On Thursday, June 12, Rob and Suzie Alvey will be honored by the Mineola Garden City Rotary Club at its annual Community Service Award Dinner which will be held at the Garden City Country Club from 6 to 10 p.m. Given how the Alveys are so intrinsically woven into the fabric of the local community, this honor is well deserved.

For nearly two decades, he has overseen the transformation of this neglected nine acres into an eco-friendly oasis that serves as a haven for both wildlife and harried individuals seeking a respite from the chaos of everyday life. The seeds for it were planted back in 1992, when he was appointed to the Village of Garden City Environmental Board.
