YMCA of Long Island & Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities Announce Water Wise Water Safety Kids Art Contest
Partnership Focuses on Promoting Water Safety Awareness Ahead of Swim Season
The YMCA of Long Island announced today that it has partnered with Stew Leonard III Children’s Charities, Inc. to launch the inaugural Water Wise Water Safety Kids Art Contest to help make children more aware of the importance of water safety. Children age 12 and under are encouraged to use this unique opportunity to express their artistic interpretations of water safety and share their own tips for peers. Both organizations strive to educate and engage local communities about the importance of being a responsible swimmer, and this joint venture is the latest initiative aimed at keeping Long Islanders safe this summer.
Do you know how you often hear women say that when their husband is sick it’s like having another child to take care of? Well, it is totally the opposite in our house. If Mike is sick it often will take me all day to realize it. Me on the other hand, well let’s just say he definitely knows it when I’m not feeling well.
As a mom though, whether or not you’re feeling well there are too many things and too many people to take care of to just spend the day in bed or on the couch. Instead we get dressed, down some vitamin C, and do what we need to do as best we can (and hopefully find a little time to rest on the couch).
The Learning Experience of Mount Sinai is having a St. Jude children’s research hospital fundraiser this Sunday, May 20th, 2018.

Showcase Cinemas announced its first-ever partnership with Fandango! This means that movie-goers are now able to purchase tickets and reserve their seats ahead of time to Showcase Cinemas’ screenings through Fandango. The best part – in tandem with the announcement, Showcase has launched Fandango Fridays.
As part of the program, guests who book their Friday movie tickets through Fandango will receive a FREE regular popcorn upon arrival. I KNOW WE LOVE Movie-Theatre Popcorn (it is one of the best parts about going to the movies).
