Staten Island Welcomes Our Heroes – May 19th, 2012

AMVETS Post 917 of SI is organizing its 3rd annual Staten Island Welcomes Our Heroes event on May 19th.  I am writing to you to ask that you help us get the word out to fellow Staten Islanders who may wish to attend and to Thank You for your support last year.

The Post hosts a weekend for 6 to 8 US wounded soldiers here on SI & at ground zero in Manhattan.  We are asking Staten Islanders to come out on May 19th when the soldiers arrive by lining Richmond Ave from  Costco to Barnes & Noble to watch and wave as the motorcade escorts the soldiers to the SI Hilton.

I have attached a letter as well as a flyer which describes the event.  It would be very much appreciated if you could post these in a common area for all to see, ask others to attend or make announcements as a reminder.

Please help us make this an extraordinary event in honor of these very much deserving troops!!

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks so much,
Mardel Black
