Yesterday was Family Fun Day in St. James Park. This event was sponsored by Assemblyman Victor Pichardo and State Senator Gustavo Rivera. There were information tables at the event from various New York City agencies, and neighborhood non-profit organizations. The photos should tell the rest of the story.
Above - You can see some of the informative tables that were at St. James Park.
Below - State Senator Gustavo Rivera was given the task of handing out ticket stubs for a free backpack to the hundreds of children as you see in this photo. The good senator was also able to tell parents of his work in the community.
