Hiking Club


Ever wanted to start hiking but didn't want to go alone or know how to start?

Well, here's your chance! The JLLI Hiking club will begin August 28th, running from August to November and then April thru June. Each month we will visit a new park, alternating between Suffolk and Nassau. From leisure walks to more moderate hikes, you decide your comfort level.

Just bring your water, hat, comfy shoes and let's get to hiking!

Let's celebrate the new league year with an evening at the bluff!
Cooper Bluff is a waterfront bar, situated right on Oyster Bay Harbor. Offering a fun vibe with beautiful views, this surely will make a great backdrop for the JLLI ladies to socialize! Cooper Bluff offers high tops, fire pits, picnic tables for lounging and a Food Truck is on site for munchies and drinks.

Can't wait to see you all there!

Summer Food Drive

This summer JLLI partnered with Long Island Volunteer Center and Long Island Cares for a Summer Food Drive in honor of Harry Chapin at Bethpage State Park!

The food donated at this food drive is going to Long Island Cares Inc.-The Harry Chapin Food Bank which he founded. It is a nonprofit organization that has multiple locations across Long Island that receives and distributes food to Long Islanders in need.  They serve over 800 food pantries and soup kitchens across Long Island. They ramped up distribution particularly in response to Superstorm Sandy and as a result of the current pandemic. The donations from this drive are headed to their Essential Market in Bethpage, a free supermarket that ensures the dignity of people who come there allowing them to “shop” for what they need for themselves and their families. Summer is a particularly hard time of year for food drives and children cannot access the free school lunch program.
You can still support the food drive virtually by sharing this link or by purchasing directly through the link here as well!
Check out this great article about the food drive and see the mention JLLI received!
