It was wonderful to see many familiar faces and some new neighbors at last months’ meeting; our first after the summer break. From a community point of view there were a lot of issues to discuss. Our guest speaker from Con Edison provided helpful information and answered questions. This month’s guest speaker will be Ms. Gina Monopoli, an expert in Reverse Mortgages. We try to obtain guest speakers for our monthly meetings that we think will benefit our community. If you have any thoughts or suggestions please call our hotline and let us know the program you would find most helpful.
School is back in session. Please keep in mind the speed limit on our city streets and exercise extra caution when driving near schools. Marine Park fields are again fully occupied with soccer and football players. Take a walk on a Saturday or Sunday morning and watch our young people enjoying themselves. October will be a busy month. On Sunday, Oct. 18th, the Hendrick I. Lott House grounds will be open with some events scheduled for the day. It’s an opportunity for those of you who don’t know the history of the Lott family and their past relationship to our community to spend some time there – E. 36th Street between Fillmore Ave. and Ave. S.
Save the date – Senator Marty Golden will be hosting our annual Fall Festival with the combined efforts of the NYC Parks Dept., Police and MPCA on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at Lenape Park, Ave. U, E. 36th – E. 38th Streets. This will be the 30th Halloween/Fall Festival in Marine Park. It’s a tradition we hope to continue for many years to come.
We have been noticing that the streets and sidewalks are not being swept clean. Homeowners and business owners have a responsibility not only for themselves but it is also a reflection on the community. There are garbage pails on several corners in the community, please use them and not discard garbage on the sidewalk.
I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting. Please bring a family member or neighbor. It’s important that we work together to ensure our Marine Park community continues to thrive and be a safe, fun place to live for both our young and older residents.
