County Honors Floral Park Firefighters

Nassau County officials honored 29 firefighters from across Nassau County in the county’s annual firematic awards ceremony held in the legislative chambers in Mineola. Commended at the event were 1st Battalion Chairman/Ex-Chief Kenneth B. Fairben of the Floral Park Fire Department and Lieutenant Richard Harris of the South Floral Park Fire Department for the hard work and dedication they put in to protecting Nassau County’s residents and property. Fairben was also honored for his years of dedication to the community.

 

“It is times, such as Superstorm Sandy, when your courage shines but it is everyday heroism that personifies our Nassau County Firefighters,” said County Executive Ed Mangano. “We gather today to honor our brave first responders who have gone above and beyond the call of duty and consistently risk their own lives to protect our Nassau County residents. Heroism, courage and sacrifice are just three words to describe their dedication. Each and every day, firefighters wake up and respond to emergencies with a single goal: protecting the public, rarely with concern for their own safety.”

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.
