Volunteers for the South Country Community Leadership Network pulled out their gardening gloves and tools during participation in the fifth annual spring Front Yard Cleanup, held on May 11 in Bellport. 

Each year, the Network receives nominations for those whose properties are in need of a little sprucing up and TLC. Winners work alongside the crew of volunteers to beautify the properties through the removal of leaves and yard debris, lawn cutting, hedge trimming and plantings. One hundred percent of materials used during the cleanup are generously donated by local businesses and government. The Network’s goal in hosting the Front Yard Cleanup is to assist residents in making a better first impression of the South Country community.

The South Country Central School District would like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their donations: Bloomin Haus, Suffolk County Legislator Rob Calarco’s office, Fantastic Gardens of Long Island, Home Depot in Bellport, Jason Crane Landscaping, Brookhaven Town Councilman Michael Loguercio’s office, Susan Toplitz, Woodside Nursery and South Country Community Leadership Network volunteers. 

The South Country Community Leadership Network is a network of community organizations within the school district, joined together to assist the community and its residents. Its mission is to assist residents in reaching their highest potential by helping families in crisis, implementing prevention and intervention strategies for at-risk individuals, developing its youth and addressing underlying issues to promote a stronger and safer community.
