by Bethpage Federal Credit Union (“Built to Give You More”), with new Race Directors Glen Wolther and Keith Montgomery managing the event for the host Greater Long Island Running Club.
