FRONT LINE WORKERS WALL OF HONOR

ISLAND GARDEN BASKETBALL, LIGHTNING BASKETBALL, JMF SPORTS, AND NY METROPOLITAN AAU WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF OUR FRONT LINE WORKERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND ESPECIALLY THOSE IN OUR OWN BACK YARD WHO HELP MAKE THE LONG ISLAND BASKETBALL COMMUNITY GREAT. WHETHER IT BE A NURSE, DOCTOR, POLICE OFFICER, FIREFIGHTER, EMT, SANITATION WORKER, TEACHER, TRANSIT WORKER, DELIVERY DRIVER, CASHIER AT A SUPERMARKET, ETC, ALL OF THESE GREAT PEOPLE CONTINUE TO PUT THEMSELVES IN HARMS WAY BY CHOOSING TO DO SOMETHING THAT WAS VERY NORMAL A FEW SHORT WEEKS AGO WHICH IS SIMPLY TO SHOW UP TO WORK.

WE WANTED TO TAKE A MOMENT TO POINT OUT SOME SPECIFIC PEOPLE FROM VARIOUS TOWNS AND BASKETBALL ORGANIZATIONS ALL ACROSS LONG ISLAND WHO MANY OF US WALK PAST EACH DAY ON OUR WAY TO COACH OR WATCH OUR KIDS PLAY IN SUPER LEAGUE GAMES, TOURNAMENTS, OR A SIMPLE TEAM PRACTICE. IF THIS CRISIS HAS TAUGHT US ANYTHING, IT IS THAT OUR COMMUNITY IS A FAMILY THAT WE SHOULD ALL BE PROUD TO BE APART OF AND CONTINUE TO LEARN ABOUT THROUGH THE GOOD AND BAD.

SO THANK YOU FROM OUR HEARTS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO THE KIDS, EACH OTHER, AND TO US THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. WE HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE BACK ON THE COURTS VERY SOON.
