Bleakley Platt to Sponsor Yonkers Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast

February 2009

Bleakley Platt is once again proud to sponsor The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast which will be held this year on Tuesday, February 24th. This year’s event will feature a presentation on the recently re-opened Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum after a two-year renovation and restoration project. The interior of the ship has been completely renovated with new exhibits which allow visitors to see never before seen “behind the scenes” areas, like the Foc’sle and crew quarters, allowing a new perspective as to what life was really like aboard the Intrepid.

Built in 1943, the USS Intrepid and her crew have a distinguished history of service including tours of duty in both World War II and Vietnam. The Intrepid also served as NASA’s primary recovery vessel before being retired in 1974. In 1982, the Intrepid Museum was opened to the public and has now received more than 10 million visitors.

The Networking Breakfast will be held at The Royal Regency Hotel located at 165 Tuckahoe Road in Yonkers. Reservations for this event can be made by contacting The Yonkers Chamber of Commerce at (914) 963-0332.
