News / Rebuild the Beach
Labor Day Weekend has come to an end and fortunately Hurricane Hermine only brought fantastic surfing conditions to our Long Beach, New York. The July Fireworks that were cancelled in July were launched on Friday Night. We watched them from our roof top. It was a beautiful clear night and they were a spectacular sight. Thank you City of Long Beach.
Rebuild the Beach had a busy summer and we are looking forward to our upcoming events. October 1st is Irish Day, we will be set up at Station for Hair. October 8th & 9th, City of Long Beach Fall Festival at Kennedy Plaza. October 23rd Shopping Crawl at Ocean Ride Cycling Studio. October 29th Halloween at the Plaza with Arts in the Plaza. (don't worry, we'll remind you next month)
Follow us on Facebook for any additional shopping events.
Enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
July 4th Ready
Long Beach High School Academic Awards Night was a huge success.
Rebuild the Beach, asked our candidates to write an essay about what they feel needs attention in our community. The selected essays, initially were not my first choice but after rereading them along with 20 + other essays, we selected 2 for our annual scholarship. Both essays were personal, honest and caring.
One student wrote about the need to help our veterans. She was opening up about her grandfather and expressing how necessary it is that our community, society & world needs to assist what's in front of us. We all know it's easier to look away but it's time that we cease looking away and starting looking and helping.
The other selected essay was about the highs and lows of social media. As we all know, there can be a tremendous amount of abuse in the Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat arena. I was impressed at how candid this student was and how ahead of her years she is with wanting to express the importance of using the arenas for positive things, building people up, not bringing them down.
What I've learned from both students and their essays is we all need to be kinder and more helpful. Reach out, get involved, help others that are less fortunate. Think about what you are doing and the ramifications.
Sending peace and light for a beautiful June!!!
