The Memorial Day Weekend with its many parades and events honoring our nation’s heroes marks the official beginning of our summer season. At hip we have several traditions that mark our summer and we want to make sure that you’re aware of them.
The 66 days of Summer Raffle tickets are being distributed and the drawings will begin on Monday July 1st at Noon. That means that there is still time to order your tickets so you don’t miss the opportunity to win all summer long. This year we’ve changed the dates of the contest to start on July 1st and end on September 30th. We will post pictures of each drawing and the results on each Tuesday.
The Annual hip Picnic will be held on Tuesday June 18th at the Englewood Boat Basin in Englewood Cliffs. This is a great event that brings us all together for an evening of fun, food and friendship; not to mention that entertainment provided by the River Jam Band featuring Bill Jones and Company.
This summer will also mark the kick-off for our plans to celebrate hip’s 40th Anniversary in 2020. We will be having a gala celebration on May 1, 2020 at the Double Tree Hotel in Fort Lee.
At hip the summer also means that our Bergen Modification Access Project (MAP) is in full swing. The good weather is a perfect time to complete those outside projects. In Hudson, The Special Assistance for Independent Living (SAIL) program makes similar accommodations for those who need them. Please consult the latest newsletter for a full list of all the programs that we provide.
Remember we’re open all summer and ready to answer your questions and direct you to the resources that you need. We’re always happy to hear from you.
