Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez visited Copiague Middle School and joined the Ecology Club students at their “Adopt-A-Highway” kick-off campaign to help keep Babylon roadways clean and litter-free. The students, under the guidance of Ecology Club advisor Monica Csorny, enjoy participating in the Town of Babylon Beautification Program by volunteering in clean-up efforts throughout the year. The students not only have improved Tanner Park, but have also adopted Taylor Avenue, agreeing to keep the roadway by their school litter-free.
Deputy Supervisor Martinez was joined by Domyae Ivory-Byrd, a former Copiague Middle School student and Administrative Assistant for Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre, to thank the students for their admirable community service efforts. They were presented with Certificates of Appreciation for their efforts. Copiague Middle School Principal Andy Lagnado and Science Chair Daniel Leccese applauded the students for their outstanding work in the community.
The Town of Babylon Adopt-A-Highway initiative is designed to enhance the overall appearance of our town. The program invites concerned citizens, schools, local businesses, scouts and community organizations to work together to create cleaner roadways throughout our township.
