FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LIBOR Proudly Supports our Veterans on Memorial Day and Every Day


The Long Island Board of REALTORS® Inc. (LIBOR) is proud to be a sponsor of the 88th Annual Little Neck-Douglaston (LND) Memorial Day Parade which took place on Monday, May 25, 2015.  The LND Memorial Day Parade is recognized as being the largest in the nation. Held annually since 1927, it is a time for citizens to come together to honor veterans and fallen heroes, and for the community to come together and celebrate. For 2015, the parade theme “Service, Valor, Sacrifice” pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.  

This sponsorship was made through the “We’re More Than Realtors®…” (WMTR) public relations campaign, which was created in 2006 by LIBOR’s Public Relations committee.  The campaign’s objective is to raise public awareness about the Realtor® efforts in our community, in addition to helping local residents buy and sell homes.  

It is also through this campaign, that Long Island Realtors® support our local heroes, giving them the opportunities offered through the Long Island Realtors® Veteran Scholarship Program, to start a career in real estate.   The program is designed to guide veteran recipients through the process of beginning a career in real estate, with a mentor on hand every step of the way.  A career in real estate offers unlimited earning potential, flexible hours and freedom to set your own pace.  If you are (or know of) a Veteran considering a career in real estate, the Long Island Board of Realtors® can help get you started.  Please visit www.LIRealtor.com  or email pr@lirealtor.com for more information. 

Members of LIBOR leadership were on hand in Douglaston on May 18, 2015 to present a check in the amount of $1,500 to the LND Memorial Day Parade Co-Chairmen at the site of where the closing ceremonies for the parade will take place.  (Pictured l-r) LIBOR Nassau Vice President Susan Helsinger, LIBOR President Laura Copersino, LIBOR past PR Committee Chair Carlos Diaz, LIBOR Treasurer David Legaz with LND Memorial Day Parade Co-Chairmen  Charles W.
