Peconic Pediatrics sets aside a day each year to invite community members to learn about safety, nutrition and health issues in a fun setting. This year their annual Fall Family Fun Day Festival and Flu Clinic will be held on October 21.
All members of the community are invited to attend this free event at 34 Commerce Dr. Riverhead between 9 a.m. and noon.
Representatives from the Riverhead Fire Department, Flanders-Northampton Volunteer Ambulance and Riverhead Town Police will be at the event to help educate parents and children about safety issues. Riverhead Town Police representatives will also do car seat safety checks.
Goodale Farms will be on hand with fresh produce and milk. Peconic Pediatrics’ nutritionist will make a healthy, tasty dish using the produce from Goodale Farms for everyone to try.
There will be face-painting and pumpkin-decorating.
A Chinese auction will be held with prizes donated by local community businesses. Prizes include a FitBit, a 2-hour sail from North Fork Sailing, oil change gift certificates, dinner and brunch gift certificates and other prizes according to the event organizers. All proceeds raised by the auction will be divided equally among Riverhead Fire Department, Riverhead Police Department and Flanders-Northampton Volunteer Ambulance community fund accounts enabling them to continue to do events like these.
The flu clinic is for patients of the practice only. Parents may receive a flu vaccine also if insurance allows.
This is a rain or shine event.
