Throughout the year, Hempstead Town offers a variety of activities and events for its senior residents. One of the most popular programs is the Town of Hempstead’s Senior Summer Beach Program, now in its 43rd season. This year, the theme, “The Magic of Lido,” promises an exciting lineup of entertainment and is the perfect way for our seniors to spend warm summer days.
This free 10-week program will begin Monday, June 28 and takes place every weekday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Friday, Sept. 3. The program will feature a series of special concerts, dance shows and other forms of live entertainment, as well as arts and crafts, dancing, shuffleboard, bocce, and leather crafting.
All town residents who are 60 years of age and over can attend the Senior Summer Beach Program. Beach passes, which entitle seniors to either free bus transportation from designated pick-up stations on appointed days or free parking on any weekday, have already been mailed. It is suggested that seniors bring their own lunches; however, a refreshment counter will be open where snacks and beverages can be purchased.
If you are not involved with a senior center or have never attended any town senior activities, the Summer Beach Program is a great introduction to our senior enrichment offerings.
For additional information about this wonderful program, you can contact the Department of Senior Enrichment at 485-8100.
I invite all senior residents to come down to Lido Beach Town Park this summer to catch up with old friends and make some new ones, participate in great activities and have fun in the sun. Have a happy and healthy summer.
