E.R. VFW honors outstanding businesswomen


Three businesswomen were honored with appreciation awards by the Robert F. Garrison VFW Post 3350 in East Rockaway recently.

Those honored were Maureen Early, senior community affairs specialist at Covanta; Michele Wachter, community liaison from Home Instead; and Denise Walsh, community liaison from Lynbrook Restorative Therapy and Nursing.

These businesses have partnered with Post 3350 to help with fundraising to offset monthly expenses, which in turn allows them to donate more to veteran’s organizations as well as other local programs. Some of the local charities that benefit from the VFW Post 3350 are the Nassau County Veterans Assistance Foundation, VFW National Home for Children, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Beacon House, McDonald House, and local food pantries.

The Robert F. Garrison VFW Post, located 164 Main St., East Rockaway, is active in the community and always looking for new members. For more information, call (516) 887-8170.
