There are probably many of you out there asking yourself, why exactly are we a Village and what do these “Village people” do? Well, I am glad that you asked that question. My first column is as good as any other place to introduce your elected officials in the Village of Lindenhurst so that you may be able to come to us with your specific issues!
Contrary to what you might be used to reading about those gosh-darn “politicians,” not all of us are bad. As a matter of fact, on the Village, Babylon Town, Suffolk County and New York State (NYS) levels, we have a very good group of individuals locally, who really do the right thing. But for this initial piece, we will focus on my favorite level of government: Lindenhurst Village. [Read more…]

The Mayor’s Beautification Society (MBS) recently completed its annual holiday decorating in the Village of Lindenhurst. Each year, the Mayor’s Beautification Society of Lindenhurst fills the planters that line Wellwood Avenue with festive greens, white branches and red ribbons.
This year, the Mayor’s Beautification Society introduced a new decorating event; “Decorate a Lamplight.” Members of the MBS and their families decorated 15 additional lamp posts in the Village with holiday garland and red bows. After the decorating was done, the volunteers met back at the Lindenhurst Village Gazebo for hot chocolate and cookies.
The photos show Suffolk County Legislator Kevin J. McCaffrey hanging the garland on his family’s lamplight on South Wellwood Avenue, with a little help from MBS Member Gloria Sheahan. On North Wellwood Avenue, MBS Members Angela Rosati and Jennifer Griffin, along with Jennifer’s children Robbie and Kelly, decorated the Rosati family’s lamp post.
As you are all well aware, on October 29 and 30, 2012, our residents were hit by a superstorm which delivered the most devastation we have ever witnessed. Hurricane Sandy ravaged our Village and our surrounding communities. But in the aftermath of the sorrow, disruption, loss of property and the robbing of almost everything that residents affected have ever had, I don’t think that I can put into words how proud I am of the residents of this Village, the many benefactors that we have been touched by, and the help and love that has been poured onto all of us.
Volunteers from all over have assisted in the clean-up and recovery effort, as well as provided much-needed supplies to those hit the hardest. It is true that when the chips are down, people prove that they are willing to sacrifice to help others in need. Even some of the people who themselves were suffering were comforting others in worse shape than they were in. It was truly magnificent, and again, as mayor of this great Village, I cannot express my gratitude in words for what you all have provided. [Read more…]
