Celebrating Inwood with backpacks and barbecue at the Five Towns Community Center


The annual Inwood/Back to School Day event appeared to put smiles on the faces of children who received new backpacks filled with assorted goodies and a barbecue lunch complete with burgers, franks, side dishes and drinks served up by Applebee’s and helpful local volunteers at the Five Towns Community Center in Lawrence on Aug. 25.

Nassau County Legislator Carrie Solagés, a Democrat from Elmont, hosted the three-hour event that included Girl Scout Troop 720. Five Towns Kiwanis donated the school supplies that were inside the bacpacks.
