The Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce hosted the honoring Deputy Mayor Alan Beach, Fire Chief , and Lynbrook Philanthropist Nicholas Vuotto Thursday night at the Knights of Columbus.
The trio was awarded plaques for their "outstanding service and dedication: to the village of Lynbrook."
Chamber President Bill Gaylor thanked Beach first for his efforts as Deputy Mayor.
"You stepped in , no matter how long it may have took, and you were there in the hospital every day to support your friend," Gaylor said. "That is what makes you so special - you really do care."
Mayor Bill Hendrick gave Beach credit for helping set up the behind village hall.
"Alan is an outstanding elected official and an even better family man," Hendrick said. “When you mention the [memorial] and his name comes up he doesn’t want to hear it, because many were involved. He gets annoyed. But he put it together.”
Hynes was recognized for the job he has done as chief of the fire department, helping "keep the village safe" and being on call at "all hours in the day."
Vuotto helped put together the 9/11 memorial. A Lynbrook resident, Beach said that Vuotto spent days volunteering to help put together the memorial.
"Everything was no problem, never once did he say no - He never hesitated," Beach said. "They all spent days because they picked up the steel and brought it back to fabrication, gave up another day at the steel shop then another day bringing it here and putting it up. It was people like Nick that make this village great."
