June 23rd, 2007 the New Hyde Park Fire Department Termites Drill team held
their charity drill.
here to see photos of this event.
The day began with a beautiful sunrise and the promise of a picture perfect
day. That promise was definitely not broken. Joey’s
Friends Too was the recipient of the funds raised at that drill. The day was
both wonderful for Joey’s Friends and the countless number of participants
and spectators. The Drill Teams compete in a number of
astonishing feats that seem almost impossible. When you watch these men and
women perform them it seems as choreographed as a beautiful ballet and made
to look just as exciting. The next time you are driving
and you hear the roar of the engines coming from the track at
, take a few minutes and watch the teams practice. It is
truly amazing. Of course make sure you ask when the next
competition is and go and support your town's drill team. Remember
they are volunteer firemen first, and this is a very simple and fun way to
support and thank them.
Thank you seems like a very small two words to describe all the
wonderful teams and friends that helped to make June 23rd such a
great financial success. First and foremost we need to
welcome Capt. Neil Brogan and the entire NHP Termite Drill Team to the
Joey’s Friends Family!! Dominic Gagnon, who really is
one of Joey’s Friends, this was your dream and we are so proud of you for
following it. Councilman Angelo Ferrara, thank you for helping us to be able
to put all the pieces together. Thank you to Anthony
Bonomo and PRI for your wonderful donation of the T-Shirts we sold at the

great food that you served all day; thank you Baldo, Linda and especially
Christina. Ken Meyer and Clare Rose, your donation went a
long way! Ashley Byrne -- thanks for stepping
