Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer recently joined with Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez, Councilman Tom Donnelly and Councilwoman Jackie Gordon to present the North Babylon Parkdale Civic Association with an honorary citation for their contribution to the community by adopting the Kime Avenue Traffic Roundabout. The Parkdale Civic Association adopted the roundabout to help improve the traffic around Kime and Greenwood Drive as well as to beautify the area.
The spot was adopted by Andrew and Elinor Spadafora, who volunteer for the civic association. The Spadaforas donated plant material, planted colorful flowers and installed both security cameras and solar lighting at the site. Over 600 tulip and daffodil bulbs were donated by Stables garden center in North Babylon to help spruce up the garden. This project is a fulfillment of one of the civic association's goals: to improve the community through beautification.
If you are interested in taking part in the Parkdale Civic Association, meetings are held every first monday of the month at 7:30 PM at Parkdale Elementary School.
