The Sons of Italy, Cellini Lodge No. 2206 Italian Festival in New Hyde Park garnered a solid turnout during its five-day run at Michael J. Tully Park last week. According to Lodge First Vice President Alfonso Squillante, the annual festival had more 1,500 people each day, with 3,200 people on Saturday night for the fireworks display.

 

“We’ve had a great turnout, the community has responded very positively,” said Squillante. “Last year we had 12,000 people over the course of five days and this year we are looking at record-breaking numbers.”

Sewanhaka High School alum Vince Scuderi took over the Metropolitan Room in Manhattan this past Sunday with his group, the Out of the Box Big Band. 

 

“The concert went well, with just the right amount of fulfilled expectations and controlled and chaotic surprise to keep the audience and the musicians on the edge of their seats and always wanting more,” said Scuderi.

 

The Out of the Box Big Band is made up of 17 pieces, which includes five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, a piano, guitar and string bass. Sometimes, they also had a vocalist to the mix. 


Sports

Students in the Karatatot program at Charles Water Karate & Fitness recently received fitness tips.

Major League Lacrosse (MLL) recently announced Denver Outlaws backup goalie and Herricks High School graduate Charlie Cipriano as Warrior Defensive Player of the Week in recognition of his performance in Denver’s win over the Florida Launch.
