Students Honored For Wounded Warrior Work

Once again the children of the John Lewis Childs School have risen to the occasion of supporting the Nassau County Fire Fighters Operation Wounded Warrior (NCFF-OWW). They received a special citation from the men at Fort Bragg and it is being displayed in the front entrance of the school.

The citation from Commanding Officer LTC, LG Judson P. Nelson, Jr. to the faculty and students of John Lewis Childs reads, “Thank you for your selfless service to the Soldiers and Families of the Fort Bragg, Warrior Transition Battalion. Your contributions to the Battalion on 5 December 2013 were immense and meant a great deal to all who attended. Your support is a true testament to your commitment, compassion, and dedication to giving back to those who serve. Your service reflects great credit upon your organization and is a superb example for all others to follow.”

Maybe not a scene from the rap song video, Thrift Shop, but the popular spot in Floral Park to score some of the best deals on lightly used goods and clothing, the United Methodist Church’s Thrift Shop, was just as exciting to watch when it re-opened to customers for the season. The thrift shop re-opened on Wednesday, Sept. 3 after being closed for the summer for restocking, cleaning and organizing the shelves and racks.

Thrift Shop Manager Dolores Rossi said more than nine volunteers helped throughout the summer to get the shop back into top shape for its re-opening, including her 17-year-old grandsons, Andrew Rossi of Floral Park and Jake Kennedy of New Hyde Park.

In 1963, Sewanhaka High School alumni and Floral Park resident, Adele Werthmuller pulled out her yearbook. She was on a mission and began paging through the pictures and names of her beloved classmates. She decided to look through the phone book for familiar names. She said, “I kept in contact with many of my girlfriends so I started looking for the men first.”
