THIRD NATIONAL PUBLIC SAFETY HONOR DAY
The English Language’s two most powerful words are ‘THANK YOU’ and none deserves them more-so than the men and women who leave their homes and loved ones 24/7 to protect ours 24/7.
On Tuesday, December 5, 2018, Bronx Community 9 residents, schools, businesses and houses of worship shall join Community Board 9, 43rd Precinct Council, Elected Officials, Adopt-A-Friend, Bangladeshi American Community Council, Al Shaibi Community Center, Peace December, New York Peace Coalition, Parkchester Jame Masjid, Islamic Cultural Center of North America, Parkchester Times and their partners and sponsors in hosting their Third Annual National Public Safety Honor Day at 43rd Precinct.
As in previous two occasions, we’re encouraging all New Yorkers to show love to our brave angels in uniform on that day. ‘THANK YOU’ can be expressed in many ways, including handing flowers/roses, appreciation letters, handshakes, messages of appreciation through media, social media, emails, phone calls, etc...
Let our public safety angels know how much we appreciate their sacrifices and professional services on our behalves. This acknowledgement goes a long way in cementing a greater collaborations for public safety and mutually beneficial working relations.
It is expected other community boards and precinct councils to honor their local public safety establishments likewise.
Community Board 9’ ‘Appreciation Walk’ starts at 12:00 PM from Parkchester number 6 train station via Whesterchester, Castle Hill and Story Avenues toward the 43rd Precinct. Two stops shall be made to hand ‘thank you roses to the two Fire Engines en route. A ‘thank you” public press conference takes place at the precinct upon arrival.
For schools, groups and individuals planning to participate in the ‘Appreciation Walk’, must register at www.peacedecember.org. Thank you!
