The 56 Annual Boy Scout convocation was recently held at Saint Agnes Cathedral by Bishop Robert J. Brennan. Thirteen boys and One leader from Holy Spirit Church Parish/Boy Scout Troop 298 were among 160 scouts from Nassau/Suffolk that received religious awards.
Gregory Burger, Daniel Celic, Matthew D’Amico, Wade Fitzgerald, Connor Garvin, James Garvin, Joesph Jonas, Robert Pomara and Michael Sokol received the Ad Altare Dei Emblem.

New Hyde Park Deputy Mayor Lawrence Montreuil announced at a recent village board meeting that New Hyde Park Auto Body’s expansion application was approved.
“There was a special use application before this board on Aug. 20, which we heard the case of 910 Third Avenue,” he said. “The owner of New Hyde Park Auto Body will expand his business to the other side of the tracks.”
Boy Scout Troop 298 lent a helping hand to a local residence, doing a major cleanup project that encompassed landscaping a home on North 10th Street. Assistant Scoutmaster Rich Pallisco and Andrew Rezin, the troop’s scoutmaster, led a team of six boys to aide two elderly sisters in cleaning up their home.
Armed with lawnmowers, rakes and weedwackers, the clean-up took about two hours at the 40x100 property, according to Pallisco. The homes owners, two elderly women, who were not identified, can’t care for the home anymore.
The summer of 2013 was no run-of-the-mill downtime for Karishma Tank. The Herricks High School alum wanted to help. Fortunately, she connected with the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMH-LI).
Through Bank of America’s Student Leaders program, Tank was one of 225 high school juniors and seniors from around the country who participated in eight-week, paid summer internships at local nonprofit organizations.
Tank is in her freshman year at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, where she plans to study finance or operations and information management. The 17-year-old is also enrolled in Penn’s engineering school, where she wants to tackle computer science or engineering. While Tank’s not yet set on a career, she feels the internship made nonprofit work a goal in life.
Screw guns and table saws have been buzzing at all hours of the day at the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park, working to complete $2.5 million in renovations before its Oct. 10 gala event, which will showcase the updated facility.
Dubbed “Project Design 2013,” 18 of the 42 bedrooms in the 27-year-old building have been stripped and renovated at no cost to the foundation.
To alleviate some of the stress during a child’s illness, the Ronald McDonald House serves more than 1,000 families each year. The house was expanded in 2005 and the 24 rooms that haven’t been renovated have been housing current residents during construction. Any incoming families would be sent to an interim hotel, with the bill footed by the foundation and local sponsors.
Torrential downpours at the kickoff of the 18th Annual New Hyde Park Street Fair nearly crippled the village mainstay. However, sunny skies prevailed at around 12:30 p.m., encouraging fair-goers to emerge from awnings and storefronts on Jericho Turnpike to continue the yearly Saturday tradition.
While the weather initially dampened the footprint of the fair, which stretched west from New Hyde Park Road to Lakeville Road, it didn’t stop attendees from perusing vendors and local shops.

The Water Authority of Western Nassau County is expecting to move into to its new New Hyde Park facility by early October, according to officials. Authority reps need to finalize paperwork with the Town of North Hempstead and obtain a certificate of occupancy to move in.
