The Manhasset Chamber of Commerce (MCoC) has been more active within the past year, raising awareness in the community, helping businesses throughout the pandemic, and gathering support for a new environmental waste water treatment system on Plandome Road.
On Earth Day, April 22, rain or shine, the Manhasset Chamber will host a community-wide clean up, where business owners and volunteer residents will sweep the sidewalks, clean parks, and collect trash within a one-mile radius. MCoC is proud to partner up with the Science Museum of Long Island and Town of North Hempstead (ToNH) for the community clean-up. The Science Museum of Long Island will be organizing a beach/pond clean-up with the Manhasset Bay Protection Committee.
Gloves and trash bags will be provided by the ToNH. The chamber will distribute free reusable shopping totes to the community, with the winning artwork from the Chambers Earth Day Student Logo Contest! There will be a flower/vegetable seed fundraiser at Mary Jane Davies Green to raise funds for Manhasset Beautification. MCOC will also be distributing brooms to each business owner to help maintain their storefront throughout the year.
The event is a great opportunity for community service hours, team building, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts etc. Many residents are always looking to get involved in town, and all are welcome. It’s important to invest in our community.
This event was hosted by the Chamber in the past and it was a huge success. Many students and organizations were involved in the clean-up. Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts organizations weeded the sidewalks and planted in the flower beds along Plandome Road.
All event info can be found on www.ManhassetChamber.com under “Chamber Events” or “Community Calendar.” Registration is not required but highly encouraged. ‘
Adult and Student Volunteers can choose to register for Plandome Road or Beach Clean-up. Plandome Rd Clean-up will meet at Mary Jane Davies. Volunteer photographers are also needed to document the event.
