Queens, NY, July 25, 2011 – Before the summer passes all too quickly, NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D-Queens), a member of the Senate’s Veterans, Homeland Security & Military Affairs Committee, wants to invite all local veterans and their families to his 3nd Annual Veterans’ Barbeque, outside his Howard Beach office.  Save the date:  

Saturday, August 20 – Veterans’ BBQ

160th Avenue & 102nd Street, Howard Beach

Noon to 3 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, Vietnam Veterans, to be their special guests, so they can cook and serve them BBQ fare and host a fun, relaxing neighborhood event outdoors.  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 August 18, for preparation purposes.

“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,” explained Addabbo.
