Bikers (& Santa) Visit Seniors At Four Seasons

At least eight different motorcycle clubs attended the Sunday festive occasion where residents of Four Seasons were treated to their special brand of Holiday Party.

Last year, the event was called off because of snow. Members of the American Bikers Club more than made up for last year, when the snowy weather prevented them from hosting a special Holiday Party for the residents of the Four Seasons Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. This year — last Sunday, December 12 — more than 50 bikers came roaring up Rockaway Parkway en masse, greeting firefighters from Engine 257, Ladder 170 and Battalion 58 as they arrived at the facility and bringing with them gifts, goodies, entertainment and, of course, Santa Claus himself.

Santa, happily (what else?),greets one of the residents.Santa, happily (what else?),greets one of the residents.
