Anton Community Newspapers is pleased to announce that the Dispatch is returning to its role as Floral Park’s premier weekly. You might have noticed that the weekly Floral Park Dispatch took a brief hiatus, although we continued to publish quarterly throughout the year.
Starting this week, you can look forward to coverage of the things that matter most, including John Lewis Childs, Floral Park-Bellerose, Floral Park Memorial High schools, village government, Our Lady of Victory and myriad churches within the village, local businesses and civic associations, Centennial Gardens, the Recreation Center and most of all, its residents.
Helping to tell the stories of your lives will be me, Christy Hinko, a five-year editor and reporter at Anton Newspapers. You have likely seen me over the years, a patron at many of the businesses like Raindew and Marina’s Deli along Covert, Dee Dee’s Luncheonette on Tulip, and Migliore’s Pizzeria and Long Island Shotokan Karate Dojo on Jericho Turnpike.
