Flushing Civic Meeting

Dear Friends And Neighbors,

Happy New Year, one and all!

As you know, our civic seeks to provide you the opportunity to get to know our local and citywide elected officials in a relaxed, close-to-home setting. And so, we start our year off tremendously with a rescheduled visit from our City Comptroller, Flushing’s own John C. Liu, who will discuss local issues here, in his own Queens backyard, touch on salient points of his recent State of the City Address, and answer your questions. (Mr. Liu is also expected by many to be making a major announcement right around the date of our upcoming meeting.)

Furthermore, you’ll get to know two newly-elected state assemblymembers, both brand new to the political arena. Come meet Assemblymembers Nily Rozic and Ron Kim. You’ll surely be impressed by their youthful energy and exuberance, and their eagerness to serve us to their best abilities. Join us as Nily and Ron begin new careers in elected public office.

Our meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 6 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at New York Hospital Queens’ Lang Auditorium; enter the hospital’s main entrance at 56-45 Main Street. Thanks go to our meeting sponsors: New York Hospital Queens, TD Bank and Zhong Hua Supermarket.

If you haven’t already signed up for current membership in our civic, please return your application to the address printed at the bottom of this letter, or just mail us your name and address. The easiest method, of course, is to e-mail us your info at qhcivic@aol.com, with “Membership” in the subject line. Once again there is no membership fee for the 2012-2013 year due to the generosity of Councilmember Peter Koo. Existing members: Please renew now.

We’ll again be marching in Flushing’s Lunar New Year Parade. It’s enormous fun! And the short march around Downtown Flushing helps keep you warm. So please join us! For details, provide us your address and phone number; we’ll get back to you soon. The parade will start on Union Street and 38th Avenue at 11 a.m. on Saturday, February 16. Bring the family!

Looking forward to seeing you soon. Best regards, Donald Capalbi, President John Henry Byas, President Queensboro Hill Neighborhood Assn. University Park Tenants Council
