Town Presents “A Storybook Summer for Seniors”- 10-Week Summer Beach Program to Start June 22nd

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray announced that the town’s Senior Summer Beach Program is set to begin its 48th season at Lido Beach Town Park on Monday, June 22nd.          

“A Storybook Summer for Seniors” is all about enjoying a summer of fun, friends and great activities during our ten-week program at Lido Beach Town Park,” said Murray. “From taking an aqua-exercise class and listening to live music, to enjoying craft classes and sing-alongs under Lido’s “mushroom” sun shelters, the Senior Summer Beach Program provides the perfect way for seniors to spend their summer days.”

Mature Hempstead Town residents ages 60 and better can participate in a wide array of activities, daily classes and entertainment that is offered. In addition to painting, fitness classes, dancing, crafts, aquatic exercises, bocce and movies, the Senior Summer Beach Program features daily live performances under a festive tent. This summer, during “Senior-Junior Week,” special activities are planned for seniors who wish to share their summer beach experience with their grandchildren (pre-registration required).

The Senior Summer Beach Program takes place weekdays from June 22nd through August 28th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Lido Beach Town Park located at 630 Lido Boulevard. Senior Summer Beach Program passes are issued to senior residents and allow free admission and free parking weekdays. Those who prefer not to drive may take free Senior Enrichment bus transportation from designated pick-up stations on appointed days. Although refreshments are available for purchase, it is suggested that participants bring their own lunch.

“I encourage those of you who have never visited our fun-filled program to venture down to Lido Beach Town Park and take part in all that the Senior Summer Beach Program has to offer,” concluded Murray.

Senior residents who have not received their free Senior Summer Beach pass in the mail may obtain a replacement card upon their first visit to the program. Please contact the Department of Senior Enrichment at (516) 485-8100 for questions about this or any other program offered by the Department of Senior Enrichment.
