from 12:00 PM to 05:30 PM
York College/community celebration, which will begin this year with a ceremony remembering the lives lost on September 11, 2001.
York’s president, Dr. Marcia V. Keizs, preceded by the playing of “Taps,” by a National Guard Reservist, from the Jamaica Armory, will open the formal program at 12:30 p.m. with remarks, a wreath-laying at the college’s flagpole on the Plaza and the call for a moment of silence to honor the day.
YorkFest features hours of free music on the Plaza of the Academic Core Building, headlined by Jamaica’s own R&B sensation Thr3e. The popular York College Big Band starts the show, followed by Harmony Music Makers, a much admired steel band.
There’ll be rides, activities and ice cream for the kids. Refreshments will be available, too.
YorkFest is a celebration of York College spirit, welcoming the relationship between the students, faculty and staff of York and the surrounding community. We look forward to seeing you there!
