Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Posted by: The Bristal

Dear Readers,

The Bristal sponsored the take-off and landing of the last flying B29 Superfortress from WW2 in honor of our Veterans at the Air Power Museum in Farmingdale on Memorial Day weekend. Their commitment to our freedom, service and sacrifice was celebrated with an afternoon air show and refreshments. The event was fun and nostalgic for The Bristal residents and almost 200 Vets in our communities and all over Long Island. See you there next Memorial Day!
