The 2012 Blue Ribbon 5K Run For Prostate Cancer, which had been scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 18, has been postponed until Sunday, Dec. 9, and has been moved to a new location, Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, 7800 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury.
It is never an easy task to have to postpone an event, not to mention having to move it to a different location. However, the devastation from Superstorm Sandy required it. The Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course is not yet safe for an event to take place there due to the storm. Fortunately, with the enthusiastic cooperation of Town Supervisor Venditto and the Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department, the event has been rescheduled and relocated to the scenic grounds of Syosset-Woodbury Community Park, which is just a mile from the original location.
If you have already registered for the run, there is nothing else for you to do but to show up at the Community Park sufficiently in advance of the 9:30 a.m. starting time. If you’re not yet registered, you can sign up at www.imfcares.org/fall-blue-ribbon-run. You can also follow the links on that page to download the race application or to set up your own fundraising page.

With the fall sports season upon us, the department of recreation and parks would like to remind all residents that pets are not allowed in any neighborhood parks, Community Park, or St. Paul’s fields. Non compliance with this rule will result in the issuance of appearance tickets.

Garden City’s Department of Recreation and Parks will offer the option of online registration with credit card payment beginning with its winter programs in early December.
In order for a family to use the online registration option, the family will first need to visit the recreation and parks office at 108 Rockaway Ave. to verify residency and their family information and receive their password. A list of instructions as to how to use the website will be included.
