Rochdale Village hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the official opening of its tech center in the Jamaica Queens community. The celebratory event was sponsored by Rochdale Village Social Services, New York State Assemblywoman Vivian E. Cook and the Rochdale Village Board of Directors.
Assemblywoman Cook in concert with other local Queens officials, assisted in raising proceeds that would fund the area’s newest amenity. The new tech center features over a dozen state-of-the-art computers, printers, flat screen training monitors and Wifi capability throughout the room.
A bevy of politicians including Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and New York City Controller Scott Stringer attended the formal ribbon cutting ceremony at Rochdale Village. Assemblywoman Cook received a bouquet of flowers in appreciation for her fundraising efforts as well as a wall plaque commemorating her generous support.
Volunteers from the City University of New York Social Work program at York College in Jamaica Queens will begin providing basic computer training on the weekends to residents that live at the housing cooperative.
