The Rotary Holiday Party Returns


Honorees to receive Community Service awards

The Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club is excited to announce that its annual holiday luncheon party will return on Monday, Dec. 13 at noon at the Garden City Hotel. All are welcome to usher in the 2021 Holiday Season with Rotary.

Rotary is equally excited to present its coveted “Community Service Award” to two businessmen—one representing a Garden City business, the other representing Mineola. Over the years, both Greg Bavaro, owner of Garden City Pizza and Tony Lubrano, owner of Mineola’s Piccola Bussola have gone above and beyond in the services they have provided for their communities and beyond, criteria for this award.

Bavaro and Lubrano were to have been presented with the “Community Service Award” in 2020, but the pandemic had put this prestigious recognition on hold until now.

Rotary will also spotlight a performance by the Mineola High School Chorus who will perform a repertoire of holiday and specialty tunes as it has for many past years -alternating with the Garden City High School chorus.

Everyone is welcome to join with Rotary to celebrate this afternoon of good cheer and fellowship along with plenty of good networking.

To attend at $75 per person $700 table of 10, RSVP by Dec. 8 to Meg Norris at 516-294-8900; or email Make your check payable for $75 per person to the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club and mail with reservation(s) to Meg Norris c/o The Garden City News, 821 Franklin Ave., Garden City, NY 11530.
