About the Project: The Brick Studio & Gallery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art collective organization located in Rocky Point. Their goal is to connect artists through a cooperative art education center and gallery dedicated to showcasing the art of their members and faculty.  The goal at the Brick Studio is to build momentum, grow, and develop our space to include and engage artists from near and far, working in all mediums. Artist in residence programs will be offered to artists, providing them with long-term working studio space, experience in teaching, and exhibiting their work. Moreover, they hope to create a safe space for students to learn and grow locally and also develop international exchange programs here on Long Island. They envision a burgeoning group of artists and artisans creating an “Artists Row” here in the charming historic downtown Rocky Point which enriches the community, its residents, and participants of all ages on Long Island.

Guest Speakers from the Citizens Preparedness Corps

1LT Alexandria Wiedenbaum and SMSgt Edward Metcalf, who work with the Citizens Preparedness Corps, said having a plan and basic supplies is far easier to do in advance than in the days just before or just after an emergency.
 
Background Info: Governor Andrew Cuomo's Citizen Preparedness Corps gives residents the knowledge and tools to prepare for emergencies and disasters, respond accordingly, and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. New York National Guard troops, working with experts from the New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES) and local emergency management personnel, are travel across the state providing talks to a variety of groups. The program was designed by DHSES and covers a broad range of emergency preparedness topics, like developing a family emergency plan, stocking up on emergency supplies, and registering for NY-Alert, the free statewide emergency alert system. The Rocky Point Rotarians that were present at the meeting received a wallet-sized “Z-Card” with emergency preparedness information.
