20XX ART & ESSAY/POETRY CONTEST

Awards Ceremony Friday May 2X, 20XX

Committee Co-Chairs: Carole Cox - Rochelle Nechin

Barbara Quigley Barba was a longtime Oak Park resident who co-chaired the parade's Art & Essay Contest beginning in 1997. A kindergarten teacher in the Elwood School District in Suffolk County, this devoted wife and mother managed to be a tireless volunteer with the Lions Club, Queens Flag Day Committee and the Parade. Barbara never lost focus. She said her favorite memory was, "Having my boys and watching them grow up." When asked what was her biggest challenge, she replied, “People need to remember that Memorial Day is more than just the unofficial first day of summer.” Barbara passed away in a tragic home accident on August 25, 2016 and she is sorely missed by everyone who knew her.

We memorialize her in our contest.
