Birch Community Services Annual BBQ
On Saturday, individuals from Birch’s Burnett Street, Flatlands, East 53rd Street, and 94th Street residences; staff; friends; and families turned out for music, games – and food – for the Birch Family Services annual BBQ at Canarsie Park in Brooklyn.
“Everyone had a lot of fun.” said Peter-Gaye Powell, Operations Coordinator for the four-resident cluster. “We hope to make it bigger and better each year!”
