[ARCHIVED] New park bench in North Babylon celebrates 100 years of Lions Club

From the Town of Babylon Beautification Program: Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Councilman Terry McSweeney joined several members of the North Babylon Lions Club for the unveiling of a new bench in Phelps Lane Park as part of their 100th anniversary. The bench, which looks like a lion itself, will give children visiting the park a place to relax during a fun day at the park. New York State Senator Phil Boyle, Suffolk County Legislator Tom Donnelly and several other dignitaries were also in attendance.

The dedication of the bench and engraved brick pathway is a wonderful opportunity to commemorate the service of this organization that has a long and proud tradition. 

Richard Irizarry, Lions Club District Governor for Suffolk County, was presented with an official Certificate of Appreciation for his efforts in North Babylon and commitment to bettering the community. He has been involved in several beautification efforts, including: spearheading the Holiday decorations on the decorative lampposts on DPA, creating the infamous Boy Scout weekend “Turk-A-Ree” at Belmont Lake Park, hosting the Annual May Family Street Fair and making sure North Babylon is planted with colorful flowers along DPA, the Sylvan Ave Beautification Site, the Rich Schaffer Adopt-A-Spot, the High School and Library areas as well as the beautification site located at Hubbards Path & Sunrise Highway.
