Members of the Howard Beach Kiwanis Club grabbed their shovels and other gardening tools and got their hands dirty earlier this year in an effort to beautify the neighborhood still struggling to fully recover from Hurricane Sandy.

Taking their skills — and a bed of pansies and marigolds — to a bare patch of dirt around a tree near the intersection of Cross Bay Boulevard and the Belt Parkway, Kiwanians Frank Ladone, left, Dino Bono, the Rev. Ronald Joseph and his son, and Howard Beach Kiwanis President Ed Tudisco, stepped in to help add a piece of beauty to the neighborhood.

The small garden sits only steps from the Bernard Fineson Center, which is scheduled to open as a senior housing facility run by Catholic Charities later this year, and is located in an area heavily trafficked by both cars and pedestrians near the confluence of Howard Beach, Lindenwood and Ozone Park.

Welcome to the discussion.
