Family Fridays, a favorite event for Sayville residents, kicks off tonight at The Common Ground with a program called Frogs, Bugs and Animals. Also, Sayville's own Purple Nancy will hold her Ladybug Release. Those in attendance can also meet Jason and touch and learn about his friendly Long Island animals. This event is tonight at The Common Ground at 6:30 p.m.
Also happening tonight is the Full Moon Labyrinth, sponsored by The Common Ground. The labyrinth in Sayville at the Common Ground is called the Peace Labyrinth. Built in 2003, it was designed, laid out, and financed by Marianne Fulfaro and dedicated to her parents, Carlo and Carmela Annunziato.
The labyrinth is a seven circuit, Mini-Chartres design. It is constructed of paving stones with red gravel pathways. When walking, this alternating balancing motion can calm and quiet one's body, mind and spirit often inducing a receptive state for meditation and contemplation in the center of the labyrinth. The event takes place at 8 p.m., weather permitting.
On Saturday, do some shopping at the farmer's market on the corner of Main Street and Railroad Avenue. Vendors will be there from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
