SNOWFLAKES A REMINDER THAT
November 8, 2014 -- A sure sign that the holiday shopping season has arrived, members of the Glen Head-Glenwood Business Association gathered this past Saturday at the Glen Head Community Center to repair and replace bulbs on dozens of snowflakes that will be hung from lamp-posts throughout the Glen Head-Glenwood business district through the start of the new year. The group hopes to have the ornaments brightening darkened skies and spreading holiday cheer by Thanksgiving.
The seasonal repair work and lighting of the snowflakes has now been a tradition for more than 30 years. All funding for the displays is provided through donations, and work is done exclusively by volunteers.
Lending a hand on Saturday were Bill Manfredonia of A+ Graphics and Signs, Audrey and John Orozco of Uload-N-We-Go.com, Richard Greene, Marrily Glaviano of Gold Coast Library, Cathy Elorriaga of Northwordnews, Mickey Vergata of Glenwood Service Company, John Mulder - past Treasurer of the Business Association, Moe Yazdanfar of M&S Plan It, Howard Taub - Richard B Arnold Real Estate, Maryann E. Massari - Purple Table, Anne Gronan and Nancy Waage of The Glen Garden Club, Alby Gonzalez and Chris Vilchek of East Coast Waste Services, Steve Warshaw of Exit Realty, Angelo T. Stanco, and Tucker Tongue of Brookwood Contracting and President of the Business Association.
The Glen Head/Glenwood Business Association seeks to enhance the health and profitability of local business by helping to promote, develop, and protect the overall business interest of the area and its economic region. In addition, the group “strives to actively promote the civic interests, the general welfare and prosperity of the Greater Glen Head/Glenwood Area.” In the furtherance of these goals residents and local proprietors are encouraged to shop and eat local.
