Rotary Club and Eagle Scout install bronze statue at local fire department

While parades and barbecues were once again a normal occurrence this Memorial Day, Williston Park residents were treated to a little something extra. At 11 a.m. at the Williston Park Fire House, the Rotary Club of Williston Park installed the sculpture “Every Day a Hero” as a monument donated and dedicated to all of America’s heroes who risked their lives during the September 11th attacks.

The sculpture, which now proudly stands in front of the firehouse, depicts a life-sized firefighter engaged in his work. The sculpture was customized specifically to the firefighters of New York by placing their unique insignia on the helmet, thus making the sculpture one of a kind to New York firefighters.

Annie to run for two more weeks on Herricks stage

It is really hard to dispute the fact that John Hayes is the best director of community theater on Long Island. For the past 40 years he has been a director and for the past 37 years for the Herricks Commuity Players.

This production of Annie reflects the multi-talent of Hayes, as he is able to navigate this entire cast on and off the stage to their assigned positions as if they were one. He is a true genius and that is exactly why every one of his shows is an undisputed hit.
