BLCA is proud to welcome back Suffolk County Sheriff Errol Toulon Jr. as this month's guest speaker. As always the meeting was informative, impactful, and meaningful.
Our Sheriff is doing a phenomenal job on behalf of Suffolk County residents. According to the public lands trust one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against crime is the beautification of community green spaces, parks, and gardens. We have partnered with the SCSO to maintain our community bird sanctuary on Hilltop Avenue and Lakeway Drive in West Babylon.
We enjoyed the monthly safety reports from the Suffolk County Police Department 1st Precinct Cope Officers, Town of Babylon Investigators, and the North Babylon Fire Company.
From our community to yours Happy Thanksgiving! Let's pause to appreciate life's blessings.

Unity In The Community Coalition hosts 2023 Meet The Candidates
This forum demonstrated the value of common community interest. Thank you to the 100-plus attendees from across Babylon Township for your participation in our annual Meet the Candidates.
Topics discussed included affordability, immigration, pay equity, environmental protection, economic development, and safety at large. Collective empowerment is the key to our success. We have a choice to advocate alone as a finger or advocate together as a fist. A fist is much stronger than a finger.
Thank you to our neighboring partners the Concerned Taxpayers of Wheatley Heights/Dix Hills Civic Association, Inc., the Concerned Citizens of Wyandanch Civic Association, Inc., the Concerned Fathers Association of Wheatley Heights, Inc., the Mother’s Club of Wheatley Heights Inc., the Concerned Citizens of Deer Park, and the Deer Park Community Association for fostering unity in the community. Blessings
