2nd Annual FPM Basketball Camp

Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs will be hosting Team Green Basketball Academy at Floral Park Memorial High School from July 8 to 11.The camp is open to children of all skill levels ages 5-18. The camp fee is $250, which includes a t-shirt, lunch, drawstring backpack, and prizes during contests. 

 

Green attended high school at St. Mary’s where he lead them to a #1 national ranking, and was also selected a McDonalds All-American. Danny played his collegiate ball at the University of North Carolina. During the 2008-2009 season, Green led the Tar Heels to a national championship over Michigan State.

 

Green is now heralded as the winningest player at UNC, with 123 career victories in games he played in. One of the most notable aspects of his game is his versatility.

 

Green is the only Tar Heel ever to have 1,000 points (1,368), 500 rebounds (590), 200 assists (256), 100 blocks (155) and 100 steals (160). He is now a starter for the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs.

 

“I’m really excited to host a camp in Floral Park. I’m starting to build a strong relationship with Floral Park, from hosting a successful camp there last year and playing in the Malone Mulhall Benefit Game in the past, it’s a great town to work with,” said Green.

 

“Team Green Basketball Academy is the best camp I’ve ever attended. Being able to learn from Danny and the coaches/trainers who have worked with other NBA players was so cool. I learned so much” said Andrew Visciglia, current sixth-grader at Floral Park-Bellerose School who attended Team Green Basketball Academy last year. 

 

The camp is limited to the first 80 registrants and is based on a first come first serve basis so register quickly. To register: send checks or money order payable to Team Green at P.O. Box 6391 N.

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.”
