Letter: Spring Is On Its Way

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.

 

Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce President Beth Mignone

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. 

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.” 


Sports

Last week, officials with the St. Kilian Saints baseball team inducted John Lombardi and Aaron Powell into their Hall of Fame.

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.
