On Tuesday, December 12, families from across Patchogue celebrated the lighting of the first candle on the town’s new Menorah on the first day of Chanukah. The new Chanukah Menorah was donated by Gershow Recycling in response to a request from the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce. After 20 years, the previous Menorah needed replacing and the Chamber asked local businesses to help. Gershow, which has a location in Medford, purchased it on behalf of the community. The Menorah, which stands nine feet tall and features energy-efficient LED lights, stands proudly near the Capital One Plaza on East Main Street in Patchogue Village.
Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford, and Riverhead. For more information, call (631) 289-6188.
