The chapter held its annual Awards dinner which, this year, commemorated the 50th anniversary of the chapter. The dinner was well attended by members and guests. President John Puglisi after a cocktail hour called the meeting to order at 8:05 PM. John welcomed members and guests and turned the floor over to Secretary-Treasurer and unofficial "padre" Joe Danbusky for the invocation.

After everyone was seated, First Vice-President Randy Vogt  presented award plaques to the Sportsmanship winners schools: 4 Year Men: City College of New York, 4 year Women: SUNY Old Westbury, 2 year schools (combined programs): Nassau Community College Women.

John Puglisi and Executive Vice-President Steve Lewin then presented the chapter awards to member officials based upon popular vote of peers:

All presentations having been made, everyone in attendance enjoyed a delicious meal and the camaraderie of fellow officials.
