On Tuesday, August 22nd, 18 members of Spring Creek Senior Partners (SCSP) took a trip to New York State (NYS) Senator Roxanne Persaud’s Fun Day at Canarsie Park. The SCSP members took a bus that was provided from the SCSP office at 12:30pm and returned back to the SCSP office at 4pm. 

NYS Senator Persaud’s fun day ran from 1pm to 4pm and included; a Back to School backpack giveaway (child had to be present), school supplies, personal hygiene supplies. water bottles, key chains, and fanny packs. 

Additionally, it was a carnival like atmosphere with a balloon artist, a magician, stilt walkers, raffles, refreshments, and so much more! There was a variety of musical genres playing throughout the event. Everyone in attendance was able to play games there as well. Some of the games they were able to play were: large checkers, chess, connect four, and there was even a beanbag toss game! This was a great ending to the summer and the weather cooperated as well. This was a free event that was open to the public.
