Three cheers to Maria Truncali, wife of past president Ben Truncali, of the Verrazano Rotary Club for her years of dedication and service to the organization. As a Rotary tradition, the past president’s spouse is recognized and honored at the annual dinner/dance gala.
This year, the event was held at the Hilton in Staten Island, where state Sen. Martin Golden (R–Bay Ridge) presented awards from the New York State Senate to Maria along with fellow honorees and commended the Rotary’s good work in the community.
“The members of the rotary give of themselves not 100 percent, but 120 percent. They are out there at each event trying to help others and make sure they make a difference,” he said.
Borough daughter Maria truly embodies the spirit of the Rotarians whose motto is “Service Above Self,” and as an active member for the past 16 years she truly deserves the accolades.
Standing O says, “Thank you.”
