BEAUTIFYING OUR HAMLET
Over the past dozen or so years, the Civic has installed and/or taken charge of the maintenance of the gardens of Sound Beach with the help of Civic members, members of the community, as well as a number of Scout troops. We’re always looking for more help, so please contact us if you would like to be part of the beautification committee.
KEEPING SOUND BEACH CLEAN
Each April we participate in an annual spring clean-up as part of the Keep America Beautiful project. Throughout the year, however, several Civic members work hard at trying to keep New York Avenue, including the Children’s Park, free of litter. A job that never ends, we welcome all the help we can get.
AROUND THE HAMLET OF SOUND BEACH
Watch this space for upcoming community events.
Memorial Day service will be held on Monday, May 29, noon, at the Sound Beach Veterans Memorial Park on New York Avenue.
Harnessing a sense of community is important for a number of reasons, including the identity of our hamlet, supporting our local businesses, and more.
Establishing a strong identity allows organizations in our hamlet to connect residents and keep old traditions alive while making new ones as well. It can also attract new visitors by showing off what makes Sound Beach unique.
If you’re hosting a local event, send us the information and we will help spread the word.
HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS
The Sound Beach Civic is committed to helping our friends and neighbors in need. Each month we collect nonperishable food items at our monthly meetings and regularly donate to local food banks, shelters, and soup kitchens, which rely on donations they receive from people like us to help keep their shelves stocked.
During the 2022 holiday season, due to the generosity of Civic members and the community at large we were able to donate to a number of groups that help the less fortunate among us.
INTO THE LOOKING GLASS OF HISTORY
Long Island is formed mostly of two spines of glacial moraines that are made up of gravel and loose rock left about 21,000 years ago when the Wisconsin glaciation formed the top layer of the earth. The Ronkonkoma moraine is the most southerly moraine and forms the “backbone” of Long Island.
