Assemblyman Tom Alfano announced that he is sponsoring his third annual free dental clinic for children will be held last week of July from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Dutch Broadway School in Elmont. The dental clinic is a cooperative effort with NYU Dental School, Gateway Youth Outreach and the Elmont Union Free School District. The services provided by the clinic are free-of-charge.
In her time in the Elmont School District, Dr. Maria Palandra was more than just the school superintendent, she was a fixture in the community, a leader and symbol of Elmont. Earning the respect of the community, Dr. Palandra feels she accomplished all her goals and the time to move on had come.
