Sgt. Bilski on serving his country & local community
Memorial Day Weekend is a time for us to remember our fallen U.S. soldiers and to honor the brave men and women who daily serve our country on the front-lines, including those within our local communities.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Sgt. Mike Bilski who is an active military member of the NY State Guard and US Volunteers. He is an E4 Specialist (Communications) and E5 Sargent (Military Honor Guard). In addition to serving within both of these esteemed military organizations, Sgt. Bilski is also a chaplain and holds a variety of roles within the East Coast Car Association (ECCA) and likes to keep himself busy by engaging with the local Queens community through his passion for service and classic cars.
We are excited to announce that on June 30th, Forest Park Carousel will be hosting an ECCA fundraiser for St. Mary's Children's Hospital, featuring an awesome display of classic cars around the Carousel, fun rides and games, and more!
