Dear Long Islander,
With less than a week until Thanksgiving, Long Islanders are kicking the holiday spirit into high gear as they prepare for turkey day. This weekend is set to be chilling and wet, with a small possibility of snow, but there are plenty of great indoor things to do this weekend, and it looks like the week will most likely bring us some more beautiful fall weather - perfect for those upcoming Turkey Trots! To better help Long Islanders plan their weekend fun next week, the Newsletter will be sent out on Wednesday, and highlight the best fun for long Island happening throughout the holiday weekend. No matter how you plan to celebrate, be sure to enjoy the time with family this weekend, and throughout the holiday season as you make the most out of the holidays here on Long Island!
