The Mineola-Garden City Rotary recently honored Althea Robinson with its 2016 Community Service Award for her 39 years of service to the Village of Garden City. She served as executive director of the Garden City Chamber for 39 years, as well as being a board member of the Garden City Foundation, a long-standing Rotarian and member of the Nassau Council of Chambers, Eastern Property Owners’ Association and the Garden City High School Business Department.
The packed house at the Garden City Country Club included her family and friends, present and past mayors, fellow Rotarians, business community members and friends. It was a beautiful evening of well-deserved accolades, citations and appreciation for an amazing woman who integrally shaped the Village of Garden City.
