Obituary: Louis Ferrara

The Plainview-Old Bethpage Board of Education recently reflected on the passing of former Superintendent of Schools Louis Ferrara during a school board meeting last week on Monday. Ferrara, veteran of the US Army who served as Superintendent in the 1980s, died two weeks ago on June 12.

Board of Education Vice President Ginger Lieberman remembered Ferrara as “a wonderful person,” and the school district posted a memorial letter on his tenure as superintendent by PCT President Morty Rosenfeld, stating: “Since I received the news, I’ve had a flood of memories, most of them of adversarial encounters with him, me the new union president, Lou the up-from-the-ranks superintendent who seemingly knew every detail of the operation of the district.”

Ferrara was a beloved husband of RoseMary, loving father of Anne Ferrara Kurzman, Louis Ferrara and Rosemary & Lee Mc Allister, dear brother of Harry, and cherished grandfather of Colleen, Katelyn, Matthew, Christie and Jay. He was buried at Holy Rood Cemetery.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.

“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.

The Columbus Day Parade played host a to a very special group this year. The Family Residences and Essential Enterprises’ (FREE) Players Drum Corps made history as they became the first special needs drum corps to march in the New York City Columbus Day Parade.

The group marched up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 72nd Street with a red carpet performance on Fifth Avenue between 67th and 69th Streets.
