For the past 65 years, Resurrection Lutheran Church has proudly stood at its Stewart Avenue location in Garden City. The church’s humble beginnings started with a petition to turn a mansion into a church and now it hosts more than 900 members for its services.
“The people sustained us,” said current Pastor Jeff Browning. “A lot of great people. Amazing, exceptional people.”
The Lutheran Church, which recently has expanded to a second location at Old Westbury, offers a variety of programs and events for all of its members. Some of the most recognizable for the community include the Night at Bethlehem, where the church recreates the classic night of Jesusbirth throughout the village, Oktoberfest and events during Holy Week.
Despite a large turnout of residents and teachers attending the meeting in protest, the Stewart Manor Board of Trustees voted 3-2 to pass a bill into law on Tuesday, Aug. 6, that will force faculty members of Stewart Manor Elementary School to pay $50 a month for parking privileges.
Stewart Manor Elementary School currently has no parking lot of its own. Previously, teachers parked on the streets surrounding the school and did not have to pay a parking fee. However, under the newly-passed law, 35 parking spaces on Dover Parkway North on the west side of the street have been designated as paid permit spaces for teachers and staff of Stewart Manor Elementary by the village at a cost of $50; this translates to $500 per 10-month school year.
On Sunday, June 2, an audience of dignitaries, Boy Scouts, families, friends and honored guests filled St. Anne’s McCloskey auditorium to standing room only capacity. Despite their vastly differing backgrounds, each individual present shared the same purpose in attending: to honor the four new Eagle Scouts: Nicholas Vernice, Jonathan Cioffi, Peter Vesnaver and Peter Levchuck. Immediately following the 2 p.m. processional, Master of Ceremonies and Scoutmaster Mr. Brian Crandall welcomed his audience and congratulated the young men on their accomplishment in attaining the rank of Eagle Scout, the highest recognition offered in Scouting.
Friends of Petra Dehler, a Garden City mother of two teenage sons who suffered a severe stroke in April, have teamed up to create a fundraising effort named in her honor—Petra’s Promise.
Petra’s Promise was founded to raise funds to help defray the cost of Petra’s longterm medical care and rehabilitation. Though she has made tremendous progress, Petra will require extensive medical care. Physically she has grown stronger but she still suffers from right side paralysis and weakness. Her condition will require a trained aid for assistance. Petra is also suffering from the effects of aphasia. Aphasia, a common aftereffect of a stroke, is a communication disorder that impairs a person’s ability to use and comprehend language. Speech therapy is the most common form of treatment.
Improvements to the village facilities provided for our senior residents has been a topic of concern at recent trustee meetings, in letters to the press and in emails. On behalf of the mayor and the entire board of trustees, we note the following points. By this release, the Public Information Committee desires to provide a brief summary of some salient points, and does not intend this release to cover all points of view or all the details related to the issue. First, a brief review of prior actions:
This should be entitled “A Story of How the Queen and Her Minions Threw a Large Party for Their Subjects.” Queen? Minions?
“Queen” Karen Squillante isn’t an event planner or a real queen. She’s a jewelry designer for Twisted K. Her “minion,” Larry Nedelka, isn’t in the field either; he’s with the Nassau County Board of Elections and the Garden City Fire Department. But between Squillante and Nedelka and the committee of other minions, they organized a great party for about 150 classmates and their spouses from Garden City High School, Class of 1973.
Robert and Maria just moved from Brooklyn with their baby daughter to 153 Whitehall Blvd. They asked the author if she could find out about their new digs via “My History Home.”
The four-bedroom traditional center hall colonial is approximately 3,300 square feet and sits on one third of an acre. It was built in 1928. It is unusual in that it has two family rooms with extensions built on over the years.
The jury is still out on whether weekly Friday night promenades will take off on Seventh Street but in spite of what seemed like an interminable heat wave,visitors trickled to town last Friday to check out the festivities. Crowds were sparse earlier in the evening and grew as the sun set. Families with children in tow and couples out for dinner generally embraced the promenade idea.
To the tunes of live music, most parties were either heading to dinner or making a beeline to TCBY Yogurt for a frosty treat.
Garden City seniors often flock to the Senior Center on Golf Club Lane to beat the heat. On Thursday, they found another way to escape the sweltering temperatures - at Village Hall.
The board of trustees held their monthly meeting there, and the public participation portion featured many seniors voicing their opinion on the center’s future.
Many were under the impression that a renovation would be underway by now, but the board is continuing to investigate all their options. This includes renovation, but also a possible move to the Garden City Casino on Cathedral Lane.
For Garden City native John Warren, the dream is to be on tour all the time doing what he loves. The vocalist and guitarist of Tin Can Collective is moving one step closer to his dream when he and his band members will open for Matt Pond at Revolution Bar and Music Hall in Amityville on Aug. 9.
Joining 23-year-old vocalist/guitarist John Warren in this coed quartet is his 27-year-old sibling Jessica Warren (vocals, guitar); 23-year-old bassist Kenny Russo and 25-year-old drummer Katelyn Triolo.
