Locustwood Gotham Civic Meeting Announcement
December 18, 2008
Elmont Memorial Public Library
On December 5,
the Association and the community lost a great leader when Mr. George
Melnicky passed away at St. Albans Veterans Home. Mr. Melnicky served
in the US Army during World War II from 1944-1945 and later stationed
in Europe from 1953 to 1957. His service displayed his courage and
dedication to his country. Locally, we will remember him as a man who
fought to lower taxes and a man who sought for maintaining a quite,
suburban community. He had served as Treasurer of the civic for over a
decade and was instrumental in reuniting the Locustwood and Gotham
areas as a whole. Mr. Melnicky was always proud of the civic
representing the largest constituent base in the Town of Hempstead. We
will miss him not only for being a Veteran, or being a community
leader, but also for being a great individual. The Association, on
behalf of its constituents of the Locustwood Gotham area, from Huntley
Road to Elmont Road, we would like to share our condolences and
sympathies to Mr. Melnicky’s wife, Elfrida Melnicky and his extended
family. His spirit and his dedication will surely continue in the
Association, as well as throughout the community.
We would like to
wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday season. The Association would
like to send a special salute to all our veterans, the true American
heroes who served our country so bravely a healthy and wonderful
holiday season. We also want to extend our heart felt support and best
wishes to all the men and women who are serving our great country
overseas and their families. May the New Year bring peace to our world
and may nothing but good things happen to us all.
The first part of
our meeting will focus on old business and current matters that need
to address to the membership. The second part of our meeting, as per
annual tradition we will commemorate all our activities of the year.
This part of the meeting is intended to unite all our members,
neighbors and friends to reminisce the happenings of the year and to
get together to discuss the future of our organization.

preservation of all lands surrounding Belmont Park for maintaining the
quality of life needed to raise a family. Through the years, the
Association’s name has varied, however our mission never had. The
Association has served for nearly 80 years, as the “Voice of the
People,” more specifically the voice of the neighbors of Belmont Park.
We had a large
turnout at our November meeting and we are looking forward for a
larger one at our next meeting. Together we can make our neighborhood
the best place to live. Come on down on the 18th at 7:30 P.M. at the
Elmont Public Library and be a proactive component of our community.
Bring your family, neighbors and friends. It is always great to see
our neighbors together supporting a positive cause. We are looking
forward in seeing you there.
