Glenn P. Nocera President Brooklyn Tea Party.
The Brooklyn Tea Party would like to thank our members who Donated to our First Annual Toy Drive to help, The Secret Sandy Claus Project. We raised over 175 Toys. We especially would like to thank our co-sponsor E&J Boutique who donated well over 125 toys. The Secret Sandy Claus project is also the Official Delivery Arm of the NYC Marines Toys For Tots. they collect thousands of toys every year, recruit volunteers to dress up as Santa’s and Elves, and make personal home deliveries of toys to children in need all across the 5 boroughs of NYC— children affected by Hurricane Sandy, childhood cancer, poverty, physical or mental disabilities and/or domestic violence. Families who want to request toys and personal visits register through there website. They then create delivery routes, coordinate volunteers and assign Santa’s and Elves to make deliveries to children every day in December, leading up to Christmas.
Thank You all once again.
Glenn P. Nocera President Brooklyn Tea Party.

Join The Brooklyn Tea Party for our Next Meeting on Sunday 9/17/17 from 3-5 PM with Guest Speakers Whitney Moore, and American Legion Commander John E. Lonergan III of the American Legion Post 1636.
Our meeting will start off with Commander John E. Lonergan III of the American Legion Post 1636 (193 9th Street Bklyn) Who will be talking about how their building which was previously a church and is their believe that the lot to their right of their Building is the site of a burial ground for Militia members who fought the British while George Washington made his escape over the river. In addition, they believe that this is also the final resting place for several slaves. They are concerned because a new school is scheduled to be constructed in what they feel should be sacred grounds. At one point the developer of said property hired a bulldozer then claimed that nothing was discovered. Since this forgotten burial ground could be almost 250 years old, a deeper ground scan should take place prior to development. They suggest that a ground penetrating radar survey should be performed as soon as possible. We at the Brooklyn Tea Party urge the City of New York to step in and investagate this forgotten Burial ground of our fallen patriots that made this country who we are today. We invite all members of the press to join us in this effort in preserving our history
After Commander Lonergan our featured Guest Speaker will speak
