In fact, it was Jack who asked him to get involved with the HIA. According to Sanders, “The HIA is a dynamic organization which improves the quality of life in and out of the Park. When people have problems, they know they can turn to us to help solve them. That’s what makes us different. We are truly responsive and that’s our priority. The members of the Board of Directors leave their egos home and concentrate on what’s best for the members of the HIA.” During Arthur’s first term as President, the HIA established the first Intergenerational Day Care Center of its Kind in the nation – after a long 3 year effort make by many dedicated volunteer to comply with State, County and Town regulations. Serendipity Day Care Center was originally funded with federal and state grant money and is open to everyone.

He has worked tirelessly for the March of Dimes as Chairman of the Board for the Long Island Chapter, the American Lung Association, the American Kidney Association, and New Ground, a program for underprivileged children. According to Sanders, “The secret of success is to never take anyone for granted and people will always rise to the occasion.” As a strong believer in positive thinking, he explained, “The staff of HIA is beyond belief and the work they do and the spirit in which they do it is incredible.” During his first term as President (1988-1989), he hired Marcy Tublisky as Executive Director of HIA and Arthur believes that Marcy has helped make the organization an effective, dynamic force on Long Island. Looking to the future, Sanders says, “In the years ahead under the leadership of Howard Kipnes and other future leaders, the HIA will continue to make Long Island a better place to live and work.” Arthur Sanders has two grown children and resides with his wife, Janet, in Woodbury.
