Colton Weage of Floral Park was one of the dozens of kid-athletes from Long Island who participated in an all-inclusive sports clinic at Hofstra University on Feb. 8, from the same organization who brought the all-inclusive playground to Eisenhower Park, Let All The Children Play (LATCP) of Jericho. Hofstra’s student-athletes coached baseball, softball, and soccer to the participants.
The event was open to all children, those with and without disabilities. A light dinner was provided following the clinics and then participants were treated to a Hofstra Pride men’s basketball game.
The LATCP playground is located near parking field 4 in Eisenhower Park. Let ALL The Children Play (LATCP) is a recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible. Visit www.LATCP.org for more information about the organization and its other upcoming events.

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.
