MIDDLE ISLAND, NY – On Saturday, May 11th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended Longwood Day and Relay for Life at Longwood High School in Middle Island. The family fun day of Longwood Pride included local resource information, games, activities, and arts and crafts by civic groups, student organizations, and other vendors.
In addition to Longwood Day, the district hosted Relay for Life at the high school football field. The opening ceremony and the “Power of Purple” lap celebrated survivors of cancer and honored those who have lost their battle.
