After rides and games all afternoon at Spirit Day, middle school students are invited to continue the fun at the Middle School Dance Party in the St. Anne’s School cafeteria on Saturday, Sept. 20. This year’s theme of “Frozen”, along with the school’s new air conditioning system, will transport students into a virtual winter wonderland of dancing and music.
“This is such a great event for our middle school students,” says event organizer Barbara Tranfaglia. “It’s a chance for them to continue the momentum of the day in a friendly, safe environment with their friends. We always have great music and it’s a really popular event.”
The Middle School “Frozen” Dance Party kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and lasts until 9:30 p.m. Admission is $5 and water, soda and the very popular warm soft pretzels, prepared with care by volunteer parents, are all available for $2 each. Dance favorites will be spun by renowned DJ Steve Espy. Young people from both St. Anne’s and local schools can gather together to meet up with old friends, connect with new peers and dance the evening away in the newly air-conditioned cafeteria, a wonderful benefit made possible by Big Bucks raffles of years past.
“We hope that our middle school students will enjoy Spirit Day daytime events and then stay for the dance party,” continues Tranfaglia. “Spirit Day with the dance party is a great way for students to start off the school year.”
The Church of St. Anne in Garden City hosts the 12th annual Spirit Day on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 1-10 p.m. with rides, games and music all day and evening. The day is punctuated with a beautiful celebration of mass outdoors at 5 p.m. and the Big Bucks Raffle drawing at 10 p.m. Winner need not be present. For more information on the Middle School Dance Party or other activities that day, please call the St. Anne’s Rectory at 516-352-5904.

Lights. Camera. Action. These are the words you may hear if you are in Floral Park’s village hall.
For almost two decades Floral Park has been home to Four Village Studio (4VS), a local community television station serving the four-village area.
The community station airs a variety of programs hosted by residents, a community billboard and its own weather station. However, according to Operations Manager James Green, this is not the only goal of the studio.

Senator Jack Martins mentioned education, business and drug use among other topics in a recent interview with the Floral Park Dispatch. He’s currently seeking re-election in November, being challenged by Democrat Adam Haber.
Pointing to what he called “key legislation,” particularly the tax cap legislation passed in 2011 and prescription drug bill he helped foster to enactment, Martins feels New York State is on track to continue fiscal responsibility.
