Putnam Valley Library To Present Annual Awards At Brunch This Sunday
For the past 24 years, the Putnam Valley Library Board of Trustees has presented the Virginia Connolly Award for distinguished voluntary public service to a Putnam Valley resident who, while freely giving of time and effort, has made a marked contribution to the quality of life in the valley and to the welfare of its citizens. The award was established in 1976 to honor Mrs. Virginia Connolly, whose voluntary efforts on behalf of numerous groups throughout the state, county and local area, established a standard for voluntarism in this area. The 1999 award was given to Don Graesser and Mel Levenson. The Virginia Connolly Award for 2000 will be given to Anthony Abilo.
