fred_ariemmaPlease join us in congratulating Fred Ariemma for receiving the Above and Beyond Award for November. This monthly award is a great way for us to recognize and thank staff, students, volunteers, and the community who go above and beyond for the agency, helping to promote and raise needed funds for the program’s growth.

Fred Ariemma has been such an invaluable member  to Eden II Programs, along with many other organizations throughout Staten Island. Owner of Ariemma’s Garden Center, located in Staten Island, Fred has spent countless hours and dollars making the community a brighter place. Fred has been providing Eden II Programs with fresh flowers and seasonal displays for many years.  In addition to these displays, Fred also dedicates his time and efforts to setting up the magnificent centerpieces for our Annual Dinner Dance every year. Mr. Ariemma also helps to maintain the Postcards Memorial, which honors Staten Island residents who lost their lives on 9/11.

All of Eden II’s staff and students would like to thank Fred for his commitment to beautifying our grounds and bringing joy to our programs.

As a recipient of the Above and Beyond Award, Fred will be recognized on a permanent plaque on both Staten Island and Long Island.
