To the editor,
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, to all who participated in making the seventh annual Chamber of Commerce Festival and Street Fair such a resounding success once again!
It means so much to the Chamber to have Yorktown residents and nearby guests turn out in such great numbers to support this annual event. I especially want to thank our police department, volunteer ambulance corps, our fire department and town officials for helping make this a fun and safe event for the family and neighbors to promote our local business community. Of course, a special thank you goes out to all our vendors and our major sponsors: Yorktown News, Examiner Media, Fieldhome, 100.7 WHUD, GHP Office Realty and Lennox Hill Heart and Vascular Institute of New York. Without their cooperation and participation, it would be so much harder to put on this great event.
Thank you to Mary Capoccia and Donna Diana for their countless hours of work and planning that ensured the most successful Senior Luncheon we ever had. More than 300 seniors attended. A huge thank you goes to the following restaurants for providing a truly “gourmet” meal to our seniors: Burger King, Don Tomasso’s, Fieldhome, Frankie & Augie’Z Ristorante, Grandma’s 202 Kitchen, Jake’s Wayback Burgers, Jewel of the Himalaya, Little Sorrento, Murphy’s, New City Diner, Piatto Grill, Thyme Restaurant, Travelers Rest, Turco’s, and Yorktown Pasta and Pizza.
A special thank you goes out to Al Pisano, foreman of the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center and his men for doing such a fantastic job keeping everything clean during the event and miraculously, within two hours of closing, restoring the streets to their original use. Al, thank you again so very much.
And in conclusion, a special thank you goes to the Festival Committee! Countless meetings and hours of work ensured the success we experienced. Everyone deserves kudos, especially Chereese Hill of Events To Remember, our event planner extraordinaire!
We have already started planning the 2016 Festival and Street Fair. It will be even more exciting. We hope to see you all there.
Thank you again,
President Eric DiBartolo
Yorktown Chamber of Commerce
