Anton Newspapers Receive Village Officials Award
Publisher of Anton Community Newspapers Angela Anton accepted an award from the Nassau County Village Officials Association (VOA) at their December meeting at the Westbury Manor on Dec. 17. The award was presented to Anton by Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto who praised the Anton Community Newspapers. Venditto said, "In my excess of 20 years of working with town government I wanted you to know how we really feel about the Anton Newspapers. In 20 years of working with Angela Anton's publications I cannot recall when I've picked up the newspapers and felt that the Town of Oyster Bay was inaccurately represented. The Anton newspapers are accurate, concise, and have precise reporting. Thank you so much for what you give to the community." Michael Peragine, VOA president said Mr. Venditto asked to make the presentation to the Anton Newspapers publisher himself. The VOA also presented an award to Wendy Kreitzman, editor of the Great Neck Record, an Anton newspaper.

More than 300 soccer teams registered for the Columbus Day weekend tournament, however, due to other engagements only 146 teams were able to participate on the Thanksgiving weekend.
