Event Sponsored by: Michael Milas
The Bellmore Village Merchant’s Association was responsible to:
Furnish Christmas lights for the Village.
Fund the Christmas Tree Lighting Extravaganza.
Fund the Easter Parade and the Halloween Parade.
Pay for most of the cost of the new sound system.
Publish the Map/Directory.
Pay for this web site.
Pay for operating expenses.
The BVMA had sponsored the free community events for eleven years. The Christmas Tree Lighting Extravaganza included a visit from Santa, horse and carriage rides, trolley car rides, community carolers, hot chestnuts and free hot chocolate. For the Easter Parade, the children marched behind the Easter Bunny. They received free Easter eggs, free pizza and ice cream. The children marching in the Halloween Parade also received free pizza and ice cream. After the parade they were able to trick or treat safely at the participating merchant’s stores.
In the last five years some of the other accomplishments made through the efforts of the Bellmore Village Merchant’s Association, and with help from our local politicians, are as follows:
The refurbishing of the Memorial Park.
The installation of tree gratings on Bedford Ave.
Planting of the new Christmas tree behind Memorial Park, along with a watering system.
The lighting of the Bellmore Village sign at the LIRR overpass.
Repairs to the brick crosswalks on Bedford Avenue (ongoing).
Thanks are in order to the active volunteers of the BVMA that worked so hard to make Bellmore Village a better community.
