Elected officials representing all parts of southeast Queens kicked off the 15th annual Senior Appreciation Month last week in Jamaica.
They announced a calendar of shows, events and cultural experiences hosted through their offices throughout the month, including a Gospel Fest, bowling and a comedy show.
“These older men and women created the communities we all enjoy to live in and I am pleased to be able to work with my colleagues in government to support the quality of life they so deserve,” said Councilman I. Daneek Miller. “This month, our seniors will have the opportunity to socialize, exercise and be entertained with music and comedy.”
Other officials who will participate in the month include Congressman Gregory Meeks, Councilman Barry Grodenchik, Councilman Rory Lancman, State Senator Leroy Comrie, State Senator James Sanders, Assemblywoman Vivian Cook, Assemblywoman Alicia Hyndman, Assemblyman Clyde Vanel, and Assemblyman David Weprin.
