Every year our Neighborhood Senior Center hosts a special Luau themed lunch, where we play music, dance, and
come together to eat a unique Hawaiian themed meal. Some years we have special guests join us, some years its
a very special musical performance, but this year, we held our party in a special place.
For the first time ever, we were able to host a community-wide event at the Tanenbaum Family Pool, and the results
We were overwhelmed in the best possible way by how many guests, both Senior Center members and non-members,
joined us for the evening, as approximately 400 people were treated to a night of swimming, dancing, delicious food,
and groovy tunes from local musician Al Smith. We were also joined by NY State Senator Tony Avella, Assemblyman
Ed Braunstein, and Assemblyman David Weprin, who have all played a big role in helping us renovate and re-open
the newly acquired pool club.
As much fun as we typically have at our Luau's - which are one of four different Cultural Awareness events that the
Senior Center annual hosts, so far this year they've also held a Greek Festival - it was incredibly special to be able to
introduce our community to the Tanenbaum Family Pool club, and show them that there's a great place in Little Neck
for them to beat the heat during the summer.
Special thank you's go out to our senior staff for organizing and carrying out such a fantastic and engaging, not to
mention well organized event. We're also thankful for our teen volunteers, who worked tirelessly despite it being
one of the hottest days of the year.
