At the intersection of Carnation and Tulip avenues, passersby might have noticed the erected scaffolding attached to Centennial Hall. According to village officials the building, because of its age and its need for some repair and maintenance, is being examined and evaluated. The monumental columns, that support the front of the building, are deteriorating.The building was sold by the Freemasons organization to the village more than 10 years ago. It presently serves as the Floral Park Historical Society Museum, a community meeting place, and storage. It has been used as a donation collection site for the Nassau County Firefighters Operation Wounded Warrior’s annual event and as the Friends of the Library annual book sale.
The inspection is in progress. The village plans to have more information available as the results are reported.

On Sunday, Aug. 20, Genna Cardalena, 17, of Floral Park, was named Miss Long Island Teen 2015 at the annual pageant held in Patchogue, in conjunction with the Miss Long Island Pageant. Thirty-two women, between the ages of 14 and 26 years old represented towns from across Long Island to compete for the Miss and Teen 2015 titles.
Cardalena told the Floral Park Dispatch, “It’s really surreal; it took me about 24 hours for it to really sink in that I was Miss Long Island Teen 2015.” This is her third competition. Her cousin originally turned her on to pageant competitions. “I entered on a whim and placed in the Top 10 in a 2013 competition in Westchester,” said Cardalena. She then entered the 2014 pageant on Long Island and placed in the top five and also won Miss Congeniality.
