Now Garden City may rightfully be known as being ground zero for having an outstanding school system, stellar athletic teams and an incomparable music program, but a gander at this week’s issue of Garden City Life reveals that the hills, or in this case village, is alive with the spirit of art. Eileen Moynahan and Suzie Alvey were both recently honored by the Town of Hempstead for each landing a photo in the 2014 Town of Hempstead Calendar contest. This after third-grade students Vanessa Law and Gabriel Psilakis did the same in a calendar contest recently held by our publisher, Anton Community Newspapers. Not to be outdone, Garden City High School junior Katie Roscoe won the under-18 division of the 2014 Thames21 Photography Competition, in which more than 1,000 entrants participated. Lastly, Arleen Rueth Urban heeded my call for art submissions with three pastel portraits in this issue which are truly excellent. It’s enough to make you wonder if Garden City is pulling double duty as an artists’ colony.

Prior to the start of high school running season, Garden City’s Physical Therapy Options (PTO) had an opportunity to provide a presentation to members of Sacred Heart Academy’s cross country team. Team members gathered at Garden City’s New York Running Company to learn strategies and tips for a successful fall season.
PTO staff members Dr. Meghan Goetz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and PTO Aide Mike Murphy discussed the importance of stretching to prevent injury and provided strategies and tips for success for the high school runner.
