Town Of Smithtown Horizons Center Accepts $5,000 Donation from Rotary Club of Smithtown

The Rotary Club of Smithtown presented a charitable donation to the Town of Smithtowns Horizons Center at the March 6th Luncheon, held at the Watermill Caterers. The check for $5,000 will go towards providing transportation to services and a special Substance Abuse Prevention Event featuring renowned Neuroscientist, Dr. Stephen Dewey. Town Councilwoman, Lynne Nowick presented the Rotary Club of Smithtown with an award for its continued service above self actions, efforts and generosity.


“As Elected Officials we plan everything from budgets and sidewalks to implementing sewers… But of all the things we do… I personally believe that one of THE most important is offering the services of the Horizons Center. The professionals at Horizons do amazing work to directly impact the lives of our residents, offering help when they need it most.” - Councilwoman Lynne Nowick


Glenn Williams of the Rotary Club of Smithtown worked closely with Matthew Neebe, the Director of Horizons Center and Well Life Network Director, Meryl Camer to identify the best investment for the charitable donation. The team opted to provide the cost of transportation to services and host a substance abuse prevention event, featuring acclaimed addiction awareness speaker Dr. Stephen Dewey.  


“We share the same values at Horizons as the leadership of the Rotary Club of Smithtown does… the safety and security of the community, the condition of our youth and the risks that they face. And so we thought that a Substance Abuse Prevention event was the most appropriate for this extremely generous donation by the Rotarians… I personally believe the decision to bring Dr. Dewey to Horizons as a guest speaker is an excellent one. This man is an absolute expert in his field of Neurobiology in the developing adolescent brain.” - Matthew Neebe, Director, Drug and Alcohol Counseling Services, Horizons Center
