The Stacks – Queens Stacks Up at the Waterfront
We once again check in with our Queens chapter of The Stacks! This time Stack Lead Ethan recaps their event at their local Waterfront Center’s Bay Days! Check out all the action below.
Stack-Up was at the Waterfront Center in Oyster Bay, Long Island, taking part in the annual Bay Day activities. The Queens Stack joined several other civic groups in participating.
Bay Day, an annual event for the Waterfront Center, is held to open the summer season. Several groups, including the National Park Service and the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum, had representatives handing out information to the public. The Waterfront Center had a variety of family activities including a touch tank, a tie-dye station, and tours of the bay on a restored 19th-century sailboat.
The Queens Stack gave away game codes and a mouse pad in raffles. To enter the raffles, people had to do push ups or posting selfies on social media and tagging Stack-Up.
Turnout was somewhat depressed, as the weather was threatening all day. And the event ended early when it started to rain. However, we had good conversations with the attendees who were there. Several expressed interest and wanted to know how to find the website and learn how to donate.
What a great way to get out and spread the word of Stack Up. It is also a unique way to give back to the community. Great job in Queens!
