Bring your family and friends for a fun day at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River and enjoy an oasis of quiet pleasure, rest, and refreshments as you delight in the beauty of the outdoors and gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the value and importance of informal planting while you stroll back in time. Enjoy fresh pots of iced tea and freshly baked scones prepared by the Hidden Oak Café. Take a walk through nature to the Lower Level of the Carriage House and enjoy the beauty of original hand-painted art. Meet Long Island authors face-to-face and experience their passion for storytelling. Win a day tour with an author and experience their adventures on location.
The SUMMERTIME with Long Island Authors & Artists event is upcoming on August 23, 2014 at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. While admission is free and donations of non-perishable food items are encouraged, we also hope to raise funds to further benefit EAC Network’s Nutrition Education program, which provides nutrition assessments & ongoing nutrition counseling and operates the only food pantry in Nassau County that supplies weekly grocery bags for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
Donations of any size are deeply appreciated and integral to the success of the program. Thank you in advance for supporting EAC Network. Bring non-perishable food to the Arboretum or contribute financially here: http://shar.es/PfHhM.
