Jerry J. Helfer Memorial Food Truck Rodeo

By on June 12, 2018

Members of the Town of Greece Youth Board hosted the Jerry J. Helfer Memorial Food Truck Rodeo on June 10th at the Greece Town Hall Campus. This was held in conjunction with the first Greece Summer Concert Series featuring a spectacular performance by Elvis Lives!

Food Trucks that participated included local favorites Lugia’s Ice Cream, Big Al’s Empanada’s, Macarollin’, Rob’s Kabob’s, Sugary Delights, Bar-B-Que, Inc., Dave’s Fine Food, and J&S Fried Dough. Elvis Lives entertained attendees with a variety of classic songs – many of which inspired people to sing along and dance!

It was a beautiful day for a concert and a food truck rodeo, with the proceeds collected going towards the the Jerry J. Helfer Youth Engagement Scholarship. Jerry Helfer was a man of exceptional character and virtue who always exhibited kindness to anyone he encountered. Throughout his life, Jerry dedicated his time and talents to making the community a better place. One of Jerry’s first positons in public service was being a member of the Greece Youth Board. Additionally, Jerry served as Town Councilman from 1998 until 2009 and as Deputy Supervisor from January 2014 until his untimely passing in July of the same year.

The Jerry J. Helfer Youth Engagement Scholarship provides the Greece community with the opportunity to recognize a student that regularly upholds exemplary moral values, devotes time and energy into helping serve the Greece community, and consistently displays outstanding leadership skills.
