A Sincere Thanks

A Sincere Thanks

Dear Editor;

A sincere thank you goes to Barbara Larkin, President of the Belle Harbor Property Owners Association. Barbara, who with less than 48 hours notice, was able to organize a group of local residents who greeted the families of the crash victims at 131st and 133rd streets and Newport Avenue. The families were provided with drinks and snacks, all of which were donated and obtained by Barbara and the residents.

Busload after busload, these grief stricken people not only expressed their thanks for the warm welcome to Belle Harbor, but they extended their losses in he community.

Perhaps the most poignant moment came when Hector Algarroba, a spokesperson from the HHSF Foundation, indicated that they planned to build a new school in Santo Domingo and name it "The Belle Harbor" School. What a tribute!
