News

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce presents its third annual Craft and Gift Fair on Sunday, Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library parking lot. Appealing to all ages, admission to the event is free and the first 500 attendees will receive a free t-shirt.

With the theme of “Family Fun Day,” this year the Chamber craft fair will feature Plainview’s country music sensation, Lisa Matassa. She will take the stage at 1 p.m., performing songs from her most recent album “Somebody’s Baby.” With southern sensibilities and a voice to match, Plainview resident Lisa Matassa brings the charm of living under a Nashville skyline to Long Island. Defining “Long Island Country” as “the greatest storytelling of a country song and the edginess of New York rock and roll,” Matassa has seen the island’s interest in her chosen genre expand greatly in just a few short years.

If you’re like most people, your medicine cabinet might be a jumbled assortment of boxes, bottles and tubes.  

That innocent bit of disorganization in your medicine cabinet might actually pose a risk if you’re not careful, according to Leonard Langino, a pharmacist with North Shore Long Island Jewish (LIJ) Medical Group, who recently held a lecture on the subject at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library.
