Queensborough Special Programs Committee
FOSTERING COMMUNITY SPIRIT IN QUEENSBOROUGH SINCE 1979
In addition to annual events, the QSPC undertakes Special Projects, with the goal of engaging residents on matters that are important to the community.
Whether you're interested in a specific event, volunteering as part of the QB cafe or joining our Executive, there are plenty of ways for you to give back to your community through the QSPC. Not only are our events fun, but you'll make friendships to last a lifetime!
The Queensborough Special Programs Committee hosts a variety of events throughout the year to serve the community.
The 2019 event calendar is now complete, wrapping up with our Lighting of the Fire Hall and Christmas Family Dinner festivities. Thank you so much to the Community members who came out to participate, as well as those who were involved with Deck the Halls and the Breakfast with Santa at the QCC. Special thanks go to volunteer youth from Queensborough Middle School, who have been so incredibly helpful in the success of these events!
The QSPC Executive would also like to especially thank Pat Emmerson and Marilyn Pitt for their incredible hard work and dedication to Queensborough over the years. Both women have been integral parts of the Executive and several of our committees. We are so grateful for everything you've both done for our Community!
