St. Marks is inviting the community to its annual Family Appreciation Day this Sunday, May 2.

This free secular event is an opportunity for residents to meet community groups from all around the neighborhood. It’s a celebration of Sheepshead Bay and the organizations that make it great.

Kicking off at 1:30 p.m. on the corner of East 18th Street and Avenue Z, there will be free lunch as well as raffles, games and rides for kids, and a magic show at 4:00 p.m. There will also be entertainment by Twilight Entertainment, O’Malley Step Dancers, T Kang Karate and more.

Meet your community groups like the Kingsbay Y, Sean Casey Animal Rescue Center, Bay Improvement Group, Sheepshead Bay/Plumb Beach Civic Association and many others. Locally elected leaders, including Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz and State Senator Marty Golden, will be there.

Oh, and most important, Sheepshead Bites will be there with our own table, again giving away stickers and other goodies!

The event ends at 5:00 p.m. For information contact the St. Mark business office at (347) 274-0573.
