Since it is #GivingTuesday I wanted to reflect back on what an amazing job a young girl in our community did this month to give back to others this Thanksgiving.
10 year old, Lana Moreno has a heart of gold and held her 2nd annual Give A Gobble Food Drive on Saturday, November 11th at the AMVets Post 48 in Ronkonkoma.
Lana Moreno started Lana’s World Hunger Dream at 8 years old in August of 2015 because she wanted to help people in need of food on Long Island. Lana has been collecting donations, shopping for food, donating items, running food drives and participating in community events for the past 2+ years. Last year the “Give a Gobble Food Drive” was a huge success and 117 Turkeys and trimmings were collected to donate to the Lighthouse Mission of Bellport. Lana was so grateful and excited with that number but, we knew she could top it and SHE DID!
Think Big Theater Artsis one of our favorite places to visit since we attended one of the Travelin Trunk Shows this past summer. Season 2 of the Travelin’ Trunk show starts this weekend and we are so excited!
“The Travelin’ Trunk Show is at 11am on Saturdays & Sundays. Perfect for ages 2-7. Think Mr Rogers meets Magic Garden. New live theater episode and story every weekend.”
Enjoy relaxing on the lake with your family on a pedal boat, kayak or row boat.
Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy all that Belmont Lake State Park has to offer. Kids will love the playgrounds, hiking trails, various gaming courts and fields and if you enjoy fishing you can do that, too.
