Beach Day



Beach Day             Monday, August 18, 2014          11:00 a.m.         Greenwich Point

This year’s Beach Day is on August 20, with a rain date of August 21. Beach Day is one of our favorite outreach days when two busloads of families from an East Harlem community center, Little Sisters of the Assumption, come visit us at Greenwich Point.  Those who volunteer enjoy it almost as much as the families. Many of the children have never been to a beach or put their toes in water like ours. It is a wonderful community resource to share. Volunteers meet just past the concession stand at Tod’s Point. People come throughout the morning. The buses arrive mid-morning, children are given toys and families and volunteers meander toward the water for frolicking. A picnic lunch and dessert are served to families and volunteers, followed by more play time, game playing, a hike to the Seaside Center, and socializing, before returning to the buses. It is a fun and meaningful experience for everyone. Please plan on joining in. It’s great fun.
