What’s New:

Hello Long Island!

Happy October!  We hope all is well with you all and that you’ve had a great and safe summer.  We had a great time sitting in on the Leadership Meeting for Suffolk County’s Town Hall.  It was a great opportunity to learn of the new developments happening in Suffolk County as well as hear the concerns of many Suffolk County residents.

We also would like to thank the Veteran Association for their great hospitality.  We were afforded the opportunity to table at their renowned fall kick-off and it was truly a great time!  We are looking forward to the private presentation that we will be giving to the members there later this year.

Problem Gambling 101 presentations are one of our favorite topics and we had a great time presenting for the Central Nassau Counseling Center’s staff.  We owe a huge thank you to Ms. Peters for having us.
