Massapequa continued to cope with a hurricane while transitioning to the holiday season this week.
The clean-up continued, while resident gathered for Thanksgiving and the holiday shopping season geared up.
Here's a look back:
The Massapequa Park Village Board met for the first time since Hurriicane Sandy and added $90,000 to their emergency management expenses. The board expects those expenses to be covered by a $90,000 reimbursement from FEMA.
The Town also continues to work on clearing trees and debris off the road as a spokeswoman said between 50 to 75 trucks are still on the road.
It was short week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, which was difficult for many who are deling with damaged or lost homes due to the storm. For the fifth consecutive year, Manor East gave out free dinners for those who needed a place to go on the holiday.
After the Thanksgiving holiday, or the shopping season kicked off. Retailers throughout the area seemed to be getting an early start on Black Friday.
The holiday was marred somewhat by acts of vandalism in East Massapequa as police said eight homes near Carmans road were hit by graffiti.
