North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the North Hempstead Town Board are proud to announce the 2014 schedule for the FREE FunDay Monday senior program.
FunDay Monday, organized by the Town’s Department of Community Services, has been a favorite of seniors in the Town for decades, and includes a series of events held every Monday from July 7th to August 25th at North Hempstead Beach Park in Port Washington. The four hour long events run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and feature a different theme each week.
“FunDay Monday is a fantastic series of events that allows our senior residents to see both new and familiar faces,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “Residents are able to have a lovely time at the beach, while enjoying entertainment and fun activities.”
Each week, senior residents can take advantage of entertainment, fitness, games, music, and dancing. The weekly class schedule also features line dancing from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., yoga from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., and mahjong from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.. In addition, FunDay Monday offers photo shoot hours from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. with photos being available to download at: www.NorthHempsteadNY.gov/FunDayMonday.
