Residents are reminded that village offices will close at noon next Friday, April 6, in observance of Good Friday and will reopen on Monday, April 9. Correspondence may be dropped in the letter slot at the front of Village Hall.
Congratulations to Trustees John J. Watras, Nicholas P. Episcopia, Andrew J. Cavanaugh and Brian C. Daughney on their election last Tuesday. I believe the board can achieve a great deal over the next year working together.
I also want to express gratitude to all of the many residents who made the time to vote in the annual village election and encourage you to become familiar with your property owners’ associations and to become involved with it.
Estates POA congratulates Community Agreement Candidates: Brian Daughney, Nick Episcopia, Andrew Cavanaugh and John Watras on their re-election victory during the General Election that was held this past Tuesday. For nearly 100 years, The Community Agreement, has proven itself to be a very viable form of government that has allowed Garden City to be one of the most special and unique towns in the country. This past election results reconfirmed our town’s overwhelming support for the Community Agreement.
I would like to ask you to do your part to support all businesses within Garden City. I would also like to encourage all residents and professionals within Garden City to shop locally. Your patronage will be appreciated and is needed.
Many residents consider shopping and dining in our business districts as “experience shopping” because they meet friends and neighbors along the way and have an opportunity to interact with them. This is in stark contrast to frantically dashing through the crowds in the mall or the big box retailers.
Daylight Savings Time began this past Sunday, March 11. Residents are reminded that clocks should have been set one hour ahead.
Each of us is currently serving on the village board of trustees. Although we are not running for election in the upcoming March 20 village election, we urge you to come and vote and support the Community Agreements Candidates.
We have all lived in the village for many years, from 10 years to our whole lives. We, like you, are taxpayers and are concerned with taxes and costs. We all have children who have either been raised in the village or are now watching our children grow up here.
It is my opinion that the quality of life in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and surrounding areas has greatly improved, culturally, with the construction and opening of Molloy College’s $28 million state-of-the-art Madison Theatre, where Broadway-quality performances are being presented on a regular basis, closer to our homes and at a great savings, compared to The Great White Way’s ticket prices.
This year the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, formerly held in Garden City for many years, has been relocated to Mineola by the organizers because of the cost imposed by our Village for Police overtime. However, the organizers, the Irish American Society of Nassau, Suffolk & Queens, Inc., continue to invite us to march and/or view the parade, which will be held on Sunday, March 4, 2012.
