On Sunday August 30 the chamber tree at Bayport Blue Point's Chamber Park was lit in purple for International Overdose Awareness Day and National Recovery month . Pastor David Czeisel opened the ceremony with a prayer. Councilman Neil Foley, Legislator Rob Calarco, Councilwoman MaryKate Mullins and Legislator Anthony Piccirillo attended in support of this cause. Bayport-Blue Point Chamber of Commerce is going purple all month to support those struggling with substance use disorder and celebrating those in recovery. International Overdose Awareness Day is a global event that aims to raise awareness that overdose death is preventable and to reduce the stigma associated with drug-related death.You will see purple all around our community.
Two towns one community. “GO PURPLE”
