‘Empty Bowls’ Filled

Stratford Road Elementary School recently hosted its third annual Empty Bowls Festival. The Empty Bowls Project is a grassroots effort to help feed the hungry. Stratford Road teachers, administrators and staff began planning the event last fall.

Students made homemade clay bowls with the help of artist-in-residence Cliff Mendelson at the school’s Day in Clay. With the direction of their art teacher, Debbie Mittleman, each fourth grader’s clay bowl was painted and fired by another fourth grader. The bowls emphasize the true communal spirit of Empty Bowls, and were used to serve food at the festival.

Students, staff members and parents all participated in this school-wide event, which helps raise awareness of hunger on Long Island and collects donations for Island Harvest—the largest hunger relief organization on Long Island. Last year’s event brought in more than 2,200 pounds of food and $1,000 in cash donations.

Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.

A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.

A special series of medical lectures will be held throughout the country in October. The Plainview Hospital is one of the stops on the tour.

On Sunday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 p.m., a free lecture will be presented by Franz Gringinger, MD, Austria and A.W. Arends, MD, Germany. These specialists are members of the Medical Scientific Group (MWF), a part of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.

Dr. Gringinger earned his degree at the University of Vienna in 1987 and from the beginning of his medical career, was interested in alternative methods.
