BVCA Awards 4 Scholarships to AMHS Seniors

On Thursday, June 2, Amityville Memorial High School held a Senior Awards Ceremony. Many students were recognized with a variety of scholarships and awards. It was an exciting moment for all to witness.

The Bay Village Civic Association was pleased to once again grant scholarships to students with outstanding records of community service as well as academic achievement. However, this year, the choice was particularly difficult for a very good reason. There were many applicants who were well qualified.

The recipients were Andrew Abate, Kenneth Dinnoo, Vanessa Ottey and Jaime Ruiz-Marcelo. Congratulations are extended to all winners, and their families. Their achievements and values bode well for their future, and that of our community.

Pictured here are the BVCA scholarship winners, as named above. Most are with BVCA President, Joan Donnison, at the Awards Ceremony. Good luck to all.

 

 

 

H.S. Students Work with BVCA to Beautify Amityville

On a recent Saturday morning in May, about twenty students from Amityville Memorial H.S. volunteered to work with members of the Bay Village Civic Association.  They had a two-fold mission: to clean up the Woods Preserve on Ketcham Creek, as well as improve the landscaping appearance on the H.S. grounds. 

With the assistance of school advisor Cara Garofalo, and the support of Assemblywoman Jean-Pierre, Stop & Shop, and Raimo’s Pizza, the BVCA conducted a successful event. 

The students and volunteers worked diligently to remove plastic bags and debris from the wetlands, while not disturbing it.  At least four bags of trash were collected.

Afterwards, everyone returned to the school to weed and prune garden beds at the main entrance. Many plants had been purchased by the civic association.  Laboring together, the students and BVCA volunteers added the new plants to those beds.  Plants were added around the electronic sign facing Merrick Rd., as well as the one at the sign in the western parking lot, too.

Tired and hungry, but pleased with the results, students and civic association volunteers enjoyed Raimo’s pizza and refreshments in the High School lunchroom.  Community Service hours were awarded to the students, as well.

This has become an annual event to help beautify the Village of Amityville.  The Bay Village Civic Association has donated and created several garden beds in the Village including the large rectangular bed at the entrance to the Library.

Preserve Clean-up on May 21st

Preserve Clean-up

The Bay Village Civic Association Enhancement Committee has planned another Clean-up at the Woods Preserve on the north side of Merrick Rd. at Ketcham Creek.  It is scheduled for Saturday, May 21 with the help of AMHS students and community volunteers.

We will meet on the east side of the High School, near the portables, at 9:45 A.M. and proceed to the Preserve by 10 A.M.  Suffolk County National Bank will allow us to park on the north side of its parking lot.

Afterwards, we will return to the High School to do some gardening.  Plants will be trimmed, beds cleaned, and new, BVCA donated plants will be added, as needed.

Volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately and bring labeled gardening tools and gloves.  Water and packets of bug repellent will be available.  There is no raindate.  However, if the weather is terrible, we will notify members and post a cancellation on our Facebook page and web site.  In the past, the weather gods have smiled on us!

Afterwards, pizza and refreshments will be offered in the High School by the BVCA and a local business.  Students will receive Community Service hours.  Volunteers are welcome!

9th Annual BVCA Brunch Honored Amityville Commission

The Amityville Park Commission has been in existence under varying forms and names since the 1930’s.  Its mission was always to beautify the Village of Amityville through gardens and other attractive displays.

 

This has also been part of the mission of the Bay Village Civic Association.  For nearly ten years, it has been actively beautifying and enhancing public spaces, often consulting and collaborating with Corinne Budde, chairperson of the Park Commission.  Most recently, recognizing a need for shade at the Dog Park and discussing it with Mrs. Budde, a pergola was donated for that park by the BVCA.

 

At this year’s annual Brunch/Raffle at the Unqua Corinthian Yacht Club, Corinne and the members of the Park Commission were recognized.  Joining BVCA president Joan Donnison were many members of the community.  In her speech, Joan noted that the Commission members are master gardeners and/or horticulturalists.  They volunteer their expertise and efforts in all kinds of conditions, frequently with cars whizzing by!

 

Elected officials also acknowledged the Commission’s contributions.  Words of praise were offered by N.Y. State Senator Michael Venditto, N.Y. State Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre, Town of Babylon Councilman Tony Martinez, Village of Amityville Trustee Dennis Siry, and former Deputy Mayor Peter Casserly.

 

If you have admired the Village entranceways, the planter boxes in the summer, and the gardens at the beach, The Triangle and Gazebo, you have witnessed the results of their work.  The accolades are well deserved.

 

In spite of having to postpone this event one week due to the blizzard, the Brunch was well attended.  By all accounts, the raffle was a success.  There were wonderful and valuable gifts donated by many individuals and businesses.  All the recipients were delighted!

 

The Bay Village Civic Association represents the residents of the Village of Amityville.  More information can be found at www.bayvillagecivic.org or on their Facebook page.
