Hance Family’s Annual Run And Fun

On Saturday, May 17, hundreds of supporters visited Floral Park for the Hance Family Foundation’s 5th Annual 5k Race/Walk and Family Fun Day in memory of Emma, Alyson and Katie Hance. The clouds cleared just in time for more than 2,000 walkers and runners, a record number of participants for this annual event, to participate in the 5K, mile and pee-wee runs, which kicked off at Centennial Gardens in Floral Park.

Dozens of corporate sponsors and individual families supported this year’s event, which included services, raffle items, and monetary donations.


After the run and walk events, Family Fun Day visitors enjoyed bouncy houses, Katie’s Dress Up Corner, the Beautiful Me tent, the pony rides and petting zoo, and more.

Save the date: The Inaugural Beautiful Me Gala will be held on Thursday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.

Visit www.hancefamilyfoundation.org for information about the organization or to learn more about year-round events.

For others, Tammany Hall was a lifesaver tossed into the turbulent and unforgiving sea of 19th- and early 20th-century New York City. The author of a new book about Tammany Hall, Terry Golway, will speak about these complexities at the Wednesday, Nov. 12 meeting of the Irish Cultural Society of the Garden City area.

Golway’s book Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics has been well received in book reviews. His talk will acknowledge the misgovernment of Tammany Hall with its creation of “Boss” Tweed as the very face of political corruption. But he will also argue that Tammany Hall was an influence on the progressive legislation which helped working people, the Irish among them, to form a vibrant middle class in the United States.
