On August 15, more than 30 children and teenagers from the Bellport area boarded a charter bus at Robert Rowley Park for a day of fun and excitement at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Gershow Recycling sponsored the trip, which was organized by Steven Hughes, a Bellport resident and a longtime Gershow customer. Mr. Hughes asked the company for assistance in sponsoring the trip and Gershow agreed. The sponsorship went to cover the costs of transportation and admission to the amusement park.

Mr. Hughes personally invited the children to spend a day at Dorney Park, with the families’ permission. The children, whom Mr. Hughes knows from the Bellport community, have few opportunities to travel and socialize with their peers in a fun and positive atmosphere.

Since the Patchogue Lions Club has started “Christmas in June,” more than 1,900 children have participated in this fun-filled event.

“This was a nice way to give these children an opportunity to have some fun and spend the day with their friends,” said Lou Giordano, President, Patchogue Lions Club. “It gave the children a place to enjoy themselves, especially with the school year drawing to a close.”

Children were treated to lunch and then given full access for several hours to attractions, including rides, go-carts, wall climbing, bumper boats, and arcade games.

“We were very happy in joining with the Patchogue Lions Club to make this day possible for these children,” said Jonathan Abrams, Manager, Gershow Recycling. “They always have a great time here. With the summer season beginning, the timing couldn’t be better.”
