The event will be held from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 28 at the Western Beef Parking lot located at 322 Nassau Road in Roosevelt.

“I am pleased to once again host this wonderful community event with the Roosevelt Family Empowerment Committee to bring services and resources to the Roosevelt community,” said Senior Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby. “ I appreciate Applebee’s generous support of the event, and I’m certain residents will enjoy the array of delicious food which they will be providing.”

The community event, sponsored by Applebee’s, is intended to provide educational, spiritual, health-care and occupational resources to the members of the Roosevelt community.  In addition, residents will enjoy various types of entertainment and activities intended to engage our youngest and oldest residents alike.

In addition, Senior Councilwoman Goosby will be honoring two Roosevelt residents who have done outstanding work in the community. The residents, Lillian Coggina-Watson, a retired principal at Ulysses Byas Elementary School, and Chukwuma Ukwu, a Roosevelt High School graduate, “Heart of a Giant” award recipient and a collegiate scholar, will receive Town of Hempstead Certificates of Recognition.

“I look forward to meeting residents at Roosevelt’s Family Fun Day,” concluded Senior Councilwoman Goosby. “Neighbors will benefit from receiving valuable information while mingling with each other in celebration of our wonderful community.”
