Spring has come to our beautiful community of Fort Salonga, and with it the Spring activities that we all enjoy. While our annual Egg Hunt was unfortunately cancelled due to rain, the Spring Brunch was the usual success, with a large turnout from the community. Due to the generosity and support of local businesses the door and raffle prizes were enjoyed by the winners. County legislator, Rob Trotta, spoke to the Fort Salonga residents at Indian Hills Country Club about several topics of interest to the residents. (see article inside for more details.) The centerfold features some great pictures from the brunch.
Additionally, inside this issue look for articles on local topics of interest such as the LIPA power plant in Northport, the Smithtown Master Plan, and updates on Brenna Estates and the development at Indian Hills.
You will want to read the next installment of the history of Henry Cartwright Brown, the early Fort Salonga resident who owned Brown’s Best Bricks, and lived in the house which is the current clubhouse of Indian Hills Country Club.
