Sign Up Now To ‘Fly’ This Fall

Register now as classes fill up quickly and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to join in trapeze workshops at Eisenhower Park’s I.FLY this fall.

 

“I.FLY was designed to give kids and adults the ability to fulfill their dreams of being in the circus,” says instructor Anthony Rosamilia.  “Flying through the air never gets boring.  At I.FLY, we help people create lifelong memories.” 

 

Flying trapeze workshops are a great way to dedicate yourself to learning. A consistent learning schedule makes a consistent flyer, so workshops are on the same day and time with the same group and instructors. You’ll develop a rhythm that creates more fluid transitions between turns—and more flying for you. I.FLY will touch more on the finer points of flying, fine tune take-offs, and tweak your positions to near perfection.

 

“When you are a beginner, you will learn a basic knee hang,” says Ann Marie Cagnazzi, a fairly new convert. “After you learn positions, you build off them. The instructors at I.FLY help you learn harder moves and tricks gradually.” 

 

Fall Workshops begin in September:

 

Workshops for all ages:  Wednesday, Sept. 3 through Oct. 22 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m.

 

Workshops for kids: Thursday, Sept. 4 through Oct. 23 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m.

 

Workshops for adults (17+): Tuesday, Sept. 16 through Oct. 21 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. 

 

At the Aquatic Center at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. Sign up at www.iflytrapeze.com or call 516-640-6995 for details. 

News

At a recent meeting of the Farmingdale Board of Education, school district superintendent John Lorentz discussed New York State’s proposal to invest $2 billion into districts statewide

through the Smart Schools Bond Act.

 

If approved by voters in the upcoming general elections, the act would allow the state to borrow $2 billion in the form of a capital bond to provide students with access to classroom

technology and high-speed internet connectivity, with the goal of equalizing opportunities for children to learn, adding classroom space, expanding pre-kindergarten programs, replacing classroom trailers with permanent instructional space and installing high-tech security features in schools. 

Over the weekend, thousands of Long Island residents flocked to the Village of Farmingdale for its 26th annual Columbus Day Weekend Fair and Fireman’s carnival. Running from Oct. 9

to 13, the five-day affair featured live music from Farmingdale’s own Electric Dudes and Long Island party band Superbad, a Fire Department barbecue, food vendors, a street fair, fireworks, carnival rides, games for kids of all ages and, of course, the Columbus Day parade.

The 2014 Reilly Cup finals featured the two most successful OTHG teams over the last 9 years. Sal’s Place and Singleton’s have had 11 finals appearances and 7 championships between them during this period of time. They split 2 games during the regular season and Singleton’s became the winner’s bracket representative in the 2014 Cup by beating Sal’s deep in the tournament.

 

Sal’s took the first game 14-7. The game was close until the 8th inning when Sal’s broke it open with some timely hits and taking advantage of a Singleton’s miscue or two.  Sal’s held

Singleton’s to 7 runs with outstanding all-around defense, which was particularly impressive given that some of their significant contributors were visibly fighting through late-season injuries.
