At the October 2, 2018 Board Meeting, Mayor Longobardi and the Board of Trustees honored Lucille Zimmer for her many years as the Chairperson of the Beautification Committee.
Mayor Longobardi read the following:
Over 30 years ago, largely due to her passion for gardening, Lucille saw the opportunity to beautify certain areas of the Village with flowers; hence the Floral Park Beautification Committee was formed with Lucille and a couple of volunteers.
Today, the committee is a dependable, hardworking group of gardening enthusiasts who volunteer their time to enhance the Floral Park landscape. With Lu at the helm, she coordinates the purchase and planting of the flowers, and ensures they are watered and weeded, even on hot summer days, so they bloom into beautiful, vibrant plants.
The success of the Beautification Committee is due in no small part to the dedication and commitment of its leader – Lucille Zimmer. It is with deep appreciation that I present you with this Certificate for helping keep the “Floral” in Floral Park.
