APIA a Winner!

Stony Brook Village has a great safe Halloween celebration for children every year.  All October there are scarecrows decorating the village for the annual Scarecrow contest.  Visitors to the shops throughout the month can vote for their favorite scarecrow.

The Suffolk County Cluster of Au Pair in America has been entering the contest for several years.  This year, Community Counselor Cindy Garruba, accepted the 2nd prize for the cluster’s entry “Au Pair Annie and her Host Kids.”  The prize will be spent on a party for the au pairs in her cluster!

The contest is run by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization and they provide wonderful events throughout the year for the community.  Soon APIA will be decorating a Holiday Tree in the Promenade of Trees.  The trees will be on view throughout December!
