By Any Other Name Is A Success

You can’t judge a book by its cover, or a romance novel by its author’s name and photo. The original comedy By Any Other Name by Claudia Wilson was presented on Jan. 30 through Feb. 7 at the United Methodist Church in Floral Park and what a success.

The charming comedy written by Wilson, who lives in Floral Park and is a longstanding member of Theatre Box, centered on Otto Putzhammer, a budding romance novelist whose stories are constantly rejected by publishing companies because of two strikes against him—his less than romantic sounding name and his less than attractive appearance.

Otto’s luck is about to change thanks to his sister, Heidi, who submits one of his manuscripts to a publisher under a pseudonym and a photo of a model. The result is a series of hilarious situations for everyone involved.

The show cast included: Rich Carroll as Otto Putzhammer, Melissa Virdone as Heidi, Kate Lenzo as Sally, Geralyn Greco as Martha, Nick Sieban as Rod, Tim Smith as KP Willson, and Kelly Schmidt as Gina.

Proceeds from the show will benefit the creation of a community storm center.

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.
