Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony J. Santino and Sr. Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby invite all golden-aged town residents (ages 60 and over) to celebrate the 50th year of the free Senior Summer Beach Program at Lido Beach Town Park. The 10-week program is packed with fun activities including crafts, entertainment, dancing, movies, games, health services, presentations and more.
“The summer is a great time of year to live in America’s largest township, and it is even better for seniors who take advantage of our amazing Senior Summer Beach Program as we celebrate our golden anniversary,” said Santino. “The crashing of the waves and the warm summer rays of the sun are just around the corner and so is our great lineup of activities. See you at the beach!”
“Our Senior Summer Beach Program boasts activities that are second to none and offer a great way to spend many summer days,” said Goosby. “Good times are sure to be had by all who attend.”
The program at Lido Beach Town Park runs from June 26th to September 1st from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The activities include favorites such as bocce ball, shuffleboard, line dancing, swimming and daily aqua aerobics classes.Or, why not unwind with pastimes such as crafts, painting, movies and games presented in an air-conditioned building. Health services, including blood pressure screenings, are also offered. The highlight of each day is special live entertainment under an outdoor tent. Giant-sized mushroom shelters ensure maximum comfort for picnicking as well. Residents participating in the Senior Summer Beach Program gain free admission and parking. For those who prefer not to make the drive, our Department of Senior Enrichment will pick you up with free buses from designated gathering stations.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch, but refreshments are also available for a fee on program days. For more information on the Senior Summer Beach Program, or any other services offered by the Department of Senior Enrichment, please call (516) 485-8100.
“This summer the place to be is at Lido Beach Town Park celebrating the 50th year of the Senior Summer program,” concluded Santino.
