Some Free Things To Do This Weekend

A roundup of some free events after a hectic few weeks of holidays and shopping.

Tapped out from Christmas shopping? The "jing, jing, jingling" of Christmas you hear is just the few remaining quarters left in your front pocket? Or maybe you just want to unwind this weekend. Here's a roundup of some free events in the Sachem community you might like to know about.

Holiday Cookie Decorating

The Sachem Public Library is holding a group activity everyone can enjoy. From the library: Come and share one of the holiday season's most delicious traditions. Using fondant and royal icing, each family will decorate a dozen cookies from four popular varieties.

Date: Saturday, December 15

Time: 1-3 p.m.

Location: Children's Program Room

Holiday SoLI Concert

Also held at the library, the SoLI (Singers of Long Island) is a "collegial chamber choir featuring 24 accomplished musicians from across Suffolk County. They perform music from a wide variety of styles and cultures including madrigals, spirituals, and jazz. Selections for this special holiday concert will include works by Maeder, Hogan, Britten, Sweelinck, and Parker/Shaw."

Date: Sunday, December 16

Time: 2-3:30 p.m.

Location: Community Room A & B

Town of Brookhaven Polar Plunge

Probably not the most "relaxing" activity, but it's free and it could be fun. Join hundreds of other brave souls as they shed their clothes in mid-December and leap into the frigid waters of the Long Island Sound at Cedar Beach in Mt. Sinai.

The event will raise funds for the Special Olympics. Last year, more than 500 people attended.

So if you've got this on your "Bucket List," click on the headline for registration and details.
