Senior Recreation Center to be renovated, senior programs enhanced

Garden City seniors stand poised to receive their fair share of budget dollars. At a meeting held at the Garden City Senior Recreation Center on Monday, March 19, Department of Recreation head Kevin E. Ocker announced that $650,000 has been earmarked to renovate and possibly expand the existing Recreation Center building on Gold Club Lane, and $30,000 “in new activity money” has been allocated for senior trips and programs.

Ocker’s announcement comes on the heels of budget planning sessions for fiscal 2012-13. Seniors have intensified their lobbying efforts to obtain proportionately equitable funds over the past five months, according to George Salem, co-president of the Garden City Retired Men’s Club. To aid seniors in their requests, Deputy Mayor John Watras spearheaded the formation of the Senior Liaison Committee last October. The committee serves as a communications link between seniors and village officials.

Taniella Jo Harrison honored for success in business

When Garden City resident Taniella Jo Harrison wakes up every morning, finding new ways to help others is likely on her mind. In 10 short years, the busy executive vice president of Tri-County Home Nursing Services in Westbury has taken her family’s business and increased revenue by nearly 500 percent, quadrupling the size of her company’s work force.

A Fort Lauderdale, FL native, it seems Harrison’s path to success was destined from childhood. One of her earliest memories was when she and her sister would come to New York every summer to visit their grandmother, Ella Ferguson, owner of Tri-County. “When my grandmother opened her first office on 42nd Street in Manhattan 30 years ago, she introduced us as the president and vice president of Tri-County. Of course, we were 8 and 9 years old. That kind of stuck in mind,” she said.

FAA/Port Authority reps ditch TVASNAC meeting

The term “ditched” is often used to describe aircrafts that are abandoned before making a crash landing. However, it equally describes the feeling emanating from Nassau County residents after they learned the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Port Authority would not be attending the last TVASNAC (Town/Village Aircraft Safety Noise & Abatement committee) meeting on Mon., Feb. 27 in Garden City.

For the first time in its 40-year history, TVASNAC’s monthly meeting was held in lower level of the library in the Village of Garden City rather than its traditional location in the Village of Lawrence. “This is one of our first meetings outside [Lawrence] in an effort to outreach to the communities that we serve,” TVASNAC’s Executive Director Kendall Lampkin told a standing-room only crowd.
