Lakeville Estates Civic Association holds first meeting of 2023

The Lakeville Estates Civic Association held its first general meeting of 2023 on February 15, at the Lakeville-Manhasset Fire House.

Over 70 members attended the meeting.  The meeting opened with a call to order by civic association president Bill Cutrone, who announced the agenda and stated that Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jennifer DeSena would be attending later in the program as the guest speaker and to answer general questions.

The agenda was followed by New Hyde Park-Mineola Runners Club members Harold Axelrod and Stephen Cipot, who thanked the civics for assisting the Club’s 44th annual U.S.A. Long Island 8k championship race last October at CGM Park.

The civic association helped secure permits and provided volunteers and support for the event.  The runners presented a $750 donation to the Civics for its help; as well as $500 to the GCP Fire Department for providing an ambulance, and $750 to the Nassau County Firefighter’s Operation Warrior Program.

Future donations will be awarded to Boy Scout Troop 298 for its help, and to the Town’s CGM beautification fund, among others.  The Runners are proud to support the Civics and local organizations and look forward to its October 22, 2023 race at CGM.

Cutrone said 2022 was an exciting year, as civic membership increased to over 1,100 paid homes and businesses.  The civic provided 96 cartons of medical supplies and over $2,500 for “Stop the Bleed” kits that were desperately requested by the Ukrainians.

The civic association donated 500 lbs of food for our needy veterans and purchased $900 in gift cards for veterans in Northport, East Meadow and Walter Reed Hospital, to name a few.

In 2022 the civic also donated $4,750 to local High School seniors from its scholarship fund. In 2022 the town also allowed the Civic to purchase and plant an additional 18 Crepe Myrtles throughout the 11040 zip code for a total of over 40 plantings.

In 2022 the civic again sponsored its Kids Barbeque with the Garden City Park Fire Department. And sponsored its first-ever free concert at the CGM Park, as well as Christmas tree and Menorah lightings.

The End of Year Holiday Party was attended by over 200 members, including current elected officials and many former officials, including former Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, state Assemblyman Tony Durso, and officers from the 3rd Precinct.
