From the desk of:
Keith A. Langley, Supervisor
Town of East Greenbush
It has been a very busy start to the year at Town Hall and as we move closer to spring and hopefully warm weather, I want to share some exciting things that have been happening in the Community and Recreation Department. First, I would like to announce our new Director of Community and Recreational Services, Jessica Lansing. Jessica comes to us with extensive experience in fundraising, event planning, budget allocation, and working with children. She has been an active East Greenbush community member and volunteer for close to 20 years and understands the needs of our youth and the needs of their parents.
Since her first day Jessica has been working diligently with the Town Board to produce quality programming and activities. We now have a working relationship with many local service organizations and are working together to create a strong community with much to offer all residents.
Our summer camp program is brand new this year and quite impressive. Not only have we reallocated funds to save thousands of dollars, but we restructured the entire program to offer activities that reach every child’s interest and needs. We are also aware of and have listened to parent needs and are offering an extended care and half day program.
We also now have a Town Volunteer Referral and Odd Jobs list for our residents.
Together with the Department of Public Works Commissioner, the Town Parks are being reviewed and needs are being assessed. By creating a Facebook page and updating our website, the department is continually communicating to the community what we have to offer. Be sure to check these out at eastgreenbush.org and on Facebook Town of East Greenbush Community and Recreation.
Jessica has fit right in with other department heads and is working to include all departments in community activities and events. There are many more ideas in the works for some Town wide community events and adult programs as well. Jessica is always willing to speak with residents and hear their ideas and suggestions and most of all she says she loves when the kids drop by to visit. If you would like to speak with Jessica on ideas you can reach her here at Town Hall 477-4194 or by email
In closing, I would like to ask the community to support this positive initiative by attending upcoming events.
