WPOA hosts season closing event

As summer approaches, the Western Property Owners Association (WPOA) will host an End-of-the-Year Meet and Greet at Repeal, 55 New Hyde Park Road, on Thursday, June 16 from 6-8 p.m. This Meet and Greet is open to Western Section residents who wish to come out, meet their neighbors, get to know a bit about the WPOA, and have a relaxing couple of hours in a local setting. The WPOA will provide appetizers and a complimentary first beer or wine to each Western residents attending our event.

The WPOA was established in 1935. Its By-laws “Purposes” calls for the WPOA to promote the general welfare and provide betterment for members, their families and property; to secure harmony and friendliness among neighbors; to improve the beautification of grounds; to maintain and uphold the zoning ordinance; to maintain cleaner, safer, better-lit roads; and to secure adequate police, fire and school facilities.

The 2021-22 season was once again filled with varied events. Some of this year’s highlights include guest speakers addressing current issues of resident concern; the annual West End Tree Lighting Ceremony; a general meeting visit from three former Mayors from the Western Section (Frank Tauches, Gerry Lundquist and John Watras); a Town Hall meeting for School Board Candidates; Meet & Greets at Repeal; a NY Islanders Night at UBS arena, and an active pursuit of safety improvements along the New Hyde Park Road corridor (partnering with St. Anne’s Church and School, the Village and the County).

At this time, the WPOA is seeking residents who are interested in serving as officers and directors of the WPOA. This volunteer service is a meaningful way to give back to your community and connects you with other active residents in our Western Section and the Village. If interested, contact President RoseAnn Vernice at ravernice26@gmail.com.

The WPOA would like to thank all volunteers who serve the community through the Property Owners Associations, and looks forward to renewing its service to the community in September.
