On Display:  

Susan Tango, Print Maker

Susan Tango’s work is an interpretation of specific visual memories. She keeps a visual scrapbook of ideas that she draws from for inspiration. Sometimes these images are her own photos or scenes just remembered. Natural settings, texture and light are used to create particular moods that are recalled with the images. The bulk of her printmaking skills came from courses and workshops with Dan Weldon and Jonathan Fabricant. This included intaglio printing (drypoint, engraving, solarprints, etching, soft ground, embossing) and relief printing (woodcuts, linocuts, collage) as well as monoprints. This training included a 10-day seminar and exhibition in Mykonos, Greece with Dan and the Japanese printmaker Takiji Kubo. Syosset Public Library, Ongoing.

Underhill Preserve Trail Clearing

Work off your holiday feast while doing some good for the environment. Help clear the trails at Underhill Preserve in Jericho in time for the Christmas Bird Count in December (this is the most productive count area and the trails have grown in terribly). Tools, gloves and snacks (no Thanksgiving leftovers…promise!) will be provided for the volunteers. This is a great chance to explore this preserve which is closed to the public. Due to the sensitive location, the group will meet in front of the Starbucks in the Whole Foods shopping center in Jericho on Route 107 then carpool to the preserve. Registration is an absolute must:  516-695-0783. 10 a.m.


December 1

Rob's Run

Runners from all over the New York Metropolitan area and beyond are invited to take part in the 21st anniversary edition of New York Blood Center’s Rob’s Run, a 5-kilometer cross country race which will be held at Stillwell Woods Park in Syosset. Rob’s Run will start at 9:15 a.m. Registration and pickup will be at the Center for Developmental Disabilities (72 South Woods Road, directly next door to Stillwell Woods) from 7:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. As in the past, Rob’s Run is dedicated to the memory of Rob Lauterborn, an extraordinary human being, talented runner, and good friend, who was taken from us at far too young an age. If you are a veteran of Rob’s Run, or if you are otherwise familiar with the beauties of this trail, you know what a great morning this is going to be. If you’ve never had the nerve to try running cross country before, this is an easy way of introducing yourself to the wonders of the woods and of getting an exciting new perspective on autumn running. Entry fees are $25 for those who preregister and $30 for those who wait till the day of the Run to sign up. There is a 50-percent discount for high school and younger runners. Everyone who signs up is guaranteed to get one of the great giveaways that have always been a Rob’s Run tradition. Awards will be presented to the top three male and female finishers overall and to the top three male and female finishers in each of 17 five-year age groups ranging from 10 and under to 80 and over. Team awards will be presented to high school and middle school boys and girls teams, and to male, female, and co-ed teams in the open, masters and senior masters divisions. For entry forms or more information, call Sue or Linda at the GLIRC office at 516-349-7646. You can also register online at www.glirc.org.

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
