'Champagne Pam' Wins Award

The Our Lady of Victory (OLV) 1987 alumna Pamela “Champagne Pam” Lewis is a singer, songwriter, and performer, with a sultry, silky cabaret style. Her passion for performing and music traces back to her earliest memories. In 2010, Lewis began writing and performing her own cabaret shows in Manhattan. “That endeavor has led me to win the “Best Female Singer” award from Broadway World for her current show, Daddy’s Little Girl.

Lewis offers an entertaining inventory of song and story as she checks off the list of a life well lived and loved. Bubbling with a spectrum of sound from contemporary music to jazz, this show is intended to pop with music lovers everywhere and of course, the cabaret devotee.

Under the direction of the award-winning Susan Winter, Lewis will be accompanied by a full band including guitarist husband John Hurley.

Born and raised in Floral Park, Lewis’ passion for performing and music traces back to age five when she gave an impromptu performance for a crowd of 200. In recent years, Pamela has been featured in a range of venues and performances, including music, comedy and acting – both improvisational and scripted.  In addition to the singer/songwriter duo with her husband, Lewis fronts a 10-piece orchestra for hire.

Lewis performs Daddy’s Little Girl again on Saturday, March 8 at Don’t Tell Mama, at 343 West 46th St. in New York City. Show time is 6:30 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 with a two beverage minimum. Cash only. Reservations are required, call 212-757-0758. Mention “Floral Park” for a special $5 discount.

At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, residents and community members joined with the Floral Park American Legion to honor veterans at the annual Veteran’s Day ceremonies at Memorial Park, following a march down Tulip Avenue to the park with the members of the veterans of the Legion post, American Legion Auxiliary members, Sons of the American Legion, Boy and Cub Scouts from Troops 482 and 678 and local officials.

During the ceremony, a plaque was dedicated in memory of General Kazimierz Pulaski and others of Polish heritage who have served in the U.S. military. The plaque dedication was led by members of the Polish American Congress, Long Island Division, President Grzegorz Worma and Honorary President Richard Brzozowski. An invocation was delivered by Father Peter Rozek of St. Hedwig Church, followed by a POW-MIA ceremony by Post 334 Vice Commander Matthew Cacciatore.

While parking around Long Island Rail Road train stations is typically a challenge, even on a regular work day, the holidays create more of a struggle for commuters in search of parking spots. LIRR spokesman Salvatore Arena said that ridership between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day increases by at least 10 percent; last year it was by 12 percent. Though the MTA is adding more trains to the schedule, that doesn’t ease the parking situation, which is operated not by the LIRR, but by individual municipalities in each town.

“Every station is different,” Arena said. “A good part of our parking is in the hands of the locality. They set the rules essentially.”
