Two Long Island childhood friends, Scott Reich and Michael Winik, recently left their respective careers in law and investment banking to pursue their dream of starting a business together, the online food market OurHarvest in Hicksville.
OurHarvest’s next scheduled pick-up is on Aug. 21 at Our Lady of Mercy Parish, 500 South Oyster Bay Road (last day for orders is Aug. 18). OurHarvest also has locations in New Hyde Park, Roslyn and Port Washington, with additional locations slated to open this year.
Thousands gathered in Hicksville this past weekend to celebrate India’s Independence Day with the India Day Parade.
A parade is held in the city each year to mark India’s Independence Day (which is Aug. 15) but this is the third year the parade has been held in Hicksville, much to the delight of Long Islanders such as Namita Vora.
“We’re so proud to be Indian and we’re glad this parade is in Hicksville so we don’t have to go into the city. I was born in India and though we are far from our home country, when the community gets together we feel like we’re still in India,” said Vora.
It’ll be your favorite nursery rhymes like you’ve never seen them before. On Aug. 20 Nappy’s Puppets brings an interactive shadow puppet show to the library, retelling popular nursery rhymes and songs.
The man behind the screen is Jim Napolitano, who has been doing shadow puppet shows for the past 15 years. The Connecticut resident does anywhere between 125 to 150 shows a year in the tri-state area.
“I love that every show is different. Each audience brings a different energy and helps me create a unique performance,” says Napolitano.
Hicksville residents Jim Black and Adam Mosebach from St. Paul’s Center Stage Theater performed Jesus Christ Superstar at St. Hyacinths Church in Glen Head this past weekend.
“We had the largest opening audience in our history and the cast was absolutely phenomenal,” said Black, the show’s producer. “The audience loved it.”
The rock opera was performed by St. Paul's Center Stage in 2000, and the show was so memorable that Black was excited to produce it again.
Drivers—get ready to slow down. Nassau County is currently in the process of installing school zone speed cameras in an effort to enhance safety by encouraging drivers to travel with caution, as well as support law enforcement efforts to crack down on violators and prevent accidents caused by speeding.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation authorizing the addition of speed cameras in school speed zones in Nassau and Suffolk counties on June 25. The law allows one speed camera per district to record speeding violations as they occur, without requiring a police officer to be present at the scene. The law enables speed cameras to be placed in up to 56 school speed zones in Nassau County.
The Hicksville Board of Education appointed Marianne Litzman acting superintendent last week, as they begin the interview process to find an interim.
Litzman has been in the district since 1985 and was a natural choice, as she was the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction.
The board has started interviews for an interim superintendent and is hoping to have one in the next month. They are working with the firm, School Leadership, to find a permanent replacement.
Hicksville improv sketch comedy group, Unrehearsed, will be performing this weekend at Crossroads Farm in Malverne.
The group, which consists of performers from Hicksville, will put on a fast-paced, interactive improv sketch show which will be made up completely on the spot. The only thing the actors know is which improv game they will be playing.
An Unrehearsed show follows a format similar to popular improv sketch comedy television shows, such as "Whose Line Is It Anyway," using games to create hilarious situations that are completely made up on the spot.
Superintendent Maureen Bright and the Hicksville School District are parting ways, a year earlier than originally planned.
At a Board of Education meeting May 20, Bright announced that she would not be renewing her contract when it expired at the end of the 2014-15 school year. However, a notice posted last week on the Hicksville School District website stated that she is leaving her position July 31, 2014.
“I’ve loved TV and was a movie buff since I was a little kid,” she said. “All I’ve ever wanted to do was make films. I was just upset at how things were made. When I got older, I took a lot of courses in TV and video production.”
Get out your needle and thread, glue gun, beads, and paint. Creative Cups, the popular, life-affirming fund raising event of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, is back. This is the fourth time that Creative Cups has happened on Long Island and allows artists, breast cancer survivors, their friends, family members and others to use originality and creativity to transform ordinary bras into works of art. Creative Cups celebrates the lives of those living with breast cancer and those we have lost to this terrible disease. All are invited to participate by creating an “art bra” or becoming a sponsor.
Fran Mulholland from Hicksville along with her friend Emilia Goncalves decorated a bra for last year’s Creative Cups. Their bra was themed “Celebrating Another Birthday.”
