You should know that I am still in the hospital, incommunicado and out of touch, as I recuperate from knee replacement surgery – but I am breaking my silence to let everyone know about this year’s Morrison Avenue Family Festival that will be held on Saturday, August 18th.
You should also know that the Morrison Avenue Family Festival is a day when families from all over the Bronx and New York City can come to enjoy a day of free music, free entertainment, free popcorn and cotton candy, free inflatable moon bounces and many games for the children.
I'd like to invite you all to bring your children - ages 1 through 9 - to join us on Saturday, January 8th at 12noon for our Three Kings Celebration at PS 5 located on 149th Street and Jackson Avenue. The first 500 children who attend will receive a backpack filled with school supplies and a toy.on Saturday
