President's Note

June Dinner - Recap

In addition to being the final meeting of the League year, June Dinner is the Annual Meeting of the Junior League of Long Island. It is when the League recognizes members, community partners, and achievements from throughout the League year
The following members were recognized with service pins for years of service:

Retroactive 5 years: Melissa Beyer, Cristine Bruno, Janet Closs, Loretta Hahn, and Walky Rodriguez

5 years: Geralynne Hughes and Carol Rodriguez-St. Jacques

10 years: Nicole Conrad, Elizabeth Fraschilla, and Graciela Hall

25 years: Shana Rocheleau
The Community Award, instituted in 1988, is presented to organizations or individuals from the community that have made outstanding contributions to the program and philosophy of the Junior League of Long Island.
Instituted in 2003, the Golden Hanger Award is presented to the member with the largest total donations to the Thrift Shop, which is the Junior League of Long Island’s largest fundraiser.
The Golden Hanger Award:

1st Place: Cindy Dwyer

2nd Place: Lisa Johnson   3rd Place: Juliet Tenaglia   4th Place: Remi Farnan
Each year since it's inception in 1963, at the Annual Meeting in June, the Sustainers of the Junior League of Long Island recognize an outstanding Active Member by presenting her with the Daisy Award. The recipient of the Daisy must not have held the position of either President or Vice President of the Junior League, but is a volunteer who has made significant contributions to the League throughout her years as an Active Member.
This has been an exceptional year, we have been hit with so many challenges, but have also overcome so many of them. It only seemed fitting to incorporate and present 2 very special awards. We currently did not have an award in place that could adequately represent and express the true appreciation felt for these recipients.
Outstanding Service Award: Graciela Hall and Zina Kennedy

Men of the League Award: Simba Addae and John Hall
Certificates of Appreciation were awarded by President Carol Rodriguez-St. Jacques to the following members:
Melissa Beyer, Loretta Hahn, Meredith Nies, Morgan Rooney, Lauren Singer McBride, and Joan Yonke
The First Year Active Award, instituted in 1988, is given in special recognition of League members demonstrating outstanding leadership in their first active year with the League. This year’s first year active recipient has made it a point to volunteer at the Thrift Shop consistently in her provisional year and first active year. She has attended various league projects and is always willing to lend a helping hand with a smiling face and a can do attitude.
On December 7, 1994, the sustainers honored our first President Ibby Byrnes. At that time, the Actives announced the creation of a special award in her honor. This award is to be presented to any member active, sustainer or provisional who shows exceptional dedication to supporting the Thrift Shop as the League's major fund-raiser and in promoting it in the community. Sadly, Ibby has passed on, but her legacy is alive and well and being carried on by members like this year’s Ibby Byrnes award recipient.
This year’s award recipient is probably going to come at no surprise. This woman started the league year with bang! Taking on 4 different positions and working on her Capstone at the same time. Immersing herself completely into her new role as Treasurer, while continuing her role as House Chair and Restoration Committee Chair. She created endless spreadsheets, agendas, emails and follow up to do’s. She chiseled door knobs, assisted in bleeding of radiators, and most importantly was the driving force in getting our Thrift Shop back up and running. While our volunteers were the branches of the tree, assisting in growth and movement, Remi Farnan you were the Trunk. Strong, mostly steady, and completely unwavering! Your resolute nature got us to the finish line, and I am in awe of your work ethic and steadfast nature. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do!
Joan Yonke, Membership Development Co-Chair, announce and introduced our newest Active Members!

Hillary Garcia, Erica Grasso, Jessica Peters, Stephanie Raduazo, and Jess Torraca
