On August 23, Brookhaven Town Councilwoman Jane Bonner helped to celebrate the grand opening of Baby Boom Boutique at 176-4 North Country Road in Mount Sinai.

“I am happy to welcome Cat and Baby Boom Boutique to Mount Sinai. It’s a great place to shop if you’re a mom or just looking for that special gift for a child. I urge everyone to stop by to say hello to Cat and browse this new addition to our community,” said Councilwoman Bonner.

The new store specializes in offering simple, trendy clothing for sizes newborn to 5T with complimentary gift wrapping along with local delivery and shipping. Hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 631-403-4236.

Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and Brookhaven Town Councilwoman Jane Bonner have announced the resurfacing of Cooper Street in Shoreham.

Prior to paving the roadway, crews inspected drains and repaired and replaced damaged concrete curbing. The total cost for this paving project was approximately $167,185.

“Our 2023 paving season is in full swing,” said Superintendent Losquadro. “Cooper is a main thoroughfare for several neighborhoods off of Cobblestone Drive. It sees a lot of traffic and had deteriorated over the years. I am happy we were able to include its resurfacing in this year’s paving schedule.”

Councilwoman Bonner said, “Cooper Street is a very high traffic road that feeds into the Albert G. Prodell Middle School and St. Mark’s Church, so this repaving was a top priority. Thanks to Superintendent Losquadro and the men and women of the highway department, Cooper Street is safer for everyone.”

On December 6, Town of BrookhavenSupervisor Ed Romaine, and members of the Town Council visited Allied Pediatrics of Rocky Point to celebrate the Two Millionth Diaper milestone of Allied Foundation Diaper Bank. The Allied Foundation Diaper Bank exists to end diaper need for families who struggle to afford a sufficient supply here on Long Island. Diapers are distributed free of charge to families in need through a network of 60 nonprofit partners, including Long Island Lending a Helping Hand.

Allied Foundation is a for-impact organization founded by the pediatricians of Allied Physicians Group in 2015 and Long Island’s only member of the National Diaper Bank Network. They use a combination of fundraising and program implementation to improve the health and well-being of people in the community.

Without access to clean, dry diapers, some families resort to unsafe diapering practices, resulting in infection, rash and poor health outcomes. Currently, diapers are not recognized as a basic need by SNAP, WIC or Medicaid. Disposable diapers can cost $80 per month, per baby-up. To a donation, visit www.alliedfoundation.org. Donations up to $20,000 will be matched.
