Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,

Many of you have written to ask me about our dear and amazing founder Carol Brock. I’m happy to tell you that she’s on the mend and is expected to leave the hospital and enter rehab soon and then return to her home in Douglaston. As I receive any significant updates, I’ll be sure to send out bulletins to let you know her progress. Just a short time ago, Carol spoke to us at the Scholarship Dinner at City Tech and, always the visionary, she encouraged us to “think big”. I’m taking her advice to heart when it comes to all things LDNY and hope you will too.
