    Today The SAAGNY Foundation and its volunteers visited the Hilltop School in Haverstraw, New York for its annual Fun Day.  

    Over 80 students enjoyed carnival games, snacks, crafts, prizes, and goody bags.  The children's  smiles and pure joy were a treat for all the volunteers.  But what truly made it special for every volunteer today and those who have donated items to The SAAGNY Foundation was the little boy who stopped us from  leaving so he could give us this thank you note.  #worthit

    Last night SAAGNY members enjoyed a beautiful evening in Central Islip, New York meeting old friends and making new ones, as the Long Island Ducks took on the New Britain Bees at Bethpage Ballpark.  Some SAAGNY members were able to get to the park early and have a picture taken on the field as the Ducks finished batting practice.  Although the Ducks were defeated 8-2 in the middle game of a three-game series, SAAGNY members enjoyed hot dogs, Big Al’s BBQ, and a selection of beverages.   

    Thank you to all who were able to join us at the game!

    SAAGNY members enjoyed many SAAGNY sponsored events at Expo East this past week.  On Monday, June 12, The SAAGNY Foundation sponsored its annual Lenore Goldberg Memorial Golf Outing at Linwood Country Club, Linwood, NJ.  Although it was a scorcher of a day, the cool breeze off the water was refreshing for the more than 50 golfers who played           . 

    The day included a buffet lunch, raffles, and prize winners for the longest drive and closest to the pin. 

    On Tuesday, June 13, over 180 people were in attendance at the Regional Meet N' Greet at Tun Tavern across from the Convention Center.  The food and drinks were plentiful as well as the conversation between old friends catching up and new ones getting acquainted.  It was nice to spend some time with our District 1 Regional partners as well.                         

    The SAAGNY Member Breakfast held on Wednesday, July 14, featured Bill Petrie, Promo Corner as our educational speaker.  Bill's presentation of "Finding  Your Voice" in the promotional products industry was on-point for the 65 plus attendees.  The breakfast included an omelette station, full buffet of waffles, bacon, oatmeal, and more.  Pre-registered attendees even received a $15 gas card.

    Many SAAGNY members stopped by the Regional Member Lounge for a snack including - hot pretzels, ice cream treats,  and coffee.  Other members stopped by the booth for their daily concession voucher.
