Town Announces New 2012 Schedule for Popular Senior Event
North Hempstead, NY– Supervisor Jon Kaiman and the North Hempstead Town Board recently announced the 2012 schedule for the free senior event, FunDay Monday, held at North Hempstead Beach Park in Port Washington.
Organized through the department of Community Services, FunDay Monday draws hundreds of seniors every Monday from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The event offers live music, entertainment, dancing, card-playing and a chance for seniors to renew old acquaintances, all while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Town beach.
“FunDay Monday is a great opportunity for our seniors to enjoy a relaxing afternoon at North Hempstead Beach Park,” said Supervisor Jon Kaiman. “We have arranged fun-filled activities every Monday as well as free transportation. Seniors can simply call 311 to arrange for transportation and for more details on the program.”
North Hempstead’s Department of Community Services released the following schedule for all FunDay Monday Events:
July 9 is “Welcome Back Beach Party”. Come on back for a FunDay Monday reunion with a performance by Stan & Edie. Stan is the original lead singer of the Del Satins, Dion’s background vocal group on all of his hit records. Just recently, he voted into the Rock n' Roll hall of fame.
