Communities meet for fun in the sun

Fall may be here but it wasn’t long ago that members of the Round Hill Community Church enjoyed their annual Beach Day event with families from Little Sisters of the Assumption in Harlem.

This year the church was pleased to have its new senior minister, the Rev. Dr. Edward Hortsmann and his wife, Susan, with them to greet two busloads of families arriving from the hot streets of upper Manhattan to the tranquility and beautiful setting of Greenwich Point.

Precious children, caring families and dedicated volunteers with happy faces gave joy and meaning to the day, the church said. Adults and children played with new toys in the sand and water as the little ones discovered and shared new experiences with the church family.

Multi-generational and multi-cultural communities came together as they picnicked and told stories to each other. Everyone departed enriched by another great Beach Day.
