NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
Village of Williston Park
From the Desk of Mayor Paul Ehrbar
This past Memorial Day American Legion Post 144 held its annual memorial service followed by a Village wide parade. A number of people spoke here and elsewhere throughout the country, many in eloquent fashion. Although I may not be as eloquent as others I d like to pass my thoughts on to those who were unable to attend this meaningful event. Following is my brief statement given on Memorial Day:
ďIíd like first to thank the members of Williston Park American legion Post 144 for their continued sponsorship of this Memorial Day parade,
Prior to the parade I was able to attend their memorial service which was quite moving. Those veterans and members of the ladies Aux who passed away during 2014 were memorialize during this somber event.
While we salute and honor our Veterans and service men and women on this occasion, today, Memorial Day is set aside to specifically honor all those service men and women who have given their lives in defense of this great country, the United States of America.
Although family gatherings are an integral part of this day we must never forget the meaning of this National Holiday. While store sales dominate the newspapers this day, it is not about these sales but rather a day to reflect on our countryís history and those who has been instrumental in allowing us to continue our way of life.
Since the revolution individuals of all national heritages have died through their dedication to the vales of this great country. Iím sure we all know of someone who has made the ultimate sacrifice of life for the principles established in our constitution. It is those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice that we honor and remember today.
At this time I ask for a moment of silence in recognition of these heroes. Although American soldierís involvement in world conflicts has decreased, our valiant members of the armed forces continue to remain in harmís way. Death to anyone in the armed forces whether on the front lines or not, is a tragedy.
God bless our service men and women and please keep them in your prayers.
God Bless the United States of AmericaĒ
The day has passed yet it is imperative that we continue to remember and honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who continue to remain in harmís way.
Please note that on June 13th the Village will be collecting e-waste at the highway yard (next to Kelleher Field) from 9am until 2pm. All electronic items will be accepted. If an item has a plug or battery it is acceptable for drop-off. Help us to prevent harmful disposal by brining your unused, broken and outdated items to the site for appropriate disposal.
Sign Up Instructions for Notification Email's
The Village has decided to implement a new program in an attempt to keep our residents informed of events and meetings that are occurring in the Village throughout the year. This is a voluntary program that will allow the Village to provide notification whenever necessary to participating residents in a fast and efficient way . While events, whether routine, special or of an emergency nature are regularly placed on our web page, we would like to expand the notification process. In order to reach as many residents as possible, in a short period of time, it has been decided that an email system be established to accomplish this goal. For all those wanting to participate, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. By doing so, the Village will add that email address to our contact list. If an individual has more than one email address we request that each address be sent separately from the email address that you would like on our Village list. That will allow staff to easily put the sending email on our contact list. Whenever a new event or document is posted to the Web site those on the Village contact list have an opportunity to receive a copy of that posting in their personal email box, automatically. While it won't be necessary to visit the Village Web site to receive the important information being sent, we encourage all to continue visiting the site as much of the information located there is standard and informational yet not of a nature that needs to be sent out. If any resident, after enrolling in the program decides to discontinue this service their email address can easily be removed from the Village list by sending a follow up email to the same address (email@example.com). While every attempt will be made to reach as many of our residents as possible, we ask all to pass this information and email address on to friends and neighbors who may not be aware of the program, yet would like to participate. Please note that the aforementioned email address is to be used for the stated purpose only, as this will be a dedicated email address. For other communications with the Village, please use the other already established email address.
