Dear Neighbor,

Since the first days of the American Revolution, through the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Suffolk County residents have had a long and proud tradition of offering themselves to the defense and security of our nation. It has been a story of ordinary men and women whose actions and selflessness helped to define this nation’s past and shape its present.


It is a history of unexpected heroes who answered the nation’s call to protect liberty and defend freedom where ever it was threatened. From battle fields of lush grassland to towering beachheads; from the open seas to desert sands, these men and women gave of themselves, not for fame, or fortune or personal reward but because they knew the true cost to humanity if they chose not answer that call to defend democracy.

On this Memorial Day, let our gratitude serve as an honor to those who are currently serving and all those who never returned home. It is because of those who were, and those who continue to be willing to protect freedom at any cost, that we are truly free.

May peace be with you and your family,

Lending Their Paws to Help Pets in Need Students from Three Village Academy really threw a bone to our community’s neediest pets by spearheading donations for the 2017 Baxter’s Pet Pantry Food Drive. This annual community effort operated by Long Island Cares, Inc. makes free pet food and pet supplies available to local pet-owning families in need. Thanks to the efforts of these students, so many animals will be able to continue wagging their tails despite their family’s difficult time.
