LI Supports Operation Yellow Ribbon

The USTA Eastern Section and Long Island Region joined with the USTA National office in Operation Yellow Ribbon, to say, "so long" to our deploying neighbors. The Yellow Ribbon events are held around the state by the New York Guard to help transition military personnel and their families and to make deployment less ominous for all. This year the USTA joined with the N.Y. Guard to provide tennis lessons to the children while their parents attended informational sessions and seminars. The children were also given free 10-and-under memberships as well as gifts and prizes. Bill Mecca, USTA Eastern Long Island tennis service representative, coordinated this event.
