50 years of FDNY at RCNY – April 26, 2018
   by Andreas Runggatscher

On April 26, 2018 the Rotary Club of New York celebrated, for the 50th year in a row, the brave Firefighters of FDNY. The invocation was eloquently delivered by NY Rotary Foundation Trustee Michael Snizek. President Elect Theodore Perednia introduced Commissioner Daniel Nigro. Commissioner Nigro has has made it a wonderful tradition of joining us every year of his tenure as Commissioner.

Then President Jasmin asked our Hero of the Day, Lieutenant Mike Conboy, to do a self introduction and describe his heroic deed. He did it in the humblest of ways and in summary thanked his colleagues and his wife of many years, who was also in attendance. He pointed out that the motto “Service Above Self” dominates the characters of the FDNY as much as Rotary.

After President Jasmin made our honorable guest speaker Daniel Nigro an Honorary Member, the meeting adjourned at 1pm.
