The WHCSA also purchased the decorative street sign poles and decorative strap on street signs seen along Hempstead Ave. through grants received from Senator Dean Skelos. We must thank Supervisor Murray and Councilman Ed Ambrosino for making sure that the street signs and poles would be installed. Recently we purchased five more benches and asked Angelo DeVito owner of Rocco DeVito Landscape Contractor, located at 15 Garden City Blvd., West Hempstead to install them. In addition, he also filled and added evergreens to 3 of our new planters. Angelo refused to be paid for this even though he had to have two of his employees work with him. Installing benches is very expensive because it is labor intensive and requires more than two people to help lift the benches and planters into the truck and deliver them to various locations. The same help is needed to take the benches from the truck and carefully position

World Trade Center Steel Escorted To West Hempstead on Wednesday, March 28 When the West Hempstead Community Support Association (WHCSA) contacted Assemblyman Ed Ra asking for his help to obtain a section of steel from the World Trade Center for the community, he quickly sprung into action. One of the things he did was to enlist the aid of his colleague Senator Dean Skelos and they were successful in securing a piece of steel for WHCSA. The Port Authority then contacted the WHCSA and said certain requirements had to be met prior to releasing the “steel.” The WHCSA had to sign a contract, provide insurance and information to the Port Authority prior to scheduling a pick up. With the help of the West Hempstead and Lakeview Fire Departments in providing some of the insurance requirements, the WHCSA was able to pick up the steel on March 28, 2012. At 8:40 AM on March 28, an escort motorcade, consisting of members of the Lakeview and West Hempstead Fire Departments, Auxiliary Police Unit 116 and members of the West

Students from the Cornwall Ave. School, the West Hempstead High School and Middle School all stood at attention to honor and show respect, many carrying American Flags. Students from the John Street School, St. Thomas the Apostle, as well as the Kindergarten students from HANC and Chestnut Street were standing outside their school with flags proudly held in their hand, saluting or holding their hand over their heart.

When the escort arrived at the Chestnut Street School, the steel from the Trade Center was lifted from the truck and witnessed by several hundred residents, some who had waited up to an hour, to be there for a brief ceremony and to witness a special piece of history. Monsignor Maniscalco, pastor of St. Thomas the Apostle Church, and Rabbi Vernon, Rabbi of the Jewish Community Center of West Hempstead were there to offer a prayer. The section of Steel was then brought into the Chestnut St. School building where it will remain until a suitable memorial is designed. Permission has already been received to place the Memorial, when completed, in Hall’s Pond Park.

Hempstead Community Support Association Executive Board left West Hempstead heading to JFK Airport's Hanger 17 to bring the World Trade Center piece of steel to West Hempstead. Upon reaching West Hempstead about 10:30 AM, they were greeted by fire trucks with volunteer firemen from surrounding communities. Using aerial ladders from their fire trucks, they formed arches with the ladders and suspended an American Flag between each arch. There were six of these arches at various locations in West Hempstead. The motorcade paused briefly at each location to be saluted by members of the volunteer fire departments. About 10 Fire Departments participated in this solemn tribute to those who perished on Sept. 11, 2001. The motorcade made its way through West Hempstead and Lakeview where thousands of residents and students lined the route. When the truck carrying the steel from the World Trade Center

WHCSA COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD RECIPIENTS Each year, the West Hempstead Community Support Association (WHCSA) usually award’s two high school seniors with a $500 award in recognition of their service to our community and their scholastic standing. The award committee, comprised of four members of the WHCSA Executive Board, was fortunate to receive so many worthy applications this year that it decided to recognize three students with this honor. This year’s award recipients are Joseph DiMarco, Emily Fennes, and Amanda Gabayan. Joseph DiMarco served as President of the West Hempstead High School’s Key Club where he coordinated the club’s food drive which eventually fed 44 local families. Some of the many things Joseph has also volunteered for have been various WHCSA’s events. For many years he has been on hand at the annual “Children’s Holiday Party” where he enjoyed entertaining the children while wearing an elf costume. He also plans to return each year for the children’s party, dressed as an elf, to help entertain the children and offer his assistance as needed throughout the event. In addition to helping the WHCSA, he also participated in the WH Chamber of Commerce’s “Clean Up West Hempstead Project.” Emily Fennes’ volunteering began in Kindergarten as a member of Girl Scout Troop 1845. When a chapter in TOP Soccer was formed in West Hempstead, Emily became a volunteer coach for the West Hempstead team. TOP Soccer is a program that provides kids with mental and physical disabilities, between the ages of 5-15, a chance to be on a soccer team. When she is not on the soccer field, Emily volunteers throughout the year at the Town of Hempstead’s Camp ANCHOR, which is a camp for children and adults with special needs. Amanda Gabayan has served as a student-athlete in the West Hempstead School District’s Athletes Helping Athletes Leadership program where Amanda speaks to young students about good-decision making. She has also actively volunteered on numerous projects for two churches. In addition, she has served at the Interfaith Nutrition Network where she helped organize and clean donated goods to give to the area’s homeless. West Hempstead Community Support Association is proud of these students and all of the other applicants who volunteered so much time to make West Hempstead a better place to live.

In our last issue of News & Views, we asked residents to Sponsor an American Flag for $30. Everyone appreciates the display of American Flags along Hempstead Avenue, but it is expensive and requires a continuous stream of money to replace flags and poles which have been damaged or lost due to weather conditions. Enough residents responded and we were able to purchase 45 flags and 26 poles to replace those which were lost or damaged due to weather conditions. Our sincere thank you to the following residents for their generosity and community spirit: $500: Irene & Manny Martinez $150: John Hinnawi $120: James Joyce $60: Barbara Keilty Michakski, Regina Mascia, the Nortons, Linda Ceraola $30: William & Karen Bowe, Rich & Karen Bonacorsa, John Lund, Ralph & Sherry Tavella, Theresa Holoham, Rev.

Bowe Please consider sponsoring an American Flag. The cost to sponsor is $30. The funds collected will be used exclusively to replace missing or damaged flags as needed. If you haven’t as yet sponsored a flag, please consider sponsoring one now so that we can have the funds to continue the tradition of having Hempstead Avenue become a sea of American Flags from Memorial Day until Labor Day.
