Qualify For Junior Olympics

Plainview residents Giulianna Silva, Zoe Katevatis, and Nicholas Illuzzi qualified to compete at the 2013 Metropolitan Swimming Junior Olympics. These swimmers will compete representing the nationally ranked host team, Long Island Aquatic Club (LIAC). Each year LIAC sends a large squad to the Junior Olympics to compete for the titles as the best age group swimmers in the Metropolitan LSC.

Success at the junior level is what motivates many of these young athletes to set Olympic sized goals. Since 1996 LIAC, has qualified 21 swimmers for the US Olympic Trials. In 2016 or 2020 one of these Plainview swimming heroes could be competing for their shot at the Olympic team. Come down to cheer them on now!  

The Junior Olympics are going on now, March 15 – 17 at the Nassau County Aquatic Center in Eisenhower Park.

The Columbus Day Parade played host a to a very special group this year. The Family Residences and Essential Enterprises’ (FREE) Players Drum Corps made history as they became the first special needs drum corps to march in the New York City Columbus Day Parade.

The group marched up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 72nd Street with a red carpet performance on Fifth Avenue between 67th and 69th Streets.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.

Massapequa resident and event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event.
