FMC Folio Awards

The Fair Media Council works to advance quality journalism and to help people like us better recognize and appreciate it, as well as to better understand the media landscape as a whole.

We’re honored to call them a friend and a sponsor, and to have served this year as jurors for their 2021 Folio Awards, which recognizes quality news on the hyperlocal Long Island, New York City regional and National levels.

It’s an informative, inclusive process (Kate did it with her kids!) that helps create discerning news consumers while providing important feedback to news creators. It really did just that! Join us in honoring the winners!

A Park for Joy!!!

Here’s the story we wrote about Joy Squires, Huntington’s Environmental Sage in 2016. She’s been chair of the Huntington Conservation Board since 1979, and also long-led the NYS Conservation Commission, where she continually endeavors to help others better steward their own open spaces and to encourage new generations to be actively engaged in environmentalism.

If you know her, you have probably been informed about parks in your area and opportunities to serve as their steward. We are delighted to hear that Manor Plains Park will now be renamed in honor of her!

When: Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 12:30pm

Where: Manor Plains Nature Park, 91-93 Manor Road, Huntington
