Myron Blumenfeld

Trees are the most important element in the Port Washington streetscape. They make all the difference in the world and I’m a great advocate of planting trees. It was a great project of the Residents for a More Beautiful Port Washington when we started almost 50 years ago. The tree is a logo of the group. From trees I took a great interest in parks. And then I realized that Port Washington has a great, long history of environmental groups starting with the Lyman Langdon Audubon Society. Now there are a half-dozen environmental groups in Port Washington. So I love this etching of a tree, by Aida Whedon. I also have a personal connection with her because she gave art lessons to my two daughters.

To carry the tree analogy even further, the Port Washington Public Library is one of the branches of my life that I am most involved in. I have been a trustee for seven years and read stories to the youngsters in the Children’s Room Story Circle every chance I get.
