Commack-Kings Park Rotary’s Protect the Bluffs Initiative – 

Register NOW for their Family Color Walk/Run

The Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club will be hosting a fun, Family Color Walk/Run to kick off fundraising for its new Protect the Bluffs Initiative.  This family-oriented walk/run event will take place on Saturday, October 19, 2019 (rain date 10/20/19). Students and families will check-in between 8 AM - 9 AM and the walk/run will begin at 9:30 AM.  The route will start at W.T. Rogers Middle School and proceed to the beautiful Kings Park Bluff, and then return back to W.T. Rogers for more family fun (food trucks; music; sponsor giveaways, etc.).  Participants will have the option of only doing half of the route, before returning to the middle school.  Student and family registration is now open at the club website and event sponsorships are available for local businesses.  Residents are invited to participate in this family-priced community fundraiser with their families and have fun, while working together to help protect our precious shoreline.  Student community service credit will be provided for participants.

The shoreline bluffs suffered severe erosion following a series of local storms in 2018 that actually forced Town of Smithtown officials to close the boardwalk at the Kings Park Bluff.  The purpose of this local Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club initiative is to support Town of Smithtown repair and maintenance efforts along the shoreline to protect our bluffs, which residents visit and enjoy regularly.  Specific projects would include supporting those efforts and strategies suggested by the Town’s Department of Environment & Waterways, which have proven effective in slowing erosion.

This event will also serve to bring community awareness to the issue of shoreline erosion and the Commack-Kings Park Rotary’s other local and international initiatives.  Come and learn about the Rotary and its motto; “Service Above Self.”  The Town of Smithtown Youth Bureau will be assisting in the coordination of the Protect the Bluffs Initiative.  Visit commackrotary.org ASAP to register for this fun event, supporting a wonderful local cause!  Contact Stephanie Dunaieff, Rotary Club Secretary at sdunaieff@commackrotary.org for further information about the Commack-Kings Park Rotary Club and this local initiative kick-off event.  #####
