BVCA Adds Landscaping at Amityville High School

The weather was supposed to cooperate but the skies opened for a brief downpour.  The Bay Village Civic Association had purchased plants and sought volunteers to assist in placing them at the front of Amityville Memorial High School.  Members of the National Honor Society and Key Club had offered to come out on Saturday, May 5.  They joined members of the school district’s Plant and Grounds staff headed by Ed Mercurio.   BVCA President Joan Donnison, and co-chairs of its Enhancement Committee Jackie Aissa and Julie MacLean were ready to see their plan materialize.

Luckily, the rain ended and the project was implemented.   Roses and other perennials were planted alongside the main entrance.  The front courtyard area was weeded and raked.  New plants were added.

A new electronic sign had recently been installed near Merrick Road.  This was courtesy of the AMHS alumni from the class of 1960.  The BVCA purchased and planted red and white annuals (the school’s colors) in the bed surrounding the sign.  Perennials and more plants will be added in the future.

After several hours, the results were apparent.  Everyone was pleased….especially when the pizzas donated by “Bellissimo’s” arrived.  Thanks also go to Home Depot for their donation towards this project.

We sincerely appreciate the cooperation of principal Scott Andrews and V.P. Pete Hutchison as well as advisors Jodi Roisman and Christine Kilfoil.

As you walk or drive by, please take a closer look.  Hopefully, it will inspire the students while adding to the charm of the Village.

Spring Clean-Up Event April 30 Sponsored by the Bay Village Civic Association

On Saturday, April 30, a shredder truck was parked in the 9/11 Memorial Parking lot on Broadway.  From noon – 3 P.M., the public brought three bags or cardboard file boxes of paperwork to be shredded.  This was done for a $10 donation to the Bay Village Civic Association. 

This was a wonderful opportunity to clean out those personal documents residents had been saving.  Identity theft continues to be a problem and this was a deterrent. 
How fitting that Earth Day and Arbor Day were also celebrated in April.  We reduced landfill and saved a tree, while protecting your identity.
