One of the more successful parts of the Garden City Public Schools athletic curriculum, the Trojans football team has enjoyed the fruits of victory coming out of the rigorous program Head Coach Tom Flatley has instituted over the years. The latest feather in the squad’s collective cap was its recent capture of the 2012 Long Island Championship on Saturday, Dec. 1 at Stony Brook University. For this championship win, GC’s first since 2009, the Riverhead Blue Waves were the victims and ended up coming out on the losing end of a 29-16 score. While Spencer Bais was the hero in helping his team secure a victory over Wantagh Warriors during the tilt to claim the Nassau County Conference II Championship the prior Sunday, on this particular Saturday, QB Brett Stewart led the charge to securing Long Island bragging rights. The recent capture of Garden City High School’s fifth overall Long Island Championship is a testament to the hard work put in by the team and the gold standard of leadership executed by Head Coach Flatley. And for this, Garden City Life and all of Anton Community Newspapers would like to extend its heartfelt congratulations to the Trojans for bringing the championship home.

The Senior Center Expansion and Rehabilitation Project took a major step forward this month when the Garden City Board of Trustees unanimously voted in a special meeting to accept the gift of the model house from the Doubleday Court Development on Franklin Avenue. Project developers, The Engel Burman Group, graciously donated the house to the
Incorporated Village of Garden City. The one-story structure was originally built to serve as a model and sales office for the Franklin Avenue project.
“We are glad to have The Engel Burman Group as part of our village and thank them for this most generous gift. We look forward to providing a state-of-the art facility for our seniors in Garden City,” Mayor John Watras said.
