Seaford High School AP scholars are saluted


Federation of Organizations hosted a Senior Volunteer Recognition Luncheon last month at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The event, which was attended by over 500 guests, served to honor senior volunteer organizations on Long Island. FISH of Wantagh was selected to represent the Nassau County Retired Senior Volunteer Program, one of four organizations honored for providing volunteer services to their communities. Sally Lubell, director of FISH (Friends in Safe Hands), was one of four featured speakers at the occasion. She spoke of the mission of FISH which is to provide safe, reliable and friendly door-to-door transportation for elderly

residents of Wantagh and Bellmore to medical appointments and for other vital errands. She pointed out that FISH of Wantagh is a completely volunteer operation, run out of members’ homes with transportation provided by volunteer drivers using their own cars. FISH services approximately 90 elderly neighbors, provides around 850 round trips per year and relies on 50-60 volunteers from Wantagh, Bellmore and surrounding communities including Massapequa, Merrick, Seaford, Levittown and East Meadow. FISH of Wantagh has been in existence for 42 years. Mrs. Lubell told the audience that FISH was founded in April of 1970 by a group of Wantagh residents. “They were following the

trend of a global FISH movement which had begun in the early ’60s. The idea was to remedy a general social malaise of the time by bringing back old-fashioned neighborliness and caring,” she explained. Although at one time there may have been nearly 32 independent FISH chapters on Long Island, today almost all except for the Wantagh chapter have disappeared. Mrs. Lubell noted that “we have come to focus exclusively on the plight of senior neighbors who live in a cloud of worry about ‘how to get there.’ Whatever it is, wherever – ‘getting there’ is the problem.” Over time, the volunteer roster of FISH has dwindled significantly. As the original volunteers aged and retired, the

number of FISH volunteers has fallen from as many as 100 to less than 60. FISH of Wantagh finds itself short on both drivers and phone coordinators. Any residents of Wantagh, Bellmore or surrounding towns who would like to volunteer are encouraged to leave a number for callback with the FISH answering service: 861-6032. As Sally says, “If you can give one day a month or even as little as an hour, we welcome your participation.” FISH of Wantagh is a nonsectarian community organization partially funded by the Nassau County Office for the Aging through the New York State Office for the Aging. Supplemental insurance is provided and drivers are reimbursed for mileage.

An ounce of prevention... Next Tuesday is National Night Out, when communities across the country gather for fun and to get to know their law enforcement friends better. Around here, the Nassau County and Freeport police, together with other community organizations, are hosting a Night Out at Cow Meadow Park in Freeport, starting at 6 p.m. Gangs and teen violence can be prevented. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Police and their communities always need to know and work with each other. As they say, “If you see something, say something.” And one way is for police to visit classrooms and become known and trusted friends of the kids. Another is to organize sports events for kids and teens to help them use their energy in positive ways, and learn teamwork skills that will serve them in whatever jobs they choose. Where young people have hope of a good future, the lure of crime is less strong. Our police are doing these things and more to help build the character of law-abiding citizens. Neighborhood watch groups could always benefit from more young members, just like the auxiliary police and junior firefighters. And these young members can develop skills that could help with their future careers. For example, more than one young ambulance volunteer has become a medical doctor. National Night Out highlights the importance of community policing, work that goes on every day of the year.

VIETNAM VETS PICNIC: The Vietnam War Veterans Association's Family Picnic was held at Wantagh Park on July 21. For over 10 years this annual event has been held to bring together not only the Vietnam War veterans but their families which include their children and grandchildren.

SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF THIS: Frank and Donna McKenna of Levittown recently announced the birth of twin daughters, 18inch Kate Lorraine (left), at 6 pounds, 1 ounce, and 20-inch Maeve Elaine, at 5 pounds, 10 ounces. The arrival date was May 26, at West Islip’s Good Samaritan Hospital. Said Frank: “Maeve and Kate’s bir thdate made this Memorial Day weekend even more memorable.” Both parents are public library directors (Donna of Williston Park, and Frank of Seaford). The Citizen inquired of the parents: “Did the twins arrive on time?” Both replied in agreement: “Yes they did, but if overdue, there would’ve been no late fines.”

Building upon his Fit Nassau initiative to help residents live a healthy lifestyle, Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) last week seeking the establishment of two bicycle rental concessions at Cedar Creek Park in Seaford and Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. “Recreational cycling has become increasingly more popular as it provides everyone with an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while taking part in a healthy activity. Bike riding offers healthy and family-friendly fun,” said County Executive Mangano. “We are committed to providing residents and visitors with a wide

range of recreational activities in our parks, and biking along Nassau County’s paths and trailways is a great way to enhance the experience.” Nassau County is requesting proposals from all individuals and firms that have interest in managing and operating rental stations to provide bicycles as well as the repair and sale of bicycle equipment accessories at the two county parks. The successful bidder may also suggest additional locations in the Nassau County parks system. Prospective vendors must have a history of community involvement as well as extensive experience in the bicycle rental business. Cedar Creek Park is adjacent to a

Cedar Creek Park to get bike rental? 4.5 mile paved bike path that runs along the Wantagh State Parkway before ending at Ocean Parkway. The state Department of Transportation has planned an additional 4.5 mile bike path to connect Ocean Parkway between the Wantagh Parkways and Captree State Park in the Town of Babylon. Eisenhower Park, at 930 acres, is one of the largest public spaces in the New York metropolitan area – larger than Central Park. It has approximately 20 miles of paved bike paths. ©©©

Wantagh Summer Recreation Program is fun and successful by Shana Berman The students from the elementary schools in Wantagh enjoyed the Wantagh Foundation for Educational Excellence Summer Recreation Program. The five-week program is open to all Wantagh School District students in kindergarten through fifth grade. During the five-week program, the campers enjoyed arts and crafts, puppetry, music, bowling at Wantagh Lanes, sprinklers for grades K-2, and grades 3-5 went swimming at the Newbridge Road Park Pool. They also had walking trips to the Wantagh Public Library and then cooled off with a refreshing treat at Hershey’s Ice Cream Parlor. All campers also had an opportunity to

paint a ceramic project from Cool Crafts on site. As a culmination to their puppetry class, all groups participated in our second annual puppet show. Their Music classes were filled with songs and they made musical instruments. Many projects including 2-D and 3-D works of art were created during arts and crafts. This year’s program was a great success. On behalf of the Wantagh Foundation for Educational Excellence and the staff of the recreation program, we look forward to seeing your children next summer. For more information regarding the Wantagh Foundation for Educational Excellence Summer Recreation Program, please call Ralph Spagnolo at 781-5055.
