Hi! I was privileged to be at the first Thomas Paine Annual Award Dinner on November 17th, honoring Dick Morris, Please click below for a short synopsis of the wonderful evening. The three Community Award recipients were lead by the Trinity St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Worship has taken place on this site since 1688 and this year marks their 322nd Anniversary. The parish comes from diverse racial, national, cultural, economic and religious backgrounds and they find unity in worship, social education and outreach, such as a soup kitchen that prepares more than 500 meals a week. The next organization that was honored was Dr. John E. Jacoby, the Founder of Metro+Med, which has served the New Rochelle community for 26 years. This practice brings primary healthcare and medicine to individuals, families and businesses of the community. Finally, the evening honored the President and Treasurer of the Historical Society; Norman and Sydelle Herzberg. Long-time residents of New Rochelle, the Herzbergs have been in the forefront of preserving the history of New Rochelle for future generations. They collectively have 53 years of service to the Huguenot & New Rochelle Historical Association and its predecessor, the Huguenot and Thomas Paine Association.
New Rochelle is GREAT!
