Working under a special permit from the village, food establishments on Seventh Street, New Hyde Park Road and Franklin Avenue have placed tables and chairs outside their shops and restaurants for your convenience and enjoyment. Please stop by to let the merchants know that you appreciate their efforts and enjoy the many fine tastes of Garden City. As of today, there are 30 establishments that are participating in the Outdoor Dining Program.
Once again, compliments are due to the Recreation Department for arranging the 2009 season’s outstanding Concert Series at the Village Gazebo, located on the Village Green at the corner of Stewart and Hilton Avenues. I have received rave reviews of last week’s concert.
This week’s program is scheduled for Thursday, July 9, and will feature The Chiclettes. The program will begin at 7:15 and admission is free. Please bring your lawn chair or blanket and enjoy a very pleasant evening. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held at the Cultural and Performing Arts Center at Cluett Hall at St. Paul’s School. Please contact the Recreation Department at 465-4075 with any questions pertaining to the concert.
The next board of trustees meetings will be held on Thursday, July 16 and Thursday, Aug. 13. The meetings will be held in the Board Room at Village Hall and will begin at 8 p.m.
I encourage residents to periodically utilize the village’s website for information regarding the village’s operations, as well as items of seasonal and special interest. The address is www.gardencityny.net. One item that is listed on the village’s website home page is a listing of restaurants within the village.
