Flowers for Jericho Turnpike

 Flower Baskets for Jericho Turnpike 

Michael Jakob and Ron Keats, visited with the Superintendent of Buildings Steve Siwinski and Village Trustee Jim Rhatigan at the building department just after the shipment of flower baskets were delivered.

The baskets are now lining Jericho Turnpike and Tulip Ave and are sponsored by the Floral Park Chamber of Commerce. 

The flowers, along with our banners, will make the main thoroughfare through Floral Park much more inviting than it has been in the past. 

We are thrilled to be making a difference in the beautification of our village.
