We are celebrating our 193rd Anniversary. God in His infinite mercy has led us on this journey from our humble but proud beginnings in 1898 from Union Avenue in Corona, New York, to 95-02 32nd Avenue in East Elmhurst, New York to our present location one block away at 95-18 Northern Boulevard, Jackson Heights, New York.
To God be the Glory. Great things He has done!
