Kings Park, NY- The Kings Park Civic Association (KPCA) announces the appointment of Linda Henninger as its new president for a term of two years beginning at the civic group’s next meeting on Sept. 7th, 2017.

Ms. Henninger succeeds Sean Lehmann, who will continue to serve as vice president. Both Ms. Henninger and Mr. Lehmann are active members of the community who have vocalized the concerns of Kings Park residents as relates to several issues affecting the quality of life here. They were instrumental in the creation of a Downtown Revitalization Plan that resulted in a funding commitment by the State and the County to bring sewers to downtown Kings Park; and are still working to facilitate a possible swap between St. Johnland Nursing Home and the State to preserve the wooded acreage on Sunken Meadow Rd., among other initiatives.

Ms. Henninger is also involved with many community-enhancing initiatives, including the Kings Park Farmers’ Market and Musical Moments, which brings live music to Russ Savatt Park on summer evenings.

“I look forward to continuing to work with Sean, the new Board and our residents on matters that impact our community,” Ms. Henninger said.

KPCA officers have a vested interest in the community and in representing the interests of its residents. Following is the newly elected Board:

Linda Henninger, president

Sean Lehmann, vice-president

Joanne Chicvak, second vice-president

The community is invited to join the KPCA as members and attend meetings, held Thursdays monthly at 7:30pm at the Kings Park High School.
