The Sterling, Bethpage, NY

The chapter held its annual Awards Dinner on November 14th 2011. President John Puglisi welcomed all attending members and invited guests. A moment of silence was observed in remembrance of the passing of Dennis Botsaris, First Vice-President and long time member of the chapter.

Invocation given by Secretary-Treasurer Joe Danbusky.

Sportmanship Recognition:



Chapter Awards:



Motions were made to make a donation to the Lustgarten Foundation in the name of Dennis Botsaris and re-name the chapter service award in his honor. Both motions passed unanimously.

The current terms for all executive board officers (including secretary/treasurer) expire on December 31, 2012. As suggested several years ago, the slate for candidates for officer positions will be presented to the membership at the Annual Rules Meeting in August 2012 to ensure maximum participation. Elections will be held at the following scheduled business meeting. Steve Lewin is chairing the officer slate committee and will accept nominations for the Executive Board from now until the Annual Rules Meeting.

The food was good, the drinks were good, the company was good; a relaxing time was had by all.

Best wishes for the coming Holidays!

Respectfully submitted

Joe Danbusky, Secretary-Treasurer
