North Hempstead has announced that in the spirit of the holiday season and the upcoming new year, the town will be hosting a Happy New Year’s card writing campaign thanking local veterans, soldiers wounded in action, servicemen, and servicewomen overseas.
“The Town of North Hempstead appreciates everything members of our armed forces have done, and continue to do, for our country,” said North Hemptead Town Supervisor Bosworth “We are encouraging our residents to spread some cheer by writing a card to these brave heroes. In today’s age of technology, receiving a hand-written note in the mail is a special gift, and hopefully these cards will put smiles on many faces.”
Cards should be unsealed in an envelope and can be dropped off at:
Michael J. Tully Park at 1801 Evergreen Ave, New Hyde Park – Entrance
“Yes We Can” Community Center at 141 Garden Street, Westbury – Entrance Vestibule
Town Hall 2 at 200 Plandome Road, Manhasset – Outside Town Clerk & Tax Office

Landmark on Main Street at 232 Main Street, Port Washington – Under the Jeanne Rimsky Theater awning

The Town is asking for cards to be dropped off by no later than Tuesday, December 29. For more information, please call 311 or 516-869-6311.
