Hooded Sweatshirts given to CPN Volunteers have this logo map of College Point on the backs. This year, 2022, marks the 20th year of CPNs service along the East River shore between the parks.  For 50 years Hermon and Carol MacNeil’s home and studio was located above the “C” in “College Point.”  Thanks for your “housekeeping”, CPN Volunteers.

Kathryn Cervino reports that College Point volunteers have been cleaning, planting, and beautifying Hermon MacNeil Park since 2002.

“Uncle Hermon”  would be Sooo… proud

The MacNeil Medallion marks the 150th Anniversary of his birth. Available on eBay.

They periodically scour the shore line of the East River in between MacNeil Park and Powell’s Cove Park, raking, planting, collecting trash, plastic, and any debris that threaten the life, beauty, and enjoyment of College Pointers along this public shoreline of the River.

To honor the work of CPN Volunteers, 25 MacNeil Medallions were given to Kathryn Cervino, president of CPN to distribute to her Volunteers at College Point.
