On June 20, 2007 the Suffolk Community Council held its Annual Membership Meeting at the Sheraton Long Island Hotel in Hauppauge.  Suffolk County Presiding Officer Bill Lindsay addressed the audience on issues pertaining to health and human services. This year the Council had two recipients of the 4th Maxine Postal award for Human Dignity - Nancy Nunziata of HELP Suffolk and Sister Mary Ryan of the Open Word.  New Council board members and returning board members were sworn in by Suffolk Community Council's President, Michael McClain.

The Maxine Postal Award

Maxine Postal was a Suffolk County Legislator, past Presiding Office of the Legislature and a real friend to health and human services.  A tireless advocate for the poor and vulnerable, she used her political position to further her fight for what was right and decent for all people regardless of race, color, sexual or political preferences.  She was a champion of all champions.  Sadly, Maxine passed away in January of 2004 leaving a legacy of human dignity and advocacy for others to carry on.

Every year, the Suffolk Community Council honors a worthy recipient of the Maxine Postal Award for Human Dignity to a person who has dedicated themselves to the spirit and principles exhibited by Maxine Postal.

This year, the Suffolk Community Council was pleased to honor Nancy Nunziata as one of the recipients of the Maxine Postal award for her hard work and dedication to women dealing with domestic violence and homelessness, and we were equally pleased to honor Sister Mary Ryan for her hard work and dedication to teaching literacy to women who are poor and disadvantaged.  

Past recipients of the Maxine Postal award are:

Rabbi Steven A. Moss
