Amazing helpers for Inwood Day


From the water slides, to archery and the bouncy entertainment, the DJ, the dancers, the food, ices, bookbags and other giveaways and raffle prizes this year’s Inwood Day on Aug. 13 at the Five Towns Community Center in Lawrence was “amazing” said Sasha Young, one of the event’s organizers.

“It is also important to note that each and every person that volunteered had a critical role, whether planning, setting up, cooking, distributing, feeding, cleaning!” young posted on Facebook.

Plenty of people helped, including Blanca Bran, Chris Gebauer and family, Byron Alvarado Valiente and family, Syd Mandelbaum, Richard Applebaum, Jodi Applebaum and many others.

The organization included the Community Center, Inwood Civic Association and Gammy’s Pantry.
