Lindenhurst - (WALK) The anniversary of superstorm Sandy on Long Island is Tuesday. Ceremonies throughout Long Island this week will honor volunteers who pitched in to help neighbors in the aftermath of the storm.
Residents and visitors attended a ceremony in the Town of Babylon Sunday, where a new monument will stand at Shore Road Park in Lindenhurst. The park is among communities south of Montauk Highway heavily damaged during the storm. Visitors were asked to bring non-perishable food-items, personal care products, and pet foods for people who, 12 months later, are still recovering from the storm.
Also in Lindenhurst, hundreds of people are expected to participate in a vigil and cande-lighting ceremony at the town square gazebo on Hoffman Avenue Tuesday. The event will include a 15-minute photo montage illustrating storm damage and efforts to rebuild and recover. The program will be displayed on an outdoor screen, according to event organizers. The ceremony is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
