Expressing his admiration for a job well done, John Eff, Vice President of the East Northport Rotary (standing far right), addresses a group of volunteer fire fighters from the Centerport Fire Department. Mr. Eff’s speech included his knowledge of Rotary and the importance of volunteerism to the local community as well as internationally.  Following the presentation, a $250.00 check was awarded by board members of the East Northport Rotary.   

Pictured left of John Eff (seated) is Stephen Jones, 2nd Lieutenant and current President of Engine Company #2, along with Rotarians Susan Janas and Joan Bubaris. 

With its long history of serving the residents of Centerport, it is known that the late William K. Vanderbilt, former resident, and Philanthropist, was also an honorary member gifting the department their first rescue vehicle back in the 1920’s.
