  2. Maybrook “PINK” for OctoberOn September 10th, the Maybrook Board of Trustees unanimously proclaimed October Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the Village of Maybrook which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. The Village of Maybrook is a proud sponsor of this great cause and support awareness for early detection. Pink ribbons are displayed at the Maybrook Government Center. Residents are welcome to display them as well. A special thank you to Cindy Lord from Lord’s Florist for supplying the village with pink ribbons!
  3. Country Club Drive and Sidewalk Project- This week, the curbs will be completed on Country Club Drive and we have a tentative paving date of Thursday, October 18th and Friday, October 19th. Weather has been and continues to be a factor for this project. We are also finishing up on the final approvals from New York State Department of Transportation of the new sidewalks being installed from Clarke Place to Oak St and Oak St. to Williams St. Our goal is to have both projects completed as soon as possible. I want to thank DPW Supervisor Matt Thorp and Village Engineer Sean Hoffman for staying on top of both of these projects.
  4. Leaf Pick up in Maybrook– It’s that time of year and leaf pick up has started in the village. Leaves MUST be bagged in biodegradable bags which are FREE and available here at the Government Center or at the DPW Garage. Just a reminder, bagged leaves will be picked up by our garbage contractor County Waste on THURSDAY’s.
  5. Motivational Speaker Marc Mero– I was asked if I could get the word out about a planned event at the Valley Central High School that will take place on Thursday, October 25th at 7 pm. This event is FREE and highly recommended for families with young adults in Middle School and High School. Marc Mero is a retired amateur boxer and professional wrestler, and now tours as a motivational speaker encouraging kids to make positive choices in their lives. He is best known for his appearances with the World Wrestling Federation. My message is to every parent in our village and surrounding communities. Please make every effort to attend this event with your children. It’s informative and hits home about staying on the RIGHT path! The local Fire Departments (Montgomery, Maybrook, Walden and Coldenham) in the Town of Montgomery came together to make this event possible and are hoping for a large turnout. Please spread the word by encouraging your friends and neighbors to attend this FREE event with their families.

I am deeply proud and honored to welcome the newly formed Kiwanis Club of Maybrook to our village. I wish to congratulate and thank the Maybrook Kiwanis Club Officers, Board of Directors and Charter Members for coming together and forming this wonderful organization in our village.
