the Hon. Yvonne Reddick; District Leader and District Manager of CB12 and Lawrence J Cormier; Entrepreneur. Ms Reddick received recognition from the People of Hollis Park Gardens. Yvonne was pro-active in helping secure multi-million dollar funding for the upgrade of wells 38 and 38a. The wells are located at Jamaica Avenue and 193rd Street. Ground water pumped by the wells had been contaminated with MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ethanol), a carcinogenic anti-ping gasoline additive. The new facility under construction is state-of-the-art This was a tremendous victory for the People of Hollis Park Gardens who rallied together and lobbied the government. Mr Cormier is a noted area businessman. His name is synonymous with Ebony Oil Company. Ebony Oil dominated the home heating oil industry in Queens in the 1970's. Mr. Cormier is also a founder of United Black Men of Queens and its former President
