SPECIAL TOWN ADMINISTRATION NEWS
Community Survey — For Huntington residents (50+) wishing to age in their homes: We invite you to participate in a survey for those who wish to age in their homes here in Huntington. The survey asks about the kinds of needs, priorities & interests you think you may have and your possible interest in a membership-type organization that provides volunteer, discounted or paid services. You can download the survey here or pick up a copy at Town Meeting or at the Town Office. Completed surveys can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the Town Office before July 31, 2019.
Emergency Resources Available During Power Outages: If hazardous winter weather knocks out your power, we are ready to open the doors of the Town’s emergency shelter located at the Community Church of Huntington’s annex (4910 Main Road – next to the Town Office).
Whether you’d just like a warm and friendly place to hang out during the day, want to read, play some games or visit with neighbors, use our WiFi, kitchen or shower facilities, need a place to sleep, or want to fill up your buckets with clean water, we’re here to help. If the door to the annex isn’t already open, just stop by the Town Office or give one of the shelter coordinators a call and we’ll be happy to get you set up
When winter storms hit, it would be great if you could check to make sure your neighbors are okay – and please help spread the word about this community resource to those who may not know it’s available. Thank you.
Please call one of Huntington’s Emergency Shelter Coordinators to learn more or to find out how you can help. Here’s to a cozy and safe winter for all Huntington residents!
