President’s Message

This winter is going by so fast and thankfully we have not had to contend with any long lasting snowstorms. The last snowstorm in February when the schools were closed out of caution for the children’s safety enabled our Sanitation Dept. to get our highways and streets cleared in a timely manner. Last month we had an excellent presentation from Con Edison explaining the work they are doing in our community – the upgrades to existing overhead lines and transformers as well as putting in some underground wires where they could get access to.

Capt. Burke from the 63rd Precinct informed us that an individual had been arrested with regard to the hit and run accident near Kings Plaza last year which killed a member of our community and seriously injured his wife. Capt. Burke updated us with regard to recent credit/debit card thefts. His advice was to pick up a new bank card at that bank and not have it sent in the mail.

As I mentioned at last months’ meeting, our nominating committee is starting to prepare the new slate of Officers and Directors to present to you at our April membership meeting. If you would like to volunteer, you must contact us by March 31st. We request that you submit a resume or bio of yourself. You may forward your resume to our PO Box; see a Board member at this month’s meeting; email us or call our hotline with any questions you might have. We schedule a few events each year and welcome anyone who might be able to assist on a special committee such as the Fall Festival. If you know of a teenager who is required to give community service, we could always use their help.

We have had an excellent response to our membership renewal mailing. Thank you to those of you who continue to be a member and please encourage a neighbor to join. Your dues help us to continue to offer programs and events to the community. Remember we have a hotline where you can contact us with any concerns you might have and you can always join us at our monthly meeting the third Tuesday of every month (except for July and August).

I hope you can join us at this month’s meeting – entertainment will be provided by the O’Malley Dance Academy Irish Step Dancers. It will be enjoyable evening. Hope you all have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day!
