Annual Canarsie Community Festival Bridges The Gap
If there had been any gullies, rivers or mountains that needed to be surmounted, you can be assured they were gulfed last Sunday, when the Canarsie Bridges Community Festival was staged on St. Jude's Place behind the Hebrew Educational Society.
Featuring the P.S. 115 Glee Club, the Sesame Flyers Steel Drum Band, carnival rides, live D.J.s and even a health fair, the event promised fun, fun, fun for the whole family - and lived up to its billing.
Besides all the events, prizes were given for the winners of the Canarsie Bridges Essay Contest, where children from the community schools were to write on the topic: "Canarsie: A Caring Village."
There were two First Place winners, two Second Place winners and one Third Place winner:
First Place: Maurice Marrow and Ayah Shahin;
Second Place: Verdi Degbey and Jabari McNichol.
Third Place: Anthony Licea.
