Holbrook, NY - October 13, 2015 - The Holbrook Beautification Committee in conjunction with the Holbrook Chamber of Commerce and Legislator Bill Lindsay sponsored their Fall Clean Up this past Saturday to promote the beautification of Holbrook’s main roads, medians, and sidewalks.

Over 75 local residents, boy scouts, girl scouts, business owners, sports teams, and students launched from Seneca Middle School to make their neighborhood a cleaner and safer place for all. Volunteers were able to collect more than 50 bags of litter and debris throughout Holbrook and Holtsville.

“The Holbrook Beautification Committee’s Community Cleanup has become a model for successful beatification events throughout my legislative district,” said Legislator Bill Lindsay. “I am extremely proud of all of our volunteers for their efforts in beautifying our home.”

In addition to the Clean-Up Legislator Bill Lindsay, Chamber Member Chris Pulitano and many dedicated volunteers have been actively cleaning, weeding, and mulching the medians along Patchogue-Holbrook Road in order to beautify our community.

“Liter is like graffiti, you have to remove it quickly otherwise it builds up and becomes a common nuisance on our community,” said Lindsay. “I want our children to be able to grow up here and have a better environment than I did as a kid – that starts with cleaning and maintaining what we currently have and building upon our community even further to create long term sustainability.”
