Smithtown, NY - April 27, 2015 - The Fort Salonga Civic Association (FSA) held its annual Spring Brunch at the Indian Hills Country Club and featured Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta and Smithtown Historian as guest speakers. Many Fort Salonga based businesses graciously provided raffle prizes and donations such as IGA Fort Salonga/East Northport Market, Fort Salonga Wines, Grace Music School, Bob’s Canoe Rentals, and many more.
Legislator Trotta gave a brief overview of some of the issues he has been working on to assist the residents of Fort Salonga and urged residents to contact him if they have any problems. As a retired Suffolk County Police Detective, he is concerned about the safety and welfare of the citizens, as well as the traffic/roadway concerns of the residents.
