Busy With Service Projects

We've been busy in recent months with two service projects.

On April 13, Peconic Bay repeated a popular service project for the Parent Leadership Initiative. In this program, we teach a class about online resources available free of charge from public libraries, using the computer room at the Riverhead Library to give participants hands-on experience accessing the library's online catalogue and databases. Once again, the class was organized and taught by Peconic Bay's Mary Ann Miller, head librarian at Suffolk Community College in Riverhead, and librarian MaryPat Takacs, a former Zontian who continues to volunteer for this worthwhile endeavor.

Almost a month later, on May 11, Diane Greenberg and Mona Rowe spent an evening sorting food as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers food drive. During this nationwide campaign, Americans donated a record 77.1 million pounds of non-perishable food, which is then sorted and delivered to local food banks, pantries and shelters to help needy families.
