What a welcome change, the weather has changed and is now at a tolerable temperature. The deep freeze, snow and ice is now gone, hopefully for good. We have had rain, but that we can handle. During our snowstorms or especially with Sandy, there is one dependable force that we can count on. That is our Sanitation Department. They are always there for us. If there is a monumental clean-up to be done, weather it be monsterous Sandy snowstorm or New Years at Times Square “N.Y’s Strongest” is there, under their phenomenal leader Commissioner John J. Doherty. Woodhaven is so fortunate that we have these Sanitation men and women, many who live among us here, working on our behalf.
Important Notes- Our WBID/GWDC Office has small business low interest loans available please call our Office at (718) 805-0202 or (718) 805-0760 for more information.

If you are starting a business call us for information on this as well. Recently on Jamaica Avenue, a movie “Run All Night” with Liam Neeson was filmed inside and outside of Mike’s Pub. The filming also involved our “Sam’s Deli”. It was very exciting and I have heard that it is a very good movie, watch for it to be released later this year and look for Woodhaven and Woodhavenites in some of the scenes.
I have been advised that there is a low cost mobile veterinarian clinic parked at 137-20 Cross Bay Blvd in Ozone Park across from Animal Pantry for Pets on Sundays 10 to 5 p.m.. Check it out, and then take your pet. Woodhaven has so many stores and businesses.
The GWDC still has gifts for your consideration. We have an original miniature Woodhaven flag suitable for window display. Also, the GWDC is offering a gift of the recognition of the GWDC’s accomplishment in the landmarking of the Forest Park Carousel, “the Jewel of Forest Park”. This gift being given to us by the noted and accomplished artist Constance Del Vecchio Maltese, who has contributed to us replicas of her painting of a beautiful carousel horse called the “Forest Park beauty.”
These two unique Woodhaven gifts are fundraisers that you can give to relatives or friends and are priced at $12 for the flag, and $5 for the painting of the “Forest Park beauty.”
Please call (718) 805-0202 to order either of these perfect gifts, which are a part of Woodhaven memories.
May God bless our Armed Forces, our disabled veterans and may God bless America.
