Four new Massapequa Lions members.

June 1, 2010

Last April 1st, the Massapequa Lions celebrated their 60th Anniversary at the Stuart Thomas Manor of Massapequa. The evening was pleasurable and well organized and the doo-wop music crowned the festivities. During the gala, Linda Ruggiero was awarded a President Plaque for her leadership and determination, John Diaz the PPDG Melvin Jones Award for his humanitarian work and Sue Piccolo the distinguished Knight of the Blind Award for her indefatigable efforts with cornea transportation for transplant use. Plaques for the longest membership were also awarded to George Russo and Tom Corwin for their 35+ years of affiliation with the Massapequa Lions. The association received citations and proclamations from many official sources. Among them, the ones from Senator Fuschillo, the New York State Assembly and the Town of Oyster Bay. Four new members were installed with great fanfare by the Past International President Al Brandel: the Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor John Venditto, the NYS Assemblyman Joe Saladino, the author Tiziano Thomas Dossena and the Funeral Director Lucille Romanelli-Cavalli. Mr. Saladino, President of the NYS Italian American Legislators, received, as a token of friendship from Mr. Dossena, Editorial Director of the Italian language magazine L’Idea, his recently published book Doña Flor, an Opera by Niccolò van Westerhout.
