This year payments received after Monday, Dec. 31, are subject to penalty. Please return the “second half” bill stub with your payment made payable to the Incorporated Village of Garden City.

Former beautification

committee chair seeks return

Stewart Manor residents had beautification on the brain at the village’s most recent board of trustees meeting. Several attendees participated in a friendly airing of grievances to the board about the amount of litter being left in front of some of the shops along Covert Ave and in the parking lots.

Former Village Beautification Committee Chairman Julian Sottovia says that enough is enough, and further steps need to be taken.

Resurrection Church raises money

with Xmas-themed event

On Saturday, July 26, all roads lead to Lutheran Church of the Resurrection and the magical merry world of trains at the 4th Annual Christmas In July Fundraiser. Festooned with glittering lights, the gym will be transformed into a winter wonderland of delight as you enter a snow-flurry world of inflatable Santas, reindeer, snowmen and mysterious nutcrackers—replete with holiday songs and music.

Rediscover the joy of childhood with a dazzling display of classic model trains from Resurrection’s own collectors and hobbyists: Jay Campson, Doug Hoffmann, Doug Kurz, Joe Mecchella, John and Jim Mesloh, Ken Meyn, and Gerhardt Muller.

The Best Secret In Town!

Did you know that each of our neighbor hood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering 1st through 8th grades who are residents of the Village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.

Each park has its own “flavor” and “favorite” activities. The park directors and their staff run games, sports, tournaments, and arts and crafts activities during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
