Queens, NY, September 13, 2010 – With the end of summer fast

2nd Annual Veterans’ Barbeque.
Save the date:
Saturday, September 25 – Veterans’ BBQ

Noon to 4 PM
The Senator and his staff reached out to the various Queens chapters
of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Knights of Columbus,
Catholic and Jewish War Veterans, to be their special guests, so they
could cook and serve them BBQ fare and host one more outdoor neighborhood
event. Important: in order to know how many are expected, those planning
to attend must R.S.V.P. by calling Senator Addabbo’s Howard Beach
district office at 718-738-1111 no later than September 23, for
“This is just our small way of saying ‘Thank you for your
service’ -- not only to our local veterans but also to their families.
All nobly served our country in years past and of course, many brave
volunteers are currently doing so in Afghanistan and Iraq. We should
show our veterans that we appreciate their dedication and commitment
not just on Veterans Day but every day of the year,” Addabbo concluded.
