Written by Denise Nash Friday, 18 September 2009 07:28The Syosset Chamber of Commerce held its sixth annual Street Fair on Sunday, under sunny skies in Syosset. There was a great turnout with so many residents coming out to enjoy the festivities, shopping and entertainment on Jackson Avenue.
The kids enjoyed bouncy rides, pony rides, face painting and a train that ran up and down the streets throughout the festival as their parents shopped and ate with their choice of cuisine with so many booths.
Residents had the chance to meet Senator Chuck Schumer who was in attendance to speak to residents about local issues. Residents surrounded him to ask questions about their local area as well as federal issues.
Nassau County Legislator Judy Jacobs, a founding member of the Syosset Chamber of Commerce, always enjoys the fair and festivities.
“The fair was phenomenal with so many vendors, exhibits and so much fun for the children,” said Jacobs. “I cannot believe that just over 10 years ago I decided to see if I could generate interest to re-start a Syosset Chamber of Commerce and now it is one of the most active, successful, largest groups in Nassau County. Believe it or not, there were 30 people at the first meeting I called and look at it now. It is very exciting. I always talk about it as one of my proudest achievements.”
Committee members Moira Patterson, Ruth Seidenberg, Craig DeMeo, Dominic Dantona, Roland Jimenez, Marilyn Urso, Danielle DelGrosso, Tricia Shannon, Sally Barish, Donna Greenspan, Josephine Costa, Steve Jonas, Holly Jonas and Scott M. Klein again outdid themselves this year with a successful street fair.
