Memorial Day In Floral Park

VFW Edwin J. Murphy Post No. 6910 held its annual Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 27 at the Floral Park Centre Memorial Park on McKee Street and Willis Avenue. On Nov. 10, 1946, Floral Park Centre citizens came together to honor eight servicemen from the community, unveiling a bronze memorial plaque. William Murphy, president of the Floral Park Centre Civic Association, gave the opening remarks 67 years ago.

 

“The ceremonies which we are now holding in recognition of the splendid services, often beyond the call of duty, made by these young men is deserving of the highest commendation.”

 

In 2013, Commander Richard Mooney opened the ceremony was joined by Vice Commanders Larry Sica Sr., Joseph Nigro Jr., Quartermasater Bill Baur, Adjutant Leonard Jindra, Officer of the Day Harold Marin and guest speaker Dr. Lawrence Jindra.

TV studio enhances web presence, wins awards

Lights. Camera. Action. These are the words you may hear if you are in Floral Park’s village hall. 

 

For almost two decades Floral Park has been home to Four Village Studio (4VS), a local community television station serving the four-village area.  

The community station airs a variety of programs hosted by residents, a community billboard and its own weather station. However, according to Operations Manager James Green, this is not the only goal of the studio.

Senator Jack Martins mentioned education, business and drug use among other topics in a recent interview with the Floral Park Dispatch. He’s currently seeking re-election in November, being challenged by Democrat Adam Haber. 

Pointing to what he called “key legislation,” particularly the tax cap legislation passed in 2011 and prescription drug bill he helped foster to enactment, Martins feels New York State is on track to continue fiscal responsibility.
