Sunday rally at Brinckerhoff Cemetery
In collaboration with and in support of our elected officials, historic preservation organizations, agencies and individuals, we are holding a Rally & Press Conference on Sunday, May 6, 2012 at 2:00 PM pm in front of the Brinckerhoff Cemetery located at 182nd Street approx 200 feet north of 73rd Avenue in Fresh Meadows.
The purpose is to bring more awareness and rally support of our efforts for landmarking the Brinckerhoff Cemetery ahead of the Landmarks Preservation Commission scheduled public hearing set for Tuesday, May 15, 2012.
The Fresh Meadows Homeowners Civic Association (FMHCA) is at the forefront of this struggle to landmark the Brinckerhoff Cemetery and we are very appreciative of your continuing support of FMHCA’s efforts to preserve a vital and significant piece of our city’s history.
This is an urgent appeal for your participation and support. We urge all our community leaders, government and elected officials, agencies, institutions, civic associations and descendants of those who were buried at the Brinckerhoff Cemetery to support our efforts and preserve a vital part of our city’s history.
We thank you for your support and look forward to your attendance and participation at this very important rally and press conference.
With appreciation and best regards,
James Gallagher, Jr.
