The numbers of participants increased as residents whose beaches were closed for the beach replenishment came to Beach 131st Street for fun, food, games and good music.

Kids danced to the music and later in the evening the movie, “Jaws” was shown on the beach.

Organizers gave special thanks to Laura Rochelle, Linda Martin, Mike Egan, John McCann and many others who made the event a resounding success.

Hank Iori, president of the Belle Harbor Property Owners Association, noted, “This beach party is just another sign of just how strong and resilient our community has become. We appreciate the fine work the Army Corps of Engineers is doing in replenishing the sand on the beach.

“Now we just need the Mayor and his Commissioners to be more forthright with their restoration plans and collaborate with the community in developing a world class system to protect our community from future hurricanes.”
