East Meadow celebrates their community


The sun was shining bright over Senator Speno Memorial Park on June 18 for the 31st annual Community Pride Day. After a two-year hiatus, tents lined the walkway of Speno Park highlighting all of the goods and services that East Meadow has to offer.
There was popcorn, cotton candy, bagels and more delicious treats for attendees to enjoy. The color run and pie eating contest were real crowd pleasers. East Meadow Kiwanis held their tree dedication ceremony in honor of those Kiwanians who have died, and this year they added a tree for those who have died as a result of Covid-19.
​​There were also plenty of activities for children. Youngsters had their faces painted, tumbled down an inflatable slide, played games and sports, perused an art show featuring the work of East Meadow School District students and watched live musical performances. The East Meadow Public Library even had a walking story tour set up.
