Legislator Murphy to Recognize “Homes for Heroes” Volunteers

 Tuesday, December 17th, 2013, 6:30 pm - Legislature Chambers

 New City, NY (December 13, 2013) – Rockland County Legislator John Murphy will honor several Rocklanders who volunteered time and services to assist in the completion of phase one of Homes for Heroes, two four-unit garden-style rental apartment units located on Western Highway in Tappan, NY, built specifically to house honorably discharged, disabled and displaced Veterans.


Leslie Crunden, Margaret Fitzpatrick, Carl Dornbush, Tom Micelli and Gene Wasielewski will be presented Distinguished Service Awards in recognition of their volunteer efforts to coordinate and accomplish several sizeable tasks to complete the goal of the project – comfortably appointed homes in a serene atmosphere for occupancy by some of America’s brave Veterans.


The recognition ceremony will take place prior to the meeting of the County Legislature on Tuesday, December 17th at 6:30 p.m. in the legislature’s chambers in the Rockland County Office Building, 11 New Hempstead Rd., New City, NY.  The ceremony and subsequent meeting are open to the public and attendance is encouraged.  To view the agenda for the 7 p.m. meeting of the legislature, please visit www.rocklandgov.com,  and click on “legislative agendas”.

Thanks for the press release Betsy on behalf of The Honorable Murphy. Murphy does plenty for the less fortunate and we know his team of flacks will let us know. Maybe someday we will see what he is doing on behalf of taxpayers to curb gov't spending.
