On behalf of all the residents of the Incorporated Village of Farmingdale, we wish to thank the Farmingdale-Bethpage Historical Society for all their efforts in designing and purchasing the Civil War Memorial that is the latest addition to our redesigned Village Green. It is a beautiful tribute to the men who answered our nation’s call 150 years ago.
Special thanks are also due to the Farmingdale Fire Department for once again flawlessly organizing the Memorial Day parade.
The solemn tribute to our ancestors and neighbors that made the ultimate sacrifice protecting our freedoms and our way of life at Village Green is an important, annual event that reminds all Americans how lucky we are to be living in the greatest country in the world.
