We have great things coming up for Spring, including the annual St. Patty’s Day Parade, the Farmingdale Community Summit, Comedy Night, the Easter Bunny, and of course, our regular lunches and networking nights.
Have you taken a walk down Main Street lately? Things are looking really great. Charlotte’s Frozen Yogurt has opened and the community is raving about them.
The beautification committee made everything look amazing for the holidays and if you swing around by the train station; construction is humming along.
Even though we have had a lot of storms, the Chamber is still working hard to plan events. We hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity to meet new business associates at the networking events and luncheons.
Thank you to John Court of The Nutty Irishman for hosting our January Networking Event. The event was amazing. Food at The Nutty is so awesome. It’s getting difficult to count - but there were over 40 people at the event.
Thank you to all that have renewed your membership.
I hope to see many of you at our luncheon meeting at CaraCara Mexican Grill at noon on Thursday, Feb. 6 and at Cascarino’s After Hours Networking, 5:30 to 7:30 pm on Wednesday, Feb. 19.

If the Farmingdale Rams are going to get over the top and capture the Skyline Conference for men’s soccer in 2014, it will take some more aggressive play. That’s according to team captain and defensive player Vincent Danetti.
“We don’t have a lot of big guys on our team,” Danetti said. “We need to play aggressive.”

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.
