12/27/2011: What are you thankful for? Creative Celebration

Dear Participant,

Thank you for your wonderful contribution to the Thanksgiving Day Creative Celebration. In our first year, we received outstanding poems, essays, and artwork that exemplify the creativity of New York State’s young people.

The submissions received are remarkable in what they represent – showing gratitude and respect for family, friends, our troops fighting overseas, and many other important subjects and activities. I am humbled and honored to see such inspiring contributions in response to what is a deceptively difficult question: “What are you thankful for?”

(Jamaica, NY) – Senator Shirley L. Huntley (D-Jamaica), an advocate for the advancement of the elderly, will celebrate Senior Week in Queens with an “Oldies But Goodies Luncheon”, marking her 5th annual event. Invited elders from the community will eat, dance and fellowship as they enjoy an afternoon out.
