Little Ava Smith enjoys a cool splash as state and local officials join for the Memorial Day unveiling of the new Babylon Village Fountain in front of the Babylon Historical Preservation Society Museum on Main Street.  The new statue, a replica of one that originally stood in Babylon almost 100 years ago, honors the work of women within the community.
