When we purchased our house, we had no idea that would join a community at the same time. In November, we dedicated a legacy walk to those neighbors that have contributed to the betterment of our community. A Floral Park Walk of Fame right in the heart of our community garden. Some are still with us, others are gone, both have transformed our neighborhood into a tight knit community. We honored the original founders, those that continue to contribute, and have left room for the future contributors. So here’s a little cheers to the past, the present, and the future!
