The Ozone Park Kiwanis Club honored two of its eldest members on Sept. 21.

Anthony Gasparello, left photo, and Nick Sangiamo received special plaques honoring their more than 100 years of combined service to the community. Both were founding members of the Ozone Park Kiwanis Club, which is 60 years old this year.

Gasparello, 92, is a World War II veteran who was a founding member of the Ozone Park Kiwanis and was its president for a time in the early 1960s.

Sangiamo, 87, is a graduate of John Adams High School and also served in World War II, seeing action in France and Belgium and taking part in the Battle of the Bulge.

Sangiamo was the seventh president of the Ozone Park Kiwanis and has been co-owner of a neighborhood auto parts store for 56 years.

Presenting the awards to Gasparello and Sangiamo are Ozone Park Kiwanis member Paul Capocasale, left, and President Victor Rodriguez.

Welcome to the discussion.
