The Levittown Chamber of Commerce held its general meeting on August 17 at Domenico’s.
The guest speaker was Matthew Rizzo, a project manager at Grassroots Environmental Education Jump In! Program. Matthew discussed Long Island's water quality. Contamination from sewage, pesticides, and other pollutants, as well as the over-pumping of water supplies, threaten Long Island's ground and surface waters. Matthew discussed water conservation and protection tips which include watering lawns in the very early morning (before 5am), never dumping prescription drugs in the toilet (King Kullen will accept), curbing pets and disposing of pet waste responsibly so that it doesn’t get absorbed into the ground and many more tips. Visit liwater.com for more helpful tips and information. The Jump In! Campaign is an outreach program that is funded by Long Island Community Foundation and designed by Grassroots Environmental Education.
The chamber’s next meeting is on Wednesday, September 21 at YES Community Counseling Center at 12:30pm with guest speaker, Laura Giunta, Director of Community Outreach for Senior Helpers. Laura will present, "Communicating with the Elderly for Business Professionals". All are welcome to attend.
