LONG ISLAND, NY – Lindenhurst residents, the Snyder family, celebrated the pure joys of summer with The Fresh Air Fund and were among the winners of The Fresh Air Fund’s 2015 Photo Contest.
All winners were selected from the hundreds of pictures sent in by volunteer host families across the Northeast, reflecting the memorable experiences they shared with their New York City visitors this past summer. Categories include “Laketime Fun”, “Summer Siblings”, “By the Beach”, and “Fresh Air Foodies”.
