The Guardian Angels have an Annual Tradition of patrolling the Blowing up of the Thanksgiving Day Balloons which takes place the nite before the parade all around the Museum of Natural History. This year they ran into former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg who is now running for the Presidency of the United States. He thanked them for their 40 yrs. of service to the people of NYC. When he was Mayor of NYC for 12 years he was our biggest supporter of the Junior Guardian’s Program in Washington Heights through his personal foundation.
A great supporter of the GA in Capetown and former Guardian Angel in Hoboken, Rob Brisner, who works with the Thanksgiving Balloon Committee gave each of our members commemorative pins from the Macy’s Day Parade.
