Dear Local Representatives, Colleagues and Friends of AALDC:
Thank you to all of the community members who came out Tuesday night to our Annual Atlantic Avenue Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony and Party. It was a celebration to remember and we should all be very proud of Brooklyn and our local communities of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill for lighting up the night in holiday spirit.
For those who were unable to attend this event, we hope to see you at one of our 2014 events!
Thank you to local Public School 38, Dancewave and Rolie Polie Guacamole for the wonderful performances.
A special thanks to our local representatives, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and Councilman Stephen Levin for attending and supporting AALDC events. Thank you to NYPD’s 84th Precinct for their presence and Captain Maximo Tolentino’s continued support.
A BIG thank you to Santa for coming and spreading your holiday cheer! He put a joyful smile on all faces, both adults and children!
