By Thomas Nothel
The Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club in Locust Valley had a special visit from two of its state legislators last Saturday.
NYS Senator Jack Martins (R-Old Westbury) and NYS Assemblyman Jake Blumencranz (R-Oyster Bay) each participated in the ceremonial coin toss prior to the day’s basketball games.
Eric Brook, President of the Board of Directors and Honorable Colin O’Donnell, Board of Directors were onsite to introduce the guests to players and spectators.
“It is reassuring to know that the Club has a solid relationship with our partners in government,” said Brook.
The two Legislators enjoyed interacting with the young players, touring the facility, and engaging in meaningful conversation with staff, volunteer coaches and parents.
Both Martins and Blumenkranz are sponsors of the GBB&G Club’s popular basketball program, which enrolls 249 kids grades 3-8 and 75 K-2 for the instructional program.
