I hope that it lasts so you can do all your Christmas or Hanukah shopping right here from your caring store and business owners in the WBID from Dexter Court to 100th Street. Our stores and businesses contribute their money to give us all of the events that make Woodhaven unique and special.
So shop on your avenue, and stop by one of our many restaurants and have a nice lunch to fuel your energy.
Look for homemade decorations from St. Thomas Academy, P.S. 97, P.S. 60, and P.S. 66 on the small trees and bushes in Forest Parkway Plaza, Sal's Pizzeria, and Avenue Diner.
Last week, I forgot to thank GWDC member Paul Rudolph, Jr., who along with his dad Paul Rudolph, Sr. of Walker Funeral Home, assists Steve Esposito and I with our tree and menorah lighting every year.
Please leave your porch lights on. It just costs pennies to add safety to your street.
Our Christmas trees and Hanukah lights all have a feeling of warmth, especially this year when Hanukkah begins on Christmas Eve. Let us hope that our children will grow safely and may the happy feelings be with them always.
If you are planning on getting a pet as a gift for Christmas, Jamie and I entreat you to get a shelter pet from Bobbi and the Strays. Call (718) 326-6070 for more information and save a life for Christmas.
May God bless our disabled veterans, may God bless our armed forces, especially those who will not be home for Christmas, may God bless our NYPD and all police officers everywhere, and may God bless our America, the best country in the world.
