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.

Dog Park Pergola Donated by BVCA

The Board of the Bay Village Civic Association considered several donations to benefit Village residents.  The one they chose was a lattice topped pergola for the Village dog park.  It will afford some shade to those residents bringing their dogs there.

 

This issue came to light after Sandy, when a dog owner mentioned how hot it was at the dog park.  She had donated trees for the park.  However, they were destroyed during Sandy.  It is hoped that the pergola will weather storms better.

 

This is a gift from all the members of the Bay Village Civic Association.  It is through their continued membership and support, as well as fundraising, that the BVCA was able to afford this donation.  Enjoy!
