State Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr.’s (D-Howard Beach) annual veterans barbecue is back.

The cookout is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Howard Beach Motor Club, at 59 Russell St., in Howard Beach, the senator’s office announced last week.

Addabbo has been sponsoring the vets barbecue from the first year he was elected to the state Senate 10 years ago.

Local businesses donate most of the food and refreshments for the meal and the Motor Club lends its facilities free of charge for the benefit of the vets.

All veterans are invited and are permitted to bring a guest.

But because space is limited, the event requires reservations. Those planning on attending can call Addabbo’s office at (718) 38-1111.

The barbecue will run from noon to 3 p.m.

“Every year dozens of veterans come to the barbecue and they all have a great time,” Addabbo said in a prepared statement.

“It is my honor to host this event.”
