Governor Attends Town Meeting
Governor George Pataki recently joined the newly-appointed Director of Homeland Security Tom Ridge and a team of New York State officials during a town hall meeting on security issues at Hofstra University. The hour-long meeting featured questions from students and Long Island citizens ranging from security of local bridges to how to best protect the area's children.
Division Avenue HS Varsity Basketball

Levittown PAL Lacrosse - Stick With It
The Levittown PAL Lacrosse program will be back in full swing come the new year. Once again, varsity lacrosse players from the area high schools will be assisting with instructing the PAL players for the winter clinic program. With the care and assistance of their high school coaches, the varsity players are instrumental in improving the skill level for all the PAL members whether they are brand new to the sport or "seasoned" veterans. The Levittown PAL program provides gym time on Saturdays in January and March for the PAL players as well as varsity players from Island Trees, Division and MacArthur. This is a winning situation for everyone as the varsity and PAL players all get an early jump on conditioning and readying their skills for the upcoming spring season. In addition, the younger players get to meet and interact with their future varsity coaches at an early age. Hopefully, this nurturing will result in a long lasting relationship with the coaches as well as the sport of lacrosse. Anyone who would like to register for the winter lacrosse indoor clinic should call the PAL office for more information at 579-7999.
Thank You to the Residents of the Levittown Fire District
