Tucked away on the west side of the small town of Broad Channel in the middle of Jamiaca Bay is a narrow, dead end, street that goes by the name of West 12th Road. Those of us who live there know that the nice part about living in a small town is that when you are not quite sure what is going on, someone else always does!

Convention luncheon.
The awards, according to BC Auxiliary President Janet O’Hare, were based on community service, children and youth involvement, membership, support of the Empire Girls State program, their work with the veterans at the St. Albans Home, including their Christmas party and “our outstanding efforts in the fight against cancer.”
The awards were given by the American Legion Auxiliary’s Department of New York.
O’Hare wanted to “thank our Broad Channel community for supporting us at our brunches and other fundraising activities.”
