[ARCHIVED] North Babylon Students Cleanup Phelps Lane Park


Babylon Town Councilman Tom Donnelly recently met with a group of students from North Babylon High School who made a difference in their community by cleaning up Phelps Lane Park in North Babylon as part of a Global Youth Service Day project. Councilman Donnelly thanked the students for their participation and dedication to keeping our parks clean and beautiful. The students were treated to a history lesson about the Phelps Lane family and the mansion by Kelly Filippone, Town of Babylon Archives Assistant. Marie Bragman, Program Manager and Vocation Instructor for Abilities, Inc. and Brooke Harris, Job Coach, are pictured with Councilman Tom Donnelly and Kelly Filippone on the front lawn of the Phelps Lane mansion, home of the Town of Babylon Department of Parks & Recreation.
