While summer brings some fun in the sun, especially in our backyard pools, it is important to practice pool safety and prevent accidental drownings. Before the summer even officially began on June 21, three Long Island children had already drowned in homeowner swimming pools.
Accidents can happen quickly and with little warning. According to Safe Kids Worldwide, more than 800 children ages 1 to 14 drown each year across the United States. It’s a good idea to set down definite pool rules covering use. Here are some guidelines for you and your family to practice:
Once again, compliments are due to the Recreation Department for arranging the 2010 season’s outstanding Concert Series at the Village Gazebo, located on the Village Green at the corner of Stewart and Hilton avenues.
This week’s program is scheduled for Thursday, July 22, and will feature Terry Nova Little Big Band. The program will begin at 7:15 p.m. and admission is free. Please bring your lawn chair or blanket and enjoy a very pleasant evening. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held at the Cultural and Performing Arts Center at Cluett Hall at the St. Paul’s School. Please call the Recreation Department at 465-4075, with questions pertaining to the concert.
Every summer, the Town of Hempstead’s Summer Concert Series, hosted by the Department of Parks and Recreation, brings talented musicians to perform at the town’s neighborhood parks. Our lineup this year features an exciting range of musical genres, from rock music and the sounds of the Caribbean to the swinging hits of the 1930s and ’70s disco classics.
I am pleased to report that this year was a safe one in our village. The Police Department has reported that it was a relatively quiet one and there were only a few incidents reported.
With the arrival of the warm summer months comes the opportunity for parents to spend more time having fun with their kids. One great way to spend quality time as a family is by attending one of the town’s Children’s Summer Festival shows together.

I would like to offer congratulations on behalf of the board of trustees to the Garden City Girls Lacrosse team, Coach Diane Chapman and Director of Athletics Nancy Kalafus for winning its fifth straight title with a 20-10 win over Bedford’s Fox Lane at SUNY Cortland last Saturday. This is the third time Coach Chapman has led the girls to five straight state crowns for the Garden City Girls Lacrosse Team. The Trojans finished this season 21-0. It is truly a testament to the team for all their hard work and dedication this season.
