The Rockaway Republicans shared with some 200 Queens Republicans a great afternoon and wonderful tribute to America’s 16th President. This was the 138th such Lincoln tribute here in Queens, sponsored – as always – by the Queens Village Republican Club. Here’s a quick rundown of QVRC’s extraordinary guest speakers.
No better perpetuation of Lincoln’s ‘better angels of our nature’ can there be without a strong and solid K-12 education and Maspeth High’s Principal, Khurshid Abdul-Mutakabbir, described to us the classical education and curriculum he has instituted. He took the same education in Boston beginning at St. Mary’s, the very same grade school his mother and grandmother attended, and pitched the idea to NYC’s Board of Education and was chosen to run the new Maspeth High…awesome stuff for a school of immigrant and naturally born kids: our better angels.
It was a sold-out crowd for the 138th Anniversary Lincoln Dinner that was a spectacular success and an unforgettable experience for all of the nearly 200 attendees. The event was a unique combination of inspiring speakers, patriotic friends from all nationalities and backgrounds and Antun’s world famous cuisine and catering. The most significant upshot was the inspiration to be optimistic about the future of America and the motivation to take action on our founding principles.
