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.
Our 2nd Annual Let ALL The Children Play in May event was amazing. We want to thank all those who came to the event and supported the LATCP Playground and our mission of Inclusion. Whether you came for the day to enjoy the festivities with your family, volunteered your time, were an exhibitor, donated a raffle prize or were a local business sponsor; your efforts helped made for a successful event and WE THANK YOU!
The children had an amazing day with their families. You can feel the happiness through all of these beautiful smiles pictured, below.
There is, that adorable face wrapped up with a big red bow. This is the gift that probably made someone the best parent in the world, or maybe this was the promise of commitment from the most loving caring significant other. Or perhaps it was the gift of joy and companionship to an elderly or lonely relative. That’s wonderful, who wouldn’t be thrilled? The questions now that the tree is down and everyone is back to their regularly scheduled lives, what do we do with this puppy?
I recently had the opportunity to visit Keep Moving Forward, Inc. in Garden City – a state of the art intensive physical therapy facility for adults and children. The vibe was just as bright and uplifting as its owners, Shai and Amy Eapen, PT, DPT, who want everyone to feel empowered.
