For many years we’ve had the pleasure of attending many of the wonderful summer programs at Steppingstone Park.
We have always felt part of the evening’s entertainment, regardless of the program, since the performers always addressed the entire community, and made us all feel part of the evening.
Unfortunately, Sunday evening Aug. 16, was different. It was an evening devoted to Persian music, and not a word of English was spoken. We felt totally excluded, because we did not understand the conversation with the audience.
We hope in the future that the performers and the sponsor, the Persian Cultural Committee, recognize that the Great Neck Park District provides this facility for all of the Park District members, and we expect to be recognized as part of the audience.
