Gantry Plaza State Park
49th Avenue & Center Blvd
Hunters Point, Queens
The Hunters Point Parks Conservancy invites you, the members, friends and extended community, to attend a ceremony on Saturday, July 18th, 4:30 PM, celebrating the memory of Bill Bylewski, the late President Emeritus of Hunters Point Parks Conservancy. The event will be held in the garden at Gantry Plaza State Park (enter at 49th Avenue and Center Boulevard).
Bill was a founding member of Friends of Gantry Neighborhood Parks and devoted countless hours as a volunteer gardener and community leader to maintaining the park's beauty.
When the adjoining city park, Hunters Point South Park opened, Bill had the vision to see that one "friends group" dedicated to the unique needs of both parks would better serve the community's interest than two separate groups competing for human and financial resources. Bill took the lead in bringing together the community to make that happen.
All are invited to join in remembering and celebrating this outstanding citizen, colleague. leader and friend on a beautiful afternoon in Bill's favorite place.
