Councilwoman-Elect Elizabeth Crowley Celebrates Thanksgiving with the Children of the Greater Ridgewood Youth Center

Elizabeth Crowley, NYC Councilwoman-Elect for District 30 celebrated an early Thanksgiving meal with two Universal Pre-Kindergarten classes at the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council at 62-02 Myrtle Avenue in Glendale on Tuesday November 25. The children enjoyed a full meal of turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes and corn along and a glass of apple juice with a cookie for dessert.

Afterward, Bob Monahan, President of GRYC who directs the Little Stars UPK gave Ms. Crowley a tour of the facility's classrooms that serve 162 families principally from the Glendale, Ridgewood, and Maspeth communities. "The GRYC provides precious services both for youth just entering into school and for those who are entering into the workforce.
These services are invaluable and as Councilmember of the 30th CD I will work to ensure that GRYC remains a strong vibrant community center."
