Dads’ Club of NHP start the school year

The Island Now

The Dads’ Club of New Hyde Park Memorial High School will open the doors of their newly refurbished “SHACK” on the first day of school, Sept. 5 at 3 p.m.

The SHACK sells a variety of fresh, fine foods we call Gladiator Grub. The volunteer Dads from the club open the SHACK nearly every day after school at 3 p.m. and on Saturdays when there are home games on the schedule.

Saturday, Sept. 22 is the season home opener for the Gladiator Varsity Football team vs. Mepham at 2 p.m. Come enjoy a lunch at the SHACK while watching local athletes do battle on the field of glory.

On Saturday, Sept. 29, New Hyde Park Memorial will host their Homecoming festivities. The Dads’ Club will start the day by serving breakfast at the SHACK starting at 8 a.m. No better way to start the day before you go enjoy the Homecoming Parade. Then right after the parade grab lunch from the SHACK and enjoy the football game, NHP vs Manhasset.

Saturday, Oct. 13 2 p.m. at H. Frank Carey High School, the Dads’ Club of New Hyde Park Memorial will be competing against their cross town rivals the Dads’ Club of H. Frank Carey High School in the first ever District Chili Cook-Off. While the Gladiators and Seahawks are out on the gridiron the dad’s will be serving the best chili in the school district. For $5 customers will be able to taste each chili and judge the competition. Come by and support both schools.

During the month of October the Dads’ Club will be raising monies for Breast Cancer Research. For every order of French Fries purchased at the SHACK $1 will go toward the cause. Last year nearly $3000 was raised and donated. The Dads’ have their popular hot pink “TATERS FOR TATAS” tee shirts available for purchase for $15. Place orders early.
