A tree has been planted in Lindenhurst Village Square Park to honor the memory of long-time Village resident, Evelyn Chivvis. Mrs. Chivvis was a charter member of the Mayor’s Beautification Society, and served as its Chairperson for many years. As Chairperson, Evelyn oversaw many fundraising activities, as well as the planting of colorful flowers and shrubs, painting planters and benches, and added her special touch to many beautification projects throughout the Village. In addition to the Mayor’s Beautification Society, Evelyn also served as the Secretary to the Village Board during Mayor Lynda Distler’s term of office.
Deputy Mayor Maryann Weckerle said, “We could not think of a better place than Village Square Park, in the heart of our Downtown Business District, to create a lasting tribute to this wonder woman — Evelyn Chivvis.”
Mayor Michael Lavorata added, “The Village of Lindenhurst is grateful for her years of service, and the legacy of accomplishments.”
