Memorial Day Ceremony
Munsey Park resident, Greg LiCalzi Jr., spoke to the Board about his idea to have a Memorial Day ceremony at Waldmann Park. Mr. LiCalzi, who lost his brother Mike to the Iraq War, wanted to honor all of the fallen soldiers and particularly those who lived in Munsey Park. The Park was named after Lt. George Waldmann, who in 1943, was the first resident of Munsey Park to die at war. The ceremony will take place on Monday, May 28, at Waldmann Park at 9 am. Deputy Mayor Noone spoke for the entire Board to express the Village’s support of Mr. LiCalzi and will help facilitate his efforts.
Village Entry-Way Beautification Update
Deputy Mayor Noone read an update from Trustee Ceriello regarding the Village Entry-Way Beautification project. The Manhasset Woods Road/Northern Boulevard, Park Avenue and Copley Road entrances will be revamped and the Port Washington Boulevard entrance will be groomed within the next two weeks. During that time, the Village will also be planting 18 Right Of Way (ROW) trees. Homeowners who are interested in the fall planting should contact the Village and they will be placed on a priority list along with those residents who indicated an interest, but did not get a tree for the spring 2018 planting.
