It's Oct. 1 and that means the fall colors and Halloween will be here before you know. Here's a look at the week ahead in Plainview:
1. Good Shepherd Lutheran will hold its annual "Blessing of the Animals" on Thursday, Oct. 4 at 4:30 p.m. A free-will offering will be donated to benefit animals in need of homes. Last year, the church donated the proceeds to the TOB animal shelter.
3. While it will take place Sunday of next week, it's not to early to make plans to be the Plainview-Old Bethpage Chamber of Commerce craft and gift fair held in the Plainview Library parking lot. The event begins at 10 a.m. and includes family shopping, live entertainment, food, vendors and inflatable rides for the kids. Admission and parking is free.
4. The Plainview Hawks football team fell to 2-2 with a loss at Farmingdale Friday night. But the team fought bravely and is much improved. It takes on Syosset at home Friday at 6 p.m.
