Residents of the Catholic Charities Msgr. Thomas Campbell Senior Apartments in Astoria, Queens recently enjoyed an afternoon of fun in the sun with an outdoor BBQ complete with delicious food and great music. Residents enjoyed yummy chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, japchae, gimbap, assorted salads, rice and beans, fresh fruit and more. One of our very talented residents entertained the group with Elvis cover songs and more. Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens Community Outreach Services was also on hand, helping where needed to make the day very special for all!
