The Plainview Water District Board of Commissioners announce that the District is celebrating National Drinking Water Week, a nationwide commemoration designed to celebrate the vital role the Earth’s most precious natural resource from May 5 to May 11.
The Plainview Water District will mark the week-long occasion by participating in the Long Island Water Conference’s 28th Annual Best Tasting Water Competition. hThe District is looking to defend its title as the region’s best-tasting water as the District’s water supply was the recipient of the 2012 Best-Tasting Water Award and was a semi-finalist of New York State’s Best-Tasting Water Contest in Syracuse, NY. The competition will be held in the First Stop Café at Farmingdale State College. The Nassau and Suffolk County winners will face-off on a yet to be determined day and time.

Members and guests of North Shore Synagogue’s Brotherhood BBQ and Erev Shabbat Service enjoyed a wonderful summer’s evening in early July with a classic BBQ and services led by Brotherhood, with help from Rabbi Jaimee Shalhevet and Cantor Rich Pilatsky.
“This is a wonderful way to connect with other members of Brotherhood, which focuses on building camaraderie among our members, and instilling a strong sense of community away from the hectic pressures of our day-to-day lives,” said Brotherhood co-president Jeffrey Levine.

Susan Sears of Port Jefferson runs an ongoing series of science classes aimed at stimulating the growing minds of children. Recently, she was holding one of them at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library on Roller Coaster design, which she described as “a physics lesson disguised as fun.”
