Mayor’s Message – December 2022



December is upon us and signals the time we light up Wellwood Avenue for the holidays! 

The expanded “Winter on Wellwood” is a magical vision in our Downtown Business District, and our annual celebration to welcome the holiday season has grown into a festive, family-friendly, day of spectacular community fun.  This year will include ice sculpting, carolers in the park, and a variety of vendors in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce Santa In The Park, Business Improvement District Christmas Kindlmarket, Lindenhurst Fire Department Holiday Parade, Lindenhurst Historical Society Tree Lighting, and many other community organizations joining together in the holiday fun.  The Village sincerely appreciates all of the prep and planning that it takes for our Lindenhurst Community and guests to enjoy and share a memorable day. This day, in particular, is so complex and includes detailed planning that takes months, and an army of volunteers, to implement.  Special thanks to Deputy Mayor Maryann Weckerle, Trustee RJ Renna, Chamber of Commerce President Jo-Ann Boettcher, Business Improvement District President Jason Kontakis, Village Historian Anna Jaeger, LFD Chiefs Michael DeGregorio, David Collins, Robert Santos, Jonathan Cutolo, and all who do an amazing job in planning and organizing the event.

Walking our historic downtown during the holidays really makes you proud to be a resident in our beautiful Lindenhurst Community, and I continue to be so proud to serve as your Mayor. I wish all of our residents, businesses, and their families, a wonderful, holiday season.
