I hope you and your families are continuing to do well as the City continues to open up and energize.
Today on the occasion of the Hispanic Heritage Month, I hosted a Luncheon and honored community leaders and activists who make a difference in our community and inspire others daily.
I am glad to have co sponsored the Columbus Day Parade in Morris Park and line up Italian American flags in our streets. Thank you to all who marched as well as the organizing committee for organizing this celebration of Italian Americans and their contributions to community and our City.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will be hosting our second free mammogram event in City Island in partnership with the American Italian Cancer Foundation. I hope you take advantage and get screened.
I am happy to continue the tradition of bringing Free S.A.T. Prep Courses at the Bronx House. Families and College bound students should benefit from these courses and inquire and register with the Bronx House at (718) 792-1800.
