Huntington Republican Committee Will Accept Retired American Flags from May 20 to July 15

The Huntington Republican Committee is inviting town residents to bring their retired American flags to the Huntington GOP office, located at 229 Main Street, Suite 204 in Huntington. Flags will be collected from May 20 to July 15.

Flags that have been worn-out, frayed, torn or soiled can be placed in a drop-off bin at the Huntington GOP office, where it will be properly retired. According to the U.S. Flag Code, when the flag is “in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display,” it is recommended that the flag be “destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”

With Memorial Day, Flag Day and July 4th approaching, many are proudly displaying their flags and, in many cases, replacing their old flags. It’s an ideal time of the year to collect and properly retire any worn flags.

“We encourage residents to drop off their American flags that can no longer be considered fit for display,” said Tom McNally, Chairman, Huntington Republican Committee. “We will personally see to it that these flags will be retired in a proper and respectful manner.”

Huntington Republican Committee Partners with Family Service League for Its Third Annual Winter Coat Drive

The Huntington Republican Committee has announced that its third annual Winter Coat Drive is currently underway and, this year, it is partnering with the Family Service League (FSL), where the coats will be distributed to those in need.

In addition to men’s and women’s coats, they are requesting new and slightly used gloves, mittens, boots and scarves. All donations may be brought to Huntington GOP headquarters, located at 690 New York Avenue in Huntington, Monday through Thursday from noon to 4 p.m. Last year’s drive was very successful, with 100 coats being collected.

Founded in Huntington in 1926, FSL delivers tangible help and crisis intervention across a spectrum of service areas, including mental health counseling, addiction prevention and treatment, homelessness, job training, trauma counseling, early education, and family and senior support services. In all, FSL offers over 60 programs at 20 locations throughout Long Island.

“In the short amount of time that we started this, it has become bigger and bigger,” said Tom McNally, Chairman, Huntington GOP. “We have seen a growing need for these items as the winter weather approaches, but we have been able to meet those needs, thanks to the generosity of the local residents.”

“Unfortunately, warm coats are a luxury for some children and adults residing in Greater Huntington,” said Karen Boorshtein, LCSW, President/CEO, Family Service League. “We appreciate the efforts of Huntington Republican Party Chairman Thomas McNally to help us provide winter coats for those in need. The new and gently used coats being collected during the GOP’s coat drive will be given out to community members who utilize the programs at Family Service League’s Huntington Family Center and to those individuals residing in our shelters.”

Donations will be accepted until March 23, 2024. To learn more about the Family Service League, visit www.FSL-LI.org. For more information about the Winter Coat Drive, call (631) 549-6800, email HQ@huntingtongop.org or visit www.huntingtongop.org.

The Huntington Republican Committee is proud to announce that its Town Clerk and town Council candidates were victorious on Election Day, as well as Stephanie Bontempi for re-election as County Legislator in the 18th District.

Brooke Lupinacci and Theresa Mari won their respective Town Council elections, joining fellow GOP board members Ed Smyth, Salvatore Ferro and Dr. Dave Bennardo. This is the first time since 1957 that Huntington has had an all-Republican Town Board.

“When we took over the majority in 2021, we promised the citizens of Huntington that we would keep Huntington the best place on Long Island to live, work and raise a family,” said Thomas M. McNally, Chairman, Huntington GOP. “Tuesday’s election results confirm that we have delivered on that promise.”

Mr. McNally said Ms. Lupinacci and Ms. Mari “will help build on the successes of the past two years to make Huntington an even stronger, safer and more affordable place to live while maintaining our unmatched quality of life.”

Andrew Raia was the top vote-getter on the Huntington GOP ticket, garnering nearly 60% of the vote in the race for Town Clerk. “Andrew ran a very strong campaign,” Mr. McNally said. “This was a mandate for government efficiency and the results showed that.”

Additionally, Ms. Bontempi won a close election to remain as Suffolk County Legislator for the 18th District. “Stephanie’s race was a hard-fought one,” Mr. McNally said. “Her re-election allows her to work with the new county executive, Ed Romaine, to make Suffolk a safer and more affordable place to live. I wish to congratulate Ed on his victory and our candidates on their successful campaigns.”
