On Saturday, the LIU Post women’s basketball team helped out at the Long Island Fair at Old Bethpage Village Restoration in Old Bethpage.
The student-athletes conducted potato sack races, as well as skill games for kids. Additionally, the Pioneers assisted with a variety of fair booths.
“The Long Island Fair was a great experience for the student-athletes,” said Head Women’s Basketball Coach Deirdre Moore. “It allowed for many discussions to take place regarding agriculture, both now and in the past. The fair was also an opportunity to examine and explore many family values that were emphasized throughout our nation’s history. I was really pleased with the work ethic displayed by my players. They embraced the day and made it special for countless families and other volunteer workers.”
The Long Island Fair has been a part of Long Island history since 1842. It continues to be an event planned, organized and staffed by local citizens.
