It is sort of here. The sun is shining but an underlying chill and the wind is still with us. This does not deter the Shopping on our Woodhaven Business Improvement District. They are out and shopping on our “Everything” Avenue, and this Saturday look for the clowns painting faces, giving out balloons and free goods to the children along our Jamaica Avenue.
At Forest Parkway Plaza we will have live music and our star of the day, the Easter Bunny taking free pictures with the children. Saturday, April 12, is our WBID “Spring Promotion” with music and clowns from 1 to 4 p.m. along the avenue.
Also, look for our staff members in their WBID hats distributing free quarters on our Woodhaven’s Jamaica Avenue to parking cars, thanking them for shopping here by paying for their first 15 minutes on the parking meters.
So shop Woodhaven’s Jamaica Avenue this Saturday and every day. This promotion is a gift to our shoppers from our Woodhaven Business Improvement District.
Earned sick time is now in effect in New York City. If you employ five or more people who work more than 80 hours a year you must provide them with up to five paid sick days annually. Employees get one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked up to 40 hours or 5 days.
Companies with fewer than five employees must provide unpaid sick time. If you need any additional information on this law, please call our office at (718) 805-0202 or (718) 805-0760.
Mark your calendars for June 6 for our social event of the year, the “Spring is Here” Dinner Dance. Next week I will name our really deserving honorees. It is always a fun affair.
May God bless our leaders, may God bless our armed forces, may God bless our disabled veterans, and may God bless our America.
