On July 17, 2007, two years ago, the New Hyde Park Activity League was devastated with a flood. The force of the water lifted the cement gym floor 14 inches high.
The Town of North Hempstead has seen the damage caused by releasing the water from the sumps. They were sympathetic with our dilemma.
At the time, they stated they would like to help with finance and construction needs but nothing has come forward.
Programs have been cancelled and moved to other locations. Most were cancelled. Our program for “special needs” was moved to a smaller location which was a problem for parents who need this program. We need to renovate this building and to bring the programs back.
