Summit Council Thanks Belesi for Sign Help

Group discusses fair, trike-a-thon success.

The Farmingdale Community Summit Council thanked Nassau Legislator Joe Belesi Thursday for his help in getting a sign posted about the organization.

Council president Ken Ulric said at the group's meeting at Farmingdale Public Library that the sign was the brainchild of the late Dr. Philip J. Acinapuro, who died in 2011.

Because the sign was going on state land, Belesi intervened to smooth the way for its placement.

The sign went up last month on Hempstead Turnpike, east of Route 135. A copy of the sign was given to Acinapuro's widow, Ellen, at the meeting.

Also discussed were plans for the Friends of the arts and crafts festival, which library director Deborah Podolski said was scheduled for May 5.

Ellen Krammer, the group's vice president, said youngsters had raised $1,240 in a trike-a-thon. "It was their first service opportunity," Krammer said. The four-year-olds were awarded certificates for their efforts. Several participants suggested a trike-a-thon for adults, though at least one person joked about insurance issues.

The council, an umbrella group of community organizations, meets monthly. It will hold elections in June.
