Community Kindness Ensures Kick-A-Thon Success
It is the annual fundraising event for the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Police Activity League Martial Arts Program, which takes place each year on Oyster Fest Saturday. However, this year, due to other festival-related activities, the OB-EN PAL Program had to find an alternate site for this event. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of Chief Frank Ozol and the members of the Atlantic Steamer Fire Company, the students were able to kick the morning away in the meeting room of the firehouse. Chief Ozol said, "Several of our members have children who have been or who are in this (the martial arts) program, and we were all happy to help in any way we could." Sifu Andrew Hall, Instructor of the OB-EN program stated, "The Atlantic Steamers always seem to be doing something to help the community through fundraising events and their everyday dedication as volunteers. We really appreciate the support of the officers and membership."
