North Hempstead Town Council Member Veronica Lurvey attended a community clean up on September 22 at Whitney Pond Park in Manhasset. The clean-up was in partnership with Temple Israel, Temple Beth-El and the Great Neck Chinese Association to build community relationships. The Town donated four trees that were planted during the event. Volunteers worked throughout the afternoon to plant the trees and to help continue to beautify the park. Also in attendance was Nassau County Legislator Ellen Birnbaum.
