Finding a New Home:

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day and Tai Chi in the Park

As you know, Water Tiger ended our 17-year collaboration with the Village of Patchogue at the end of the summer and weve been working to find a new collaborator to host both events for 2018 and beyond.

Supervisor Edward P. Romaine, Town of Brookhaven, has voiced his commitment to seeing our two events, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day (the last Saturday in April) and Tai Chi in the Park (four Saturdays at the beginning of summer and four Saturdays at the end of summer), continue. We are currently working with the Town of Brookhavens Department of Parks & Recreation to secure locations for both events.

Though nothing is finalized, we can say that weve reached a tentative agreement to hold Tai Chi in the Park in Medfords Peppermint Park (2215 Route 112). We are still reviewing possibilities for World Tai Chi & Qigong Day.

As our efforts continue, we will keep you informed, here and on our Facebook page, as to any additional progress we make.
