available to our participants, we offer great community activities that have always been very successful. Train rides
to Montauk via the LIRR for sightseeing, an annual costume party for the Halloween season, the annual cops and
kids basketball game, as well as a paint night offering over-sized holiday decorations, made for lots of fun for both
the participants and our volunteers. We thank those volunteers who continue to make the Special Needs Unit the
biggest and best Special Needs program in the country.
