As a way to honor veterans and their service to the country, State Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr. is once again hosting his annual Veterans BBQ in Howard Beach on Saturday, Sept. 9. 

This year’s event will take place at the Howard Beach Motor Club, located at 59 Russell St., from noon to 2 p.m. 

Veterans and a guest are invited to enjoy the free food, music, and drinks donated by several local businesses and organizations. Seating is limited for this event and reservations are required.

As a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs, Addabbo has been hosting this free event since he was elected to the senate.

“I like to say that every day is Veterans’ Day, and as a small token of our appreciation for their service, my office team and I host this free BBQ for our vets each year,” Addabbo said. “Since entering the Senate in 2009, I have wanted to honor our veterans and thought a great way to do that would be throwing them a party of their own. Every year dozens of veterans come to the BBQ and they all have a great time. It is my honor to host this event, and I would like to thank the Howard Beach Motor Club and all of our community sponsors for making this special day.”

Veterans are welcome to attend the event and may bring one guest with them. To make the necessary reservations, call Addabbo’s office at 718-738-1111.
