Outreach to the Community
Establishing strong communications with District members and the community at large is a priority of GatewayJFK. Throughout the formation process, the SpringJam Block Association has provided leadership representing the residents of the District situated between Rockaway Boulevard and 146th Avenue from 157th to 159th Streets. Spring Jam’s executive officers (Kim Lawton –President, Louise Torbert – Treasurer, Veronica Hicks –Secretary) are also Board members of GatewayJFK. In a mutual decision, the annual SpringJam “block party” was expanded to promote and introduce GatewayJFK and its mission.
