Huntington Notebook: Free Kayak Storage for Seniors

News and notes from the Town of Huntington.

Free Kayak Storage for Senior Citizens

Huntington senior citizens who are participants of the Town’s Senior Center can store their kayaks at the Centerport Senior Beach House during the warmer months for free.

“Providing rack space at no cost at the Beach House makes sense and anything we can do to help encourage our residents to continue exercising and living a healthy lifestyle is a worth-while investment,” said Town Councilman Mark Cuthbertson.

To learn more about this kayak rack program or for questions about the many other programs offered through the Town of Huntington’s Senior Center, please call the Senior Center hotline at: 631-351-3253.

First Male Member Inducted into Huntington Women's Organization

Dennis Sneden installed as the first male member of the Soroptimist International Club of Huntington on Monday in a ceremony at Finley's in Huntington Village.

Dennis Sneden has been actively involved with the Huntington Soroptimist Club for over 25 years.

Soroptimist is an international organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Soroptimist members belong to local clubs, which determine the focus of volunteer work to their communities. The Huntington chapter will be awarding a scholarship to a female head of household who is pursuing a course of study to re-enter the job market or improve her career to benefit her family. A local high school senior will also receive a scholarship and the club will sponsor children to attend summer camp whose families could not otherwise afford to provide the experience.

"Dennis is a very active member of his community and is very much at home in an organization that is dedicated to philanthropy, personal and professional development," said Councilwoman Susan Berland, who attened the event. "We congratulate him on his installation and wish the club success in their upcoming endeavors.”
