2014 Thanksgiving Food Drive

By   November 21, 2014

The Community Service committee would like to thank everyone for their generous donation to our Thanksgiving Food Drive.  It was a huge success. We were able to donate 7 boxes of food and a Gift Certificate for a turkey to a needy family in our community. This is done through the Lee Ave. school administration and nurse’s office, which selected an appropriate needy family. We had enough donations for a Thanksgiving meal and to fill their cupboards for several meals.

We would also like to thank contributions:  Foodtown for donating a gift certificate for the turkey and T-Mobile for a case of cereal.

Happy Thanksgiving

Left Turn Signal Installed

By   October 1, 2013

S. Broadway at Somerset Ave & Lewis St

In response to a request by the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association the NYS Department of Transportation
re-designed the traffic signal control located on S. Broadway (Route 107) at Somerset Ave and Lewis St.

Left turn and pedestrian crossing signals with countdown timers were installed at the marked
crosswalks making this a much safer intersection for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
