Violet Letter: Recover, Rebuild, and Return
Website Information for Communities on Fire Island
The Fire Island Pines Property Owners Association (FIPPOA) offers important resources for us all as we move through the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Please link here for the latest information on Hurricane Sandy Recovery, including updates from "The Town of Brookhaven Permitting Seminar and Workshop Panel" held on November 17th at The Center in Greenwich Village. Nikki LaFountaine, Eric VonKuersteiner, and many others at this FIPPOA sponsored workshop have worked tirelessly to provide access to information and contacts for help and we give them and everyone who is helping us to recover, rebuild, and return -- a much appreciated shout out! Thanks to all of you!
FIPPOA has provided a summary of the meeting here.
Friends, so many of us have been through such a difficult time since the hurricane. Our hearts and prayers are with everyone as we do what we always do: step up together and move through this, coming more closely together and back stronger, as we have always done and will do now! (Pictures below: l. to r. Joyce Yaeger, Diane Romano, and Nikki LaFontaine.)
The Violet Letter will continue to post information as we receive it. We also welcome your pictures, comments, links and stories you might like to share. If you would like to receive an email whenever we update or have information we think might be important, please contact us at: email:thevioletletter.com
Need help with something? We will also post a virtual bulletin board as we go forward getting ready for the season. And along with all the sites that are working together to keep the information and support flowing, we are all in! email:thevioletletter.com
of us at The Violet Letter,
Video Clips from the workshop: The videos were taken at a distance on an iPhone and may be a bit difficult to hear. Ear buds help. Hope you find it informative based on the information but also the tone of the meeting. It really appeared that everyone was trying very hard and sincerely willing to help us. These are also on Ray Bagnuolo's youtube page: click here.
