The Western Property Owners Association (WPOA) is once again participating in the Garden City High School scholarship program this spring. The Association will continue to award two scholarships of $500 each. While one will remain named as a WPOA scholarship, the second will continue to be awarded in memory of WPOA past presidents, John F. Traxler and Paul J. Muscarella.
Student candidates must:
Live in the Western Section of Garden City [this area is bordered on the north by the main line of the LIRR, on the east by the west side of Tanners Pond and Edgemere Roads, on the south by Cambridge Avenue and on the west by Jefferson Street]
A parent must be a dues paying member of the WPOA for three years, including the year the student is making the application.
Be actively involved in student life at Garden City High School, but not limited to academic accomplishment.
Demonstrate a willingness to participate in community service and be prepared to use the scholarship to further their education.
Garden City High School seniors who reside in the Western Section are encouraged to stop by the High School guidance office to inquire about and receive an application for the 2013 WPOA scholarships.

Although a bit unsure at first, all Foofa needs is a little bit of love and patience to bring out his true affectionate self. A favorite with the handlers, Foofa is proving an excellent student with his training, loves long walks on the trail, and enjoys his “pampering” sessions with petting and brushing.
Just like the Mario character, this little guy will keep you smiling all day long. Yoshi happily greets all people he meets, gets along well with his fellow canines, and loves long walks and petting sessions. Yoshi would make a wonderful addition in just about any home.

The FLG 2018 girls have established themselves as one of FLG’s premier teams of the summer. Garden City’s Julia Kavan and Anna Mandaro at the midfield and Megan Sprotte and Ann Sullivan defensively led their team to three championships this summer. The girls “really started to gel and play as a unit,” said Coach McGinty, successfully executing new plays, transitioning well and crashing on defense. With the improvements across the board, the team hasn’t lost a game since the first tournament of the summer. These girls were leaders on and off the field and are taking FLG Girls Lacrosse to the next level.
