Skiiers Make Most Out Of Weather

Farmingdale residents Regina and Jim Broten ventured out with their skis to Bethpage State Park this weekend to enjoy what they love most, skiing and snow.

 

The cross country skiers come to the park frequently to slide up and down the trails together, and they never get tired of it.

 

“It is like being in a winter wonderland,” Regina said, “How can you live here and not do this?”

 

Even though they ski often, they are far from being professionals.

 

“We absolutely love skiing, but we do it strictly for fun. We are recreational skiers, and we are lucky to be getting all of this great snow to do what we love,” Regina Laughed. 

 

Bethpage State Park is located at 99 Quaker Meeting House Rd. in Farmingdale. Cross country skiing and sleigh riding are available with snow cover through March 31. 

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. 


Sports

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.
