SEA CLIFF CIVIC ASSOCIATION WELCOMES NEWCOMERS AT ANNUAL DINNER
On Sunday, September 28th, the Sea Cliff Civic Association welcomed 22 new families to the village at its annual Sea Cliff Newcomers Dinner. The new residents moved into the community during the past year and come from places as far away as Denmark and as nearby as Albertson. A few returned to the community after spending years elsewhere.
The dinner, hosted by Civic Association President Ann DiPietro, has been held annually for the past several decades.Village Board Trustee Carol Vogt
said she had attended such an event when she moved into the community 38 years ago, and Trustee Ed Lieberman reflected on his welcome in 1995.
In her remarks to the new residents, Ms. Vogt talked about the many organizations within the village and the opportunities to become involved in the community.
Mayor Bruce Kennedy also spoke, discussing his fondness for the community and the difficult balancing act of preserving the community's traditions and character while also being receptive to change.
Library Director Arlene Nevens talked about the variety of services at the library, including access to e-books and the availability of passes to museums in the City and on Long Island such as MOMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gugenheim, the Intrepid, Sea, Air and Space Museum, Long Island Children's Museum and Westbury Gardens.
At the end of the evening, the recent arrivals were presented with gifts including the game Sea Cliffopoly, gift certificates to Gallaghers, and Sea Cliff posters and postcards.
