Beautification is looking forward to 2019….and our first event is SpruceUp was on May 11. SpruceUP A joint project with the Bay Shore-Brightwaters Summit Council, Spruce Up had over 30 sites spruced all over town with 200 people taking part in this revamped community event. Beautification’s spot was the Train Station entrance garden, designed by Greg Moran. It will be completed before summer.
Next Up you will see the Hanging Baskets all over Main Street area. They really define the beginning of summer in Bay Shore, going up in time for the Memorial Day Parade.
We will be continuing our many town projects along with a few new enhancements. Its a time of year to plan for the warmer months and look forward to Spring. Please see the News section for more details.
We welcome new members and hope to see new volunteers. You can reach us at: BayShoreBeautification@gmail.com

This community relies on the team work between the Chamber, Schools and Volunteers. Please use the 2019 Dues Notification and Hanging Basket Sponsorship Our work in town depends on your generosity!

New Gardens at the Train Station
Decorate Downtown for the Winter Holidays
The Street Garden Program is underway, and ten gardens around town have been selected for the attractiveness they add to our street fronts. Look for photos of the winning gardens displayed in the library showcase. Winners also receive a copy of the photo. Next year, think about recommending your garden for this honor—it just has to be a garden, small or large, that can be seen from the street. Send your name and address by mail or to our email and identify which part of your property should be considered
Veterans from the Beacon House are again hired to weed and clean our downtown area from June through October. Beautification has funded this program for many years and it is a pleasure to see our streets litter and weed free. Do you remember when it wasn’t???
