All had fun at the recent Beach House BBQ hosted by the Town of Huntington Senior Center. Huntington residents, senior center staff, and volunteers from various elder care agencies all came together for an afternoon of live music, great food, and good company. Family First’s, Alyssa Cottone, volunteered for the event by signing residents in and selling raffle tickets for many impressive prizes. Thank you to everyone who donated prizes, food, beverages, and their time.
