Street fair was a rousing success


To the Editor:

The Valley Stream Community Fest organizing committee would like to thank all the participants and guests who made the second annual Community Fest a success. We could not have done it without the support of Town of Hempstead Councilman James Darcy, the Village of Valley Stream Village Board, Department of Public Works, Public Safety, Auxiliary Police Unit 108 and all the volunteers we had leading up to, during and after the event.

Special thanks to the Baha’i Center and Sal and Vin’s Barber Shop for helping us the day of the event. We hope you all enjoyed celebrating our community, and we look forward to the third annual Fest, already less than a year away!

To the Editor:

Just wanted to send out a big thank-you to Dave Sabatino, owner of Sip This in Valley Stream, for organizing the 2013 Valley Stream Community Fest. As long-time business owners on Rockaway Avenue, it is great to see a new business owner put together such a successful venture for all the residents and merchants of Valley Stream. We all know how much hard work goes into organizing this type of event, and by all accounts it was a huge success.

We hope that this event becomes a Valley Stream tradition for years to come. Thanks again, Dave, for your hard work. It did not go unnoticed.

The Valley Stream Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the Valley Stream Community Fest committee for organizing last Saturday’s street fair on Rockaway Avenue.

It was a wonderful opportunity for many of our members and the businesses along Rockaway Avenue to meet the people of our community. Thank you to the mayor and Board of Trustees for their support, and to all the other community volunteers who helped to make the second Valley Stream Community Fest such a great event. We look forward to next year.
