Padavan, Aquinas Honor Society Students Celebrate Jamaica Estate's History
New York State Senator Frank Padavan (Queens), students from the Immaculate Conception School’s Aquinas Honor Society and local civic leaders joined together for the unveiling of a historical marker for Jamaica Estates. The event took place at the location of the plaque at Wexford Terrace and Midland Malls on Friday morning April 23, 2010. Padavan provided a $2,000 grant for the historical plaque after the student from the Aquinas Society undertook two years of research into the history and heritage of the Jamaica Estates community.
