The Patchogue Lions Club held its tenth annual "Christmas in June" event on Thursday, June 24 at Boomer's Family Fun Center in Medford. For the fifth consecutive year, as part of its ongoing community service, Gershow Recycling sponsored the event by donating $2,500.

Approximately 150 school children from seven elementary schools in the Patchogue-Medford School District were chosen to be deserving to come to this year's event by their respective principals. Since the Patchogue Lions Club has started "Christmas in June," more than 1,000 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 Vito LaMonica, Event Chairman and Past 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."
