ELIH and the Laura Goodale Award
Southold and Greenport Rotary Clubs hosted the annual Laura Goodale Dinner at which a nurse from ELIH is honored for exhibiting similar characteristics and service as the woman for whom the award is named: a nurse who gave exemplary service to the hospital for 42 years beginning in 1918.

Honoring Bill Zitek
On March 12, the club honored Bill Zitek, a Southold Rotarian for 50 years.

We wish them well as they embark on a new chapter of their lives in a different community!
