Marine Park Residents:
The Marine Park Civic Association was founded in 1926 to promote the
mutual and general welfare of the community by securing the united action of all
residents and merchants with matters pertaining to civic improvement.
We are a non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-profit organization.
We conduct ten monthly membership meetings per year (July and August
excluded) at our “home” in the Carmine Carro Community Center, offering
refreshments and door prizes.
Two of these meetings are party style with food and entertainment where
you can get to know your fellow members.
These meetings are usually attended by various elected and government
agency officials who address issues of concern and try to answer any questions
you may have.
With your membership, you will receive ten monthly newsletters (either
via email for a faster, enviro-friendly delivery or a hardcopy – you can
decide below) to keep you informed of events in our neighborhood.
Additionally, you can reach us on our hot-line or website with any issues
or concerns you may have.
While we sponsor many events throughout the year, we are best known for
our legendary Fall Festival, the Thanksgiving “Great Turkey Givaway” and
Santa in the Park.

low as possible through the years.
The cost of printing and mailing the newsletter, coffee and cake at our
meetings, holiday and end of year party, sponsorship of our annual events and
working in partnership with other organizations requires funding.
Although we have been fortunate to obtain grants from our elected
officials, at times the grants do not cover all the expenses.
If you are not yet a member, we urge you to return the attached
membership form along with your check.
Of course, any additional donations are greatly appreciated.
To those of you who are already members and plan to renew your
membership, we sincerely thank you for your continued support.
We ask everyone to help get the word out to your neighbors and try to bring
in a new member.
Remember… there is strength in numbers.
do it without you!
