The WRHVAC To Be Honored Friday, September 23rd


The Woodhaven – Richmond Hill Volunteer Ambulance Corp, now in its’ 46th year of operation, will be honored by the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association at its’ annual dinner on Friday, September 23rd, which will be held at Joe Abbraciamento on Woodhaven Boulevard.  The WRHVAC will be inducted into the Woodhaven Hall of Fame — and accepting on behalf of the WRHVAC will be Kathy Sexton-Dalby and Kelly Sexton — along with their mom Patricia Sexton —

Though there were many rough patches over the years, the volunteers of the WRHVAC have always somehow managed to survive — a fire, a roof collapse, a flood — the WRHVAC survived them all to provide care for their community and a rich training ground for young caregivers.  They offer First Aid classes, EMT classes — that they have managed to keep an all-volunteer organization up and running these many decades is a remarkable accomplishment.

They also serve as role models to a younger generation of residents of Woodhaven.  And for that, and everything else that they do, the Woodhaven – Richmond Hill Volunteer Ambulance Corp will be honored, Friday September 23rd at Joe Abbraciamento.  The doors open at 7:00 PM and there will be a 4 course meal (including beer and wine) — a door prize, raffles, a live DJ and dancing.  Tickets are $65 each and can be ordered by calling 718-296-3735 (if no one answers, leave a message)  — or you can order tickets online and pay by credit card by clicking here.

We chope you’ll consider coming out to honor the WRHVAC and to also support the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association, which you can read more about here.

    Congratulations on your “46” years of service. I joined the Ambulance Corp. in 1968 and drove the first new 1969 Cadillac Ambulance to many calls on my Thursday night shift from 5 PM until 12 PM..Jack Nicholson was also on the Thursday night crew. We moved to NJ in 1973 and I have been on the Montvale Fire & Rescue Squad for the last 36 years…
    Best of Luck for the next “46” years… and thanks for your service.
    Sincerely, Marty Gallagher

    Marty ,
    You probably worked with my dad ” Timothy Sexton” ….I only knew Jack Nickleson from when I was a kid. But , I am now the president of the Corp and have been the President for now for 8 years. I have been a member since 1990 and this is truly an honor for me to be part of this award.
    Thank you ,
    Kathy Sexton-Dalbey
