Please come down to the Smithtown Animal Shelter and fall in love with Sweet Stella girl! Stella is a 7 year old spayed female staff terrier mix. Stella has been waiting for her furever home for over a year now. Stella would make a great walking companion and she is like a furry exercise machine. She loves to roll on her back for belly rubs and give kisses. Stella would do best in an adult only home with no other pets. Open up your heart and adopt this furbaby and give her the loving home she deserves!

Mary Galvez Celebrates 100th Birthday


Mary GalvezMary Galvez remembers going through Ellis Island in 1923.  That’s where they changed her birthday from March 17th to March 26th.  She was on her way from Ascoli Satriano, Italy with her mother, two brothers and sister to a new life in Brooklyn with her father who had arrived earlier.  The family moved to Greenpoint, where Mary worked as a volunteer for 25 years at the Senior Center – and where she met her future husband, Conrad.  The couple moved to Forest Hills where they lived for 79 years before she came to St. Johnland in 2006.  Mary celebrated her 100th birthday long in advance of the actual day surrounded by an overflow reunion of nieces, nephews and extended family.  She keeps busy playing Bingo and word games and working on craft projects.


Happy Birthday and Congratulations, Mary!
