Please mark your calendar for the Chamber of Commerce’s First Annual Restaurant Week, which began Monday, July 20. Participating restaurants on Franklin Avenue, Seventh Street and New Hyde Park Road are offering prix fixe menus. As a culmination to Restaurant Week, restaurants and various “eateries” will offer food outside of their establishments Friday evening, July 24, between the hours of 6 and 10 p.m. with a rain date of Saturday, July 25.
I hope that you will be able to eat at some of Garden City’s fine restaurants not only on Seventh Street but also along Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road.
Once again, compliments are due to the Recreation Department for arranging the 2009 season’s outstanding Concert Series at the Village Gazebo, located on the Village Green at the corner of Stewart and Hilton avenues.

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.

The next board of trustees meeting will be held on Thursday, Aug. 13. The meeting will be held in the Board Room at Village Hall and will begin at 8 p.m.
I encourage residents to periodically utilize the village’s website for information regarding the village’s operations, as well as items of seasonal and special interest. The address is www.gardencityny.net. One item that is listed on the village’s website home page is a listing of restaurants within the village.
