Dear Long Islander,
After some serious downpours and a slight cold snap we’re looking at high temperatures in the 60s and a fair bit less rain over the next week, though the clouds will still be lingering in the sky and there’s presently a chance of precipitation predicted for Sunday and Tuesday. Now that May is here there will be plenty of flowers and trees beginning to bloom, filling the Island with all the colors (and the pollen) of spring. There’s a lot happening this month, including Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Memorial Day, so be sure to check out our Family Fun Guide for all the best events happening on Long Island!
Summer Day Camp at Catalina Beach Club!
Send Your Children to Enjoy Summer Adventures at Camp Catalina!
The countdown has begun! Summer is just a few short weeks away. Camp Catalina is a wonderful family experience that offers a unique, nurturing, and creative drop-off camp for children ages 3-7. Their staff is made up of teachers and counselors who are skilled and caring. Camp Catalina gives your child the best of what most day camps have to offer: swimming, karate, movement, cooking, arts and crafts, science, themed days, and special events. Your children will have hours of enjoyment, fun and great times at a beautiful setting, right on the beach. You and your children will have camp memories that will last a lifetime. Camp Catalina is looking forward to an amazing summer and hearing from you! See you soon!

Hot Off the Presses
LongIsland.com's 2014 May Family Fun Guide: Spring Fairs, Festivals, and More!
Discover All of Long Island's Great May Happenings and Events!
We have officially entered the month of May which is known for flowers that have officially sprung from the ground creating a beautiful landscape across Long Island. As the flowers continue to bloom, locals are also beginning to liven up and enjoy the warm Spring weather. With more sunshine during the day, there are plenty of fun-filled events to keep you busy this month. Earth Day may have been last month but that is no reason to stop helping the environment. Volunteers will be at sixteen parks across Long Island who will help clean up, improve and sustain our state parks and beaches for the third annual I Love My Park Day on Saturday, May 3rd!
