Holbrook, NY - May 18, 2017 - Suffolk County Legislator Bill Lindsay III along with the Holbrook Chamber of Commerce once again sponsored their Holbrook Spring Clean-Up. Despite the rain, this year garnered over 50 volunteers who picked up over 75 bags of litter and debris on a cold and wet spring day.
The Chamber of Commerce first started this event with former Presiding Officer Bill Lindsay and has continued this tradition; holding 8 community cleanups with current Legislator, Bill Lindsay. From boy scouts, girl scouts, students, athletes, and parents, the Holbrook community joined together with great enthusiasm and energy, to make their community a better place.
“Turning out on a cold and wet day like we had Saturday is no easy task, but the residents of Holbrook showed up in force to give back to our community,” said Legislator Lindsay. “This clean up and similar ones in other communities are vital to maintaining our way of life here in Suffolk County. I am extremely proud of all those who participated and I look forward to working with them again in the Fall.”
