Four times a year Poppy's Special Friends hosts a party for people who are disabled from all over Long Island starting as young as 6 years old. "Some of these young adults started coming 17 years ago when they were little," said Ed Kulich, the founder of this organization. "They love to dance," he added, as was evident by the full dance floor of guests swaying to music provided by a DJ. The Christmas party is the most popular.
Over 50 people attended the Sportsman's Club on Saturday, June 9, including siblings and parents of the guests who are disabled. Barbara Huber, who works for the TONH, said her group has field trips or uses the town facilities almost every Saturday. Other groups came from adult homes or their own home.
