- Members of the civic attended Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine’s recent Civic Roundtable. Representatives from dozens of civic organizations in Brookhaven Town participated in the event, discussing issues affecting their areas. Attendees had an opportunity to speak to both town-wide and neighborhood-specific concerns with the Supervisor and to advocate for ways to improve the quality of life in their respective communities.
- The civic continues to advocate for development in the area that complies with the Land Use Plan. Executive Board members recently met with owners of a local fast food restaurant to discuss proposed improvements to their building and how to comply with the Architectural Guidelines in the Land Use Plan.
- Members of the civic attended the monthly meeting of the Lake Ronkonkoma Advisory Board. The Lake Ronkonkoma Advisory Board, consisting of representatives from the three municipalities that border Lake Ronkonkoma (Suffolk County, the Towns of Brookhaven, Islip, and Smithtown), New York State, the Ronkonkoma Chamber of Commerce, and the Lake Ronkonkoma Civic Organization addresses issues regarding lake water quality and environmental issues in the Lake Ronkonkoma Watershed.
We believe it is important for our youth to be involved in supporting and working with and for their community, and, as Nicole states in her essay, “any act of community service, no matter how big or small, will make an impact on the community.”

To open the festival, after the Pledge of Allegiance, Stephanie Ross beautifully sang our national anthem. For the children there were the pony rides and petting zoo as well as the bouncy activities. There were many vendors who offered a large variety of goods to keep shoppers happy. Lots of holiday shopping was accomplished!
Special thanks go to Ann Zapata for help with “paint a pumpkin,” Andy Glut for his help with set up and so much more, as well as to our board members who volunteered their time and energy. A big thanks goes to Chester’s for once gain providing us with worms for our DEC Fishing Clinic. The Events Committee also thanks Legislator Tom Muratore for the Corrections Dept. display. We also thank the Ronkonkoma Fire Department for providing a fire truck and a stand-by ambulance, and the DEC for their fishing clinic instructions. Our lake is our biggest asset and it is a wonderful way to enjoy a fall day---the beauty of our lake, fun, food and shopping---and being with others who are also having a great time.
