Goldfeder And Quinn Visit JASA
Assemblymember Phillip Goldfeder and New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn visited JASA’s Rockaway Park Senior Center located at 106-20 Shore Front Parkway. Many local seniors attended the question and answer session and had a chance to meet Assemblyman Goldfeder and Speaker Quinn. Quinn shared with the crowd her fond memories of the Rockaways as a youth. A great time was had by all. Included among the attendees were JASA’s Director of Community Based Projects Elaine Rockoff, Senior Center Director Fay Schwimmer and Senior Center As- sistant Fern Prusak.
