Your Weekly ‘Dispatch’ Has Returned

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. 

 

I encourage reader participation. Email your photos, submissions, calendar listings and more to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

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.
