Pooch Pass Fees Waived for Town Dog Parks 180

Councilman Loguercio, Councilman LaValle and Town Board Waive Pooch Pass Fees for Town Dog Parks

The Brookhaven Town Board recently adopted a resolution co-sponsored by Councilman Michael Loguercio (left) and Councilman Kevin LaValle (right) to waive the yearly “Pooch Pass” fees. The Pooch Pass allows residents and their dogs access to the Town’s two dog parks located in Middle Island and Selden. Although the fees will be waived, a Pooch Pass is still required in order to use the dog parks. Pooch Pass fees are waived for the initial pass only. If a pass is misplaced, the cost of a replacement pass must be paid by the resident. Pictured are Councilman Michael Loguercio (left) and Councilman LaValle (right) at the Town of Brookhaven’s Selden Dog Park.

Councilman Loguercio said, “I am very happy that Councilman LaValle and I can continue to waive the fee again this year for our residents. Our dog parks are very popular and used frequently.  I still want to encourage everyone to comply with the rules and make sure that their dogs are licensed and up to date with their vaccinations, this way all our fur friends are safe.”

Councilman LaValle said, “By waiving the fees again this year, I expect to see more families enjoying the Selden Dog Park with their pets. I am committed to provide a safe haven with the best amenities for dogs and people alike, and we will continue to make upgrades to the park as needed.”

The Town’s Middle Island Dog Park is located at 1075 Middle Country Road (Route 25), just east of the former K-Mart site and the Selden Dog Park is located on Boyle Road, between Corvair Lane and Carston Street. The Pooch Pass application and Dog Park rules and regulations are available at www.brookhavenny.gov.

Paint Patchogue Purple for Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month 430

If you have been in Patchogue recently, we are sure you have noticed the purple ribbons located around town. The Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce has partnered with local businesses and elected officials to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. Patchogue has “gone purple” from June 16th through the 30th  to support local families affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Approximately 30 local businesses are participating by decorating their storefronts and stores with purple ribbons which were donated by the Village Walk.  Businesses will be offering specials on purple items in their stores and raising funds with point of sale campaigns to support The Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce Walk team.  The walk will be held on Saturday, September 28th in Yaphank and all proceeds fund efforts to help end Alzheimer’s and other dementia’s.

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, there are 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease, including 400,000 in New York State. By 2050 that number is projected to reach as many as 14 million. Patchogue Chamber of Commerce states that “simply by having a brain, every person is at risk for developing Alzheimer’s, a fatal disease that cannot be prevented, treated or even slowed. Patchogue knows it’s important to take action now to help end this epidemic.”

“We applaud the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Patchogue for acknowledging June 2019 as Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month,” said Douglas Davidson, executive director for the Alzheimer’s Association Long Island Chapter. “Our ongoing efforts to support, educate and advocate for Long Islanders affected by Alzheimer’s disease in coordination with the County and State Departments of Health, Governor Cuomo and the New York State legislature are key to mitigating the Alzheimer’s public health crisis in New York.”

On Monday June 24th,  The Float Place in Patchogue will be hosting a Sunset Yoga and Meditation at Mascot Dock in Patchogue. Below is the event flyer which contains event schedule and other details.

 

There is also a media campaign running for the entire month of June.  Help turn Facebook purple for Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, be sure to use #PaintPatchoguePurple, #ENDALZ, @alzlongisland when posting.  For more info checkout  @alz.org/abam
