1. The Plainview-Hicksville Garden Club meets Tuesday at the Plainview Library. With the fall harvest approaching, there should be much to talk about.

2. Late Monday we wrote about a Wyandanch man who survived after he was struck by a freight train by the Hicksville station. Read it here.

3. Plainview Schools open a week from Wednesday for classes. You can see the school-year schedule here. The first week of school is a short one. Students have classes on Wednesday, then are off for Rosh Hashanah Thursday and Friday.

4. If your civic group or synagogue is planning a public event, there's no easier way to get the word out on our "Boards." Click here for the free exposure.
