Flower Shop Offers Unique Designs

Parties are brought to another level with the help of floral and event décor thanks to Flowers by Andrew Scott.

 

Located in New Hyde Park, at 816 Jericho Tpke., Andrew Scott Events is designed to be the community go-to retail florist, says owner Andrew Zecher.

 

“It was designed to be your community go-to retail florist providing the freshest quality flowers and unique floral designs,” Zecher said.

 

On Friday, July 18, there were cocktails, food and flowers to celebrate the grand opening of the shop, as well as a ribbon cutting ceremony

 

Zecher’s business doesn’t just provide floral decoration. Besides Flowers by Andrew Scott, another part of his company, deals with event décor and event planning.

 

Andrew Scott Events began four years ago in August of 2010. “It has quickly become the leading force in the wedding industry,” commented Zecher.

 

His goal, Zecher says, is to provide his clients with events that go beyond what they could even dream of.

 

The Andrew Scott Events division of the company provides upscale floral arrangements for weddings and private events, as well as full service event planning options for any occasion.

 

“We also have unique gifts and home decor items as well,” added Zecher.

 

Andrew Scott Events and Flowers by Andrew Scott have worked at locations on Long Island and beyond. Zecher’s business has provided its services at locations such as Chateau la Mer in Lindenhurst,

Cedarhurst Yacht Club in Lawrence, the Eventi Hotel in New York City, Cipriani Wall Street, as well The Inn at New Hyde Park.

 

The Garden City Hotel also receives business from Zecher. The company is the official florist of the hotel, and provides the hotel with floral designs for the lobby and restaurant.

 

Flowers by Andrew Scott takes the vision of its customers and transforms an event into something truly memorable.

News

The Sewanhaka Central High School District selected Brentwood-based Park East Construction as its bond construction management firm last week. The group will oversee the $86.6 million in improvements coming to the district. Park East will analyze school architect Wiedersum Associates’ plans before applying for New York State Education Department approval.

 

“They are going to make sure the [firms that win district contracts] do the work right,” District Superintendent Dr. Ralph Ferrie said. “They’re going to make sure [the engineer’s] drawings are right before they are sent up to New York State. [Park East] reports directly to the architect and the Board of Education to make sure what we say we’re going to do is done well.”

The Sept. 18 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education covered a range of issues, from the district’s overall performance to the sudden death of a student to fiscal and personnel issues—even to the loss of maple trees. 

 

National Ranking 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Bierwirth announced that the district’s high school had achieved an impressive level of distinction in a recent national survey that measured scholastic achievement; in fact, a great deal of Long Island made the cut, he said.

Seniors Daniella Ford and Margie Londono highlight a Sewanhaka Indians girls soccer team vying for its second straight winning season. 

 

Ford, who is in her fourth season as starting goalie for the Indians, netted a season-high 24 saves in a 3-1 loss to Valley Stream Central. 

 

“She’s a stud back there,” said Sewanhaka third-year coach Eric Premisler, whose team is 0-3 as of press time, after going 8-3-1 last season. “If we can stop a team from taking five shots because of good defense, Daniella is going to stop another 15 shots. And we’re going to have a chance to win every game.”

The Sewanhaka Indians continue to let their presence be felt in Nassau Conference II. 

 

The Indians played their second game as members of the conference on Saturday, Sept. 21, against the Long Beach Marines, topping the south shore squad 51-30. 

 

On the opening drive, the Indians relied on running back Brenton Mighty’s legs to get them into the red zone. On first and goal from the 15-yard line, quarterback Elijah Tracey hit

Michael Parasconda on a screen pass for the first score.
