Local Civics Join Forces
The Civic Association of the Setaukets and Stony Brook on Monday publicly welcomed the Three Village Civic Association into its membership via a merger.
Judy Shivak, longtime president of the Three Village Civic Association, presented a check of approximately $400 to Ron DiBiase, president of the Civic Association of the Setaukets and Stony Brook, representing the last of its funds.
"I think it'll add to our diversity," DiBiase said of the merger. "It's good to have representation from all over the community. Many hands make light work."
The announcement comes during a membership campaign being conducted by the Civic Association of the Setaukets and Stony Brook. Leaders of that organization, which has been around for 70 years, said this past summer that the organization would be seeking more members to help keep it thriving.

With plenty of small trinkets in every corner of the store, it was no problem finding something delightful for $20, and many people walked away with bagfuls of scarves, lights, toys, signs, or jewelry plucked from the eclectic selection.
