Beach Walk Marks The New Year
At 11 a.m. the diverse group set off for a brisk hike along the dunes and beaches behind Fort Tilden.
Northeast Chapter Littoral President Don Riepe said, “This is our 30th year of doing this.”
“We only missed last year, (after the hurricane) when the beach was closed,” he said.
As they have done every year, the group tried, unsuccessfully, to flash signal their counterparts in Sandy Hook, New Jersey.
“Later we came back to the Rockaway Artists Alliance gallery,” Riepe noted. There they celebrated the new year and enjoyed refreshments.
RAA provided live music, which included an impromptu sing along, and visitors took in the current Gifted exhibition. The showcase is on view through Sunday, January 19th.
