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.

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.
