Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce President Denise Rogers gave an update on local business happenings and upcoming events at the final village meeting of the year Monday night.

Rogers said the Lynbrook Chamber's "Shop Local Lynbrook" card program has been a success, especially during the month of November and on Small Business Saturday, which was observed on Nov. 30. The card allows residents to receive big discounts at local stores, helping boost and support small businesses.

"Lynbrook was and continues to be open for business," Rogers said. "So, please visit our local merchants and shop local."

Rogers also announced that on Jan. 22, 2014, the Chamber will be honoring Jennifer Derrig, owner of the Lynbrook Irish Shop, as Businessperson of the Year. Rogers said that Patrick McDermott of Lynbrook Recreation, Fire Chief Edward Hynes and Inspector Ronald Fleury will also be honored by the Chamber.

Tickets for the event are $40 a person and can be purchased at the Lyn Gift Shop or by contacting the chamber at 516-599-3436.

The Village announced that they will hold a public hearing on Jan. 13, 2014 regarding several proposed locals laws, including search warrants, boarding houses, fingerprinting and message signs. 

The Village also announced that a holiday blood drive will be held on Sunday, Dec. 29, 9 a.m. to Knight of Columbus Hall, located at 78 Hempstead Ave. All donors will receive two tickets to see the New York Mets at Citifield in 2014. To be eligible, you must bring ID with signature or photo, weigh at least 110 lbs., age 16-76, eat low fat foods and have no tattoos.

What are the parking rules for the holidays?? Do you have to feed the meters?? Overnight parking restrictions lifted?? It seems every year this is never posted.

I saw the ad for the Shop Local Lynbrook card program. I emailed the address that was mentioned to get the card. I never received a response. The key to marketing is that once you make an offer, you have to follow through with the delivery. A missed opportunity...I did my shopping online.

I am looking into opening a small business in Lynbrook. We are currently looking at a particular location to see if it is feasible to do so. It will be an Ice cream & Coffee Café
