Muralist Beautifies Floral Park's Tulip Avenue
"I'm a muralist. It's a great, satisfying business but the demand for large murals is few and far between," Mario Tucci (Tucci Home Designs) of Floral Park admitted. Taking classes and creating murals on canvas in his studio helped Tucci hone his skills as well as develop new skills. He recently came across a story on the Community Bridge in Fredrick, MD and had to go see it for himself. "It's magnificent!" he said, adding that it inspired him to use his down time to paint the town of Floral Park, where he currently lives.
Agreement Made to Create History Museum at Centennial Hall

The Society's Museum Committee - Frank Gunther, Jeanne Petta, Peter Fleig and George Bowen and Gosden - will move forward with members of the Society to create a museum in Centennial Hall's Hearth Room on the second floor.
