Letter: Thank You

I wish to take this opportunity to thank all our local residents and community organizations that assisted in this year’s community blood drive. Through everyone’s efforts we were able to collect 279 pints of whole blood on Friday June 28. This year’s drive and blood donations will go to benefit one of our local children, Owen Hogan. Owen’s illness requires numerous blood transfusions.

 

I wish to also thank the Wednesday’s Mothers Club for establishing a fund raising effort through the sale of delicious homemade baked goods at this year’s Community Blood Drive. It added to the success of the day in addition to raising funds for the Hogan family in their time of need.

 

It is during the summer months that the spare blood supply in the NY area is at its lowest levels. Prior to our Community Drive the spare blood supply in our area would only last another day and a half.

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.
