WTC Scholarships Now Law
Assemblyman Tom Alfano applauded the signing into law legislation he strongly supported and advocated establishing the World Trade Center Memorial Scholarship Program. The program will provide college scholarships to family members and dependents of those killed or seriously disabled in the September 11 terrorist attacks, and to survivors who were seriously disabled. The bill also expands the existing memorial scholarships for children and spouses of deceased firefighters and peace officers to include emergency medical technicians who have died in the line of duty.
Football Jamboree Scores Touchdown!
This past Saturday, football season kicked off for teams in Elmont and Franklin Square, as the first annual jamboree attracted thousands from area communities to watch children from 9 - 12. Assemblyman Tom Alfano greeted the teams from the two communities as they took to the field. Some 1,000 parents and players from the west-end attended the first annual event, which served as a kickoff for each of the league's seasons. "It was a hot day on the field, but the players are showing their stuff and making some great hits and plays," said Alfano as he went from game to game. Coaches C.J. Williams, John Marco Militano, Tommy Nocella, Paulie Mccrae, T.J. Dangerfield, Mary Witter, David Dangerfield and coaches from throughout the leagues volunteer their time to this really worthwhile activity.
