Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer recently joined with Town Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez, Town Councilman Tom Donnelly, New York State Senator Phil Boyle, and New York State Assemblyman Andrew Raia at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to dedicate the enhanced “North Babylon Welcomes You” beautification site at the corner of Hubbards Path and Belmont Avenue. The Town of Babylon Beautification Program has partnered with the North Babylon Chamber of Commerce in an effort to help keep its communities safe, clean, and beautiful. In addition to its hard work in cleaning up this site, the Chamber has also assisted with food pantries, street fairs, and other beautification sites around the hamlet of North Babylon. Joining the local officials and the Chamber of Commerce in celebrating the cleanup site were members of the North Babylon Lions Club, St. Paul’s Church, the Belmont Lake Civic Association, and Boy Scout Troop 399.
Supervisor Schaffer presented the North Babylon Chamber of Commerce with an official Certificate of Appreciation to thank everyone who assisted with the beautification initiative.
