As the month of February is upon us I usually think that the snow will be arriving soon, but because of the pleasant weather we have been having this week, my thoughts turn to Spring. I will enjoy these few days of warmth as I have heard that it will be back to cold again very soon. Speaking of cold, last week for our meeting, it was cold. On Tuesday, January 29 the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation’s Annual Meeting was held   It took place at the Woodhaven Manor.  The Greater Woodhaven discussed some of our accomplishments from 2018 along with our plans for 2019 which were also outlined in our Annual Progress Report.

Copies of this report were distributed that evening. The Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation and guests at our meeting  listened as the  representatives from the Congresswoman, The Assemblyman and the Councilman spoke. Those in attendance were Julio Salazar representing  Congresswoman Velazquez, Linda Fogal representing Assemblyman Michael Miller, and Gregory Mitchell representing Councilman Robert Holden.

The 102nd Precinct also stopped by and Deputy Inspector Courtney Nilan, Commanding Officer of the 102nd Precinct spoke and introduced the 102nd Police Officers that were with her that night.  As a surprise guest Assistant Chief David Barrere, Commanding Officer of Queens Borough South addressed the audience. It was a very informative evening for those that could make it out on this cold rainy night. If you would like to have an Annual Report, please call our office and you may request one.  On another note the Community Board # 9 will vote next week on the approval of the Street Fair slated for October 13, 2019.  We have been working on this since December of 2018 with petitions, support letters and much more.  We will let you know as soon as it is official and we are approved for another year of sun and fun at our Street Festival.  The next event scheduled is the Spring Promotion which will be held on April 13 at the Forest Parkway Plaza area. More of that to come in the March article.  Until then Happy Valentine’s Day and don’t forget the special election on February 26, 2019.  Make your vote count!  To all of our Asian friends we say, Gong Xi Fa Cai- Hope you have a wonderful New Year!!!!
