Congratulations to Stan Martin on being named the Warwick Rotary 2017-18 Citizen of the Year. Stan served his Country and is the Vice commander of Warwick American Legion Post #214. Since retiring as a community-focused journalist, Stan has devoted his time to serving others in his community. Rotary also recognized two residents for Outstanding Community Service. Tom Buchanan was a past president of the Lions Club, integral part of the yearly Apple Fest event, part of the support adults for the Queens Village Queens Drum & Bugle Corp., as well as a member of the Warwick Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Paul Orthmann quietly lends his skills and resources to the Warwick Food Pantry, has supplied over 100 holiday baskets to our migrant families and supported numerous other charities in our Town, including the Warwick in Bloom Beautification Program.
