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.”

Community gathers together

for 16th annual Liz’s Day

When a young woman named Elizabeth McFarland died of breast cancer, a group of women gathered together for a small meeting and Liz’s Day was born.

On Sept. 27, the 16th annual Liz’s Day took place at the Floral Park Recreation Center. The event featured a used book sale, a Chinese style auction raffle, foods, drinks and music. All of the money raised from the event went to breast cancer research.

A Village of Stewart Manor Board of Trustees meeting turned into a lesson in the values of community engagement on Oct. 6. The regularly scheduled village meeting was attended by a group of Boy Scouts working toward a merit badge who witnessed new laws enacted and speeches from Fire Chief Tom Skinner and members of the Elmont School District Board of Education.  

Members of Troop 134 attended the meeting to gain an Eagle Scout-required merit badge for Citizenship within the Community. They were required to go to a town hall-style meeting and witness a little democracy in action.
