New Hyde Park’s slogan is “A great place to live.” That was evidenced at the annual street fair, which was recently held. It is heartwarming to see so many members of the community turn out to support local merchants and enjoy each other’s company on a beautiful autumn day.
It was especially nice to see the pride and appreciation that was shown for the Little League girls softball team, which was honored at village hall. The community should be proud of their accomplishments, as well as for the outstanding way in which they represented New Hyde Park, New York, and the northeast region. They demonstrated teamwork, dedication, commitment, and, above all, respect for each other, their coaches and their competitors. Residents should also be proud of the support, which the community has shown the girls, their coaches, and their parents. The donation by the New Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce to help defray some of the costs from traveling to Portland, Oregon was a very nice gesture. Well done, New Hyde Park.
