It was with such great pride that Momee Friends was able to give special recognition to all of the children we recognized last year as our very first recipients of the Shining Child of the Month Award. Our Inspiring Child ceremony at the LATCP Playground even brought out County Executive Ed Mangano, who praised the amazing work that these young ones do. Each one of them have a special mission and are making such a big impact in our communities. In the days following our event, we were so pleased to see that the kids are even inspiring and supporting each other in their respective missions by helping to spread the word of each other’s goals.
This month, we would like to recognize and award 10-year-old, Keith Passanante of Lindenhurst as our Shining Child of the Month – another perfect example of kids helping kids.
Our 2nd Annual, Let ALL the Children Play in May event happened on May 22nd, 2016. At the event we had the pleasure of sharing the incredible stories of how our local children are making a difference in our community. Our event welcomed ALL families to enjoy a fun-filled day at the LATCP playground at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow. We were over joyed when Nassau COunty Executive, Ed Mangano joined us to present our awards to these amazing children.
Each month, Momee Friends of Long Island gives special recognition to an outstanding child who voluntarily gives back to our community. They serve as an inspiration to others, demonstrating how small acts of kindness and compassion positively impact the greater community. They are nominated by their parents, family members, friends and neighbors.
George Rincon is seventeen years old and a scout here on Long Island. The community project he is doing at The Let All The Children Play Playground – Field 4 at Eisenhower Park will bring smiles to those who visit the park. The scout project he is doing will be a great addition and have a positive impact on the children who visit the park.
