Celebrating 69 Years of Service at Membership Luncheon

Categories: Blog

  AHRC Nassau celebrated 69 years of fulfilling the promise to children and adults with developmental disabilities at our Annual Membership Luncheon. This year was particularly special, as the organization celebrated the 100th anniversary of its grounds and 60 years of being headquartered in Brookville. Over 600 AHRC members and guests in government shared their support and commitment for people with developmental disabilities.

The annual Membership Luncheon is a great tradition at AHRC, paying tribute to the members and what their voices, together, are able to achieve. As members and supporters come together, it’s important to recognize the contributions of AHRC Auxiliaries. We are pleased to recognize: The Floral Park Auxiliary for the greatest number of new members. The Garden City Auxiliary for the greatest number of membership renewals. The Massapequa/Seaford/Farmingdale Auxiliary for the greatest overall membership.
