Last Friday evening, my wife Barbara and I along with my fellow trustees and their spouses, had the pleasure of attending the kickoff of a new Garden City nonprofit 501c (3) charitable organization entitled “The Friends of Garden City Arts, Parks and Recreation.” This is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting village programs in the arts and parks. Its fundraising will provide alternative funding for village programs and special projects and events so that every resident will benefit from its endowment.
This is an organization of, by, and for village residents of all ages and we are very fortunate to count them as our neighbors.
We wish them success with this worthwhile undertaking.
