Dear Friend and Supporter,
Thank you to all of our existing members and a warm welcome to
our new members. Your support helps reach the goal of preserving this parkland for
your family now and future generations.
Please be aware that your membership renewal and/or your donations,
are tax deductable contibutions and may be remitted with the form enclosed in the
We are making great strides towards our goals for maintaining
the Park and ultimately restoring the Farmhouse on the land.
We have been awarded several Suffolk County Grants to begin the
stages to apply for status on the State & National Registry of Historic Places.
Once this is accomplished, we can start moving forward on the building. We assure
you that our work will always respect the history and the integrity of the land.
The site contains an 1810 Historic Homestead once owned and occupied
by some prominent Long Island families with notable historic recognitions; The Smiths,
The Hallocks, The McCormicks and most recently, the Commerdingers. The Park is located
in Nesconset, north of Lake Ronkonkoma and nestled within the 90 acre preserve known
as Lily Pond Park.
Through Grants and contributions of your generosity, we have begun
to work with the Suffolk County Water Authority to run water back to the park. Water
will help with the safety of the area and will be in place as we seek to adopt a
gardening project with the Cornell Institute. One-Hundred percent of all money raised
goes directly into Restoration and Preservation efforts.
We hope that you can set aside some time this new year to consider
supporting our cause.
Please consider membership, brick engraving or just a donation.
We appreciate all you can do.
Peace & Earth's Blessings,
Michael Fallacara, Director
