The LIC Community Boathouse provides free educational and recreational outdoor activities through educational partnerships and our regular activities of kayak touring, beach cleanups, and cove paddles aboard canoes. Recycle-a-Bicycle sustains itself through bike repairs and sales (with youth employment programs), and provides educational projects, and a coming bike lending library!
Man, a bike lending library sounds good to me! And I love the availability of these free paddling excursions on the East River, sponsored by the LIC Boathouse. Truly a great couple of organizations to support. And in addition to feeling good about supporting great things in your community, you'll enjoy the following all evening:
Indian and Italian food (Scrumptious vegan options too!)
Live music by the Dutch Kills and the Pete Diamond Band
Gorgeous space, fine wine, delicious desserts
Art displays from LIC Art-o-Mat!
It sounds like tons of fun. Here is the 411:
