A Message from the Lake Grove Mayor

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As we approach the end of a long winter, we are all looking forward to getting back to some form of normalcy. The Village Board has been considering what we might do going forward to reduce the cabin fever for all.

Our first agenda is to find a way to get our children back to socializing in a safe way. It is well known that children are suffering the effects of the pandemic in a different way than their parents and grandparents. We are taking a serious look at having limited enrollment for our summer camp. Obviously, the program will differ somewhat from prior years due to social distancing and mask wearing. Fieldtrips if any will be very limited. The safety of all concerned will be our priority. Please keep checking the website for any updates.

We are also considering a Lake Grove Summerfest sometime in August. This is an outdoor event which we are hoping can be safely accomplished by late summer while still observing CDC guidelines at that time. The event will be like past years with vendors, live music and a gathering of classic cars.

I think we are all growing weary of sheltering at home for the most part. We will follow the science pertaining to herd immunity with a larger part of the population having anti-bodies and/or being vaccinated. We are closely following any and all pandemic updates daily and we participate on a weekly group call with all County officials.

The safety of all will always be our number one concern and priority. We will continue to reach out to other communities looking to accomplish the same goals and compare strategies to operate in the safest way possible.

Those wanting to be added to our robo-call list for all Village updates can contact us at Village Hall at 631-585-2000 to be added to the list. All updates and information will also be added to the website.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Thank you for your continued support. Together, we all make this the wonderful Village that it is.

Very Truly Yours,

Robert (Bob) Scottaline, Mayor
