On May 31st, Margo Cargill, Dan Marcy and Seth Sylvan of the LIRR Expansion Project outreach team joined kindergarteners at the Dryden Street Elementary School in New Cassel for the school’s Community Day. The team met with kindergarteners to talk about the Expansion Project and safety on the railroad. The students tried on safety vests and hard hats.
Members of the Expansion Project team and Community Ambassadors regularly meet with local elected officials, civic leaders, business owners and residents to discuss the project and elicit feedback, as well as participate in career days and STEM events at schools in Expansion Project communities.
