From the Town of Babylon Beautification Program:
Town of Babylon elected officials joined the Amity Harbor Civic Association as the new “Welcome to Amity Harbor” sign was dedicated with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, November 17th at the corner of Wilson Avenue and Montauk Highway. Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Councilwoman and Beautification Program Chair Jackie Gordon commended the civic, which was established in 1937 and is the oldest continuously active civic association in New York State. Through the town Beautification Program, the beautification site was designed and landscaped 20 years ago with funding from then Legislator Maxine Postal, and is one of 50 beautification areas located throughout the town. The new “Welcome to Amity Harbor” sign adorns the beautifully maintained site by JMI Iaboni through the town’s Adopt-A-Spot Program and is a welcomed entrance to Tanner Park.
Supervisor Schaffer was joined by Councilwoman Gordon, Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory, Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre and Town Clerk Gerry Compitello to present Amity Harbor Civic President Steve Beck and the Amity Harbor Civic Association with a proclamation recognizing their history, importance and service to the community. The ceremony was opened with the Pledge of Allegiance led by Town of Babylon Junior Beautification Ambassadors Madison Aquafredda and Sean Moore.
The Amity Harbor Civic hosts an Annual Italian Night, a Bingo Night, and a Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony and supports our deployed Troops by sending packages overseas - 106 to date! Currently, the Amity Harbor Civic Association is sending packages to a Marine Osprey Squadron in Southeast Asia and an Army Unit in Kuwait. The Town of Babylon and its residents applaud the Amity Harbor Civic and its membership for supporting our troops, unifying and serving the community through their many social activities and for keeping our public spaces clean and beautiful.
