Monday, I start this month’s Town Focus series in Farmingdale, a village whose history dates back to 1687.

I’m beginning my week at the Farmingdale Public Library, where I will meet Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce President Debbie Podolski.

After that, I’ll be at the Farmingdale Adult Day Care Center, where I will meet its director, Brandi Fromm. The center, located at the United Methodist Church, provides a program for people 60 and over.

Later in the week, I’ll meet with representatives from the Farmingdale-Bethpage Historical Society, the school district and other groups that help define the community.

You can find me working from and roaming about town. Feel free to say hello or pass on a suggestion for someone to meet or something to cover in Farmingdale.

You can reach me on Twitter, send me an email, or comment on this post.
