On Monday, May 5, the Floral Park Lions Club held its annual Mickey Finn Swing Into Spring golf tournament. The tournament is named in honor of Mickey Finn, a former Lion and a leader in the community. Fifty-two enthusiastic golfers enjoyed a sunny day at the North Shore Towers Golf Course.
The day began with breakfast in the clubhouse, and continued with 18 holes using a “best ball format” and lunch at the turns. The day concluded with dinner at Crabtree’s Restaurant in Floral Park.
Dinner included an awards ceremony and a raffle of prizes that were donated by local businesses. All of the profits from the outing will go to charity.

Speaking for a group of local residents, Santo Cipolla is asking the Sewanhaka Central High School District to revisit a 28-year-old policy that allows one community to attend any of the five district high schools, including Floral Park Memorial High School.
“It was a policy that was created to desegregate South Floral Park and a portion of Floral Park called Jamaica Square,” Cipolla said at a school board meeting last week. “It is our belief that there is not equal access to the schools and violates the equal protection clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.”
