Everyone needs a little help sometimes. The GWDC and WBID help our residents and store and business owners all the time, but this time I am receiving help and I know how helping hands are so appreciated.

One group that always helps and protects is our NYPD. One of the times that we can show our appreciation is at the annual National Night Out Against Crime, which took place last week.

This year the weather was beautiful warm, but not hot. This was a welcome change, because it is usually one of the hottest nights of the year. I have always felt sorry for the 102nd Precinct officers standing all night over a hot grill.

The WBID participated with a table giving our important information, free American flags, “God Bless America” flyers and American flag keychains and pins. Our staff was also able to give referrals to many attendees, and will be contacting them with information about GWDC and WBID.

There were many elected officials in attendance, and along with Deputy Inspector Deodat Urprasad, families enjoyed the hot dogs, hamburgers and delicious restaurant foods. Local Sikh residents also made tasty Indian food.

A big thank you to our 102nd Precinct Community Council, council president president Lachman Budai and his board, and the 102nd Precinct officers who worked so hard to make this evening such a success.

It was so uplifting to see residents and police officers interact so warmly on this August evening. See our WBID Facebook page for pictures of the event.

Queens District Attorney Brown has a Domestic Violence Unit hotline number available to you. Please call (718) 296-6550.

There are new rules for business recycling. Please call our office for more information.

Don't forget the free trolley on Jamaica Avenue from Dexter Court to 100th Street will take place this Saturday August 12. This is a WBID promotion, please take advantage of it.

With all the train problems we are experiencing, the city should have spent all the hundreds of thousands of dollars they are spending on Select Bus Service (SBS) on train improvements that would benefit all.

Fly our American flags proudly above all others and wear your American flag lapel pins. If you don’t have a pin, you can pick one up on by calling our office.

May God bless our leaders, may God bless our armed forces and disabled veterans, may God bless our NYPD and police officers everywhere, and may God bless America

Such everyday dysfunction by the DOT, by using up to a half a billion dollars in our own taxpayer money on this boondoggle.
