Message from the President
Greetings Members and Neighbors,
Giving honor to God, my mother and father Theodore and Hortense Leary and my family, I write this letter as your civic President. A special thank you goes out to Immediate Past President John H. Simpkins Jr., the Executive Board and General members for their support with my presidency.
First and foremost, our Polling Place for Election Districts 14, 56 and 147 is Robert Moses Middle School. Our communication with the Board of Elections has allowed this change to occur. We as property and school tax paying citizens of North Babylon, vote in North Babylon for all Primary and November elections. Your school location for our annual school budget votes remains the same. Each election, be on the lookout for Early Voting information.
As your civic President, my goals are to maintain the improvements and projects the Civic has worked hard for since 1959. As you glance at our Committees page you will view our on going work. We focus on safety and beautification of our neighborhood, improvement and maintenance of decent streets and continued positive relationships with our Police Department and all of its units. We will continue working with our fellow Town of Babylon civic organizations on these matters as well as on voting and open communication with our elected officials. The Belmont Lake Civic Association is a bi-partisan organization that believes in holding all of our elected officials accountable.
We always look forward to witnessing the improvements of our North Babylon school buildings and grounds with the passing of the Bond funding. Modernized facilities will enhance academic achievement and add to the school spirit within all of us. Keep open communication with your child's teachers. North Babylon Strong!
I hope you all enjoy the best of summer activities that The Town of Babylon and Long Island has to offer. Newsday, Newsday.com and the Patch all have lists of places, activities and events for fall family fun! We pray that all families work to stay safe during this time of Covid 19 Pandemic Recovery. We encourage you to support local businesses. Social distancing can still be practiced while you are enjoying your summer.
As you branch out of Babylon into our neighboring towns, Long Island offers music festivals, Broadway theater, concerts, movies, recreational fun, business opportunities, excellent hospitals, parks, museums and convention centers. Social distancing should be practiced at all venues allowed to open. Enjoy and Stay Safe!
May God Bless and keep you and yours.
