Presiding Officer Norma Gonsalves recently attended the Francis X. Pendl Nassau County Firefighters Museum and Education Center 2017 Badge of Courage Gala to present Special Legislative Citations to the evenings honorees. Those receiving awards that night were Brett Yormark, Gerard Presta and the Nassau County Junior Firefighters Association, the Nassau County Firefighters Operation Wounded Warriors and the late Keith Lane, who posthumously received the Inaugural Keith Lane Memorial Excellence in Journalism Award.
“I am proud to recognize these individuals and groups for their commitment to our community,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “Thank you for all you do.”
