Respecting the past, Building the future

Ford Family Day Success at Whitey Ford Field

Last Sunday, in spite of the rain, the Friends of Whitey Ford Field (FOWFF) had their initial Ford Family Day, featuring a clean-up, painting of the bleachers, and White Ford Family members.

Quite the success, the initiatives shown by the FOWFF promise a great future for this beautiful venue. With renovation slated to start in 2019, we expect the field to be a great asset to our community and a wonderful salute to Yankee Great Whitey Ford (Born in Astoria!).

We at OANA are pleased to support FOWFF, and 2 of our board members serve on the FOWFF advisory board.

Mr. Khuzami has been a member of Community Board 1 in Astoria, NY for the last 20 years. He sits on the Zoning and parks Committees and is on the Executive Board. Previously, he served as Parks and Culture chair of Community Board 1 for eleven years and also chaired Capital and Expense priority Committee. He is a member of the Queens General Assembly and had been a panelist for grant submissions for the Queens Council on the Arts (QCA). Richard also is an officer of The Eastern Mediterranean Business Culture Alliance (EMBCA) and President of OANA.
