JFK Lighthouse Efforts Honored


Lighthouse_082214A (2)Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and Councilwoman Anna Kaplan gathered at John F. Kennedy Elementary School in Great Neck recently to honor students for their participation in the Save the Stepping Stones Lighthouse Contest. Students created dioramas, posters, stories, poems and pictures to raise awareness to help save the Stepping Stones Lighthouse.

Earlier this year, Bosworth announced the formation of a partnership with the Great Neck Park District and the Great Neck Historical Society to restore and preserve the lighthouse. The partnership was announced following a meeting last year between the Supervisor and representatives from the U.S. General Services Administration.
