Years after a newsworthy back and forth argument involving elderly Koreans, McDonald’s workers and police officers, the Flushing seniors of the Korean American Patriot Association of Greater New York (KAPA-GNY) set aside the past and awarded their local McDonald’s with a plaque of appreciation.  

The award was in recognition of the restaurants hospitality and welcoming environment for the Korean senior veteran groups members and local Korean seniors. Jae Hee Shim, Chairman of KAPA-GNY and a retired Republic of Korea Army LTC, commented that, “Every time we come here, it’s very comfortable. Our seniors are very appreciative and thankful to everyone at the restaurant.”

Between 10 to 11 a.m., members of the KAPA-GNY, elected officials and community leaders congregated to the McDonald’s at 30-01 Stratton Street, Flushing, NY, Wednesday, Aug. 2. The owner of the Flushing McDonald’s, Jack Bert, was even awarded his own special plaque.

Jack Bert thanked the Korean American Patriot Association of Greater New York for recognition in the effort the McDonald’s on Stratton puts in to provide a community and family restaurant where locals can come into to “have a cup of coffee and relax”.
