Riverhead Town’s Anti-Bias Task Force will hold a meet-and-greet event to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month on Wednesday, Oct. 11.

The event will take place at the Antigua Cafe, located at 309 East Main Street in Riverhead. It will start at 6 p.m. Anti-Bias Task Force Chairperson Mark McLaughlin said there will be complimentary hors d’oeuvres. 

McLaughlin said the “festive” event will be a good opportunity for “people to learn more about us,” and is hoping that the community will take the opportunity to become more acquainted with the ABTF’s members, celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and understand the ABTF’s goals.

According to McLaughlin, there will be a DJ, Hispanic performers and some “surprise” guest speakers for the occasion.

“It would be a great way to connect,” McLaughlin said. He thanked the people of Riverhead for their support for the new ABTF, and said, “We want to create results.”

McLaughlin said he is hoping that Riverhead residents can become more familiar with the ABTF and vice versa. “We’d like to be a beacon of hope,” he said.
