This is Santos’ second time being published in the magazine’s book and a well-deserved honor.

On June 6, 1944, the Americans and the Allies stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, with 150,000 soldiers, 5,000 ships, and 11,000 aircraft in a titanic battle to breach Hitler’s fortified Atlantic Wall. Operation Overlord was the largest invasion in world history; the forces of democracy and freedom were in a fight to the finish against powerful totalitarian regimes and their ideologies. The invasion drew upon all the physical, spiritual, material, and human resources of our great nation. Brave, young Americans overcame daunting odds as they fought their way across Utah and Omaha beaches. These boys, doing the deeds of men, that day changed the course of history.

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.
