Rita worked with developmentally disabled adults for almost ten years and then began working at Cablevision. She is an avid reader, gardener, animal lover, environmentalist, and fan of all artistic expression. Rita joined the Association because she wanted to play an active role in the renaissance of Baldwin. Besides her work on the Beautification Committee, she arranged tours of exceptional private gardens in Baldwin for BCA members.
Because of her work on behalf of our hamlet, Rita was honored by the Baldwin Herald as its 2015 Person of the Year. She is excited about continuing the work of bringing public beauty and art to the streets and buildings of Baldwin.
