Tell Us: Who Made a Difference in 2012?

Nominate your Half Hollow Hills neighbors for Patch's list of people who mattered this year.

The Half Hollow Hills area is filled with special people who make a difference, people who make an impact on our lives on a regular, sometimes daily, basis.

There are educators, business owners, volunteers, public officials, clergy members and others working to make our community a better place.

Many people went to extraordinary lengths to help others cope and recover from the hurricane. School officials worked diligently to get their schools reopened after Hurricane Sandy; food pantries fed the hungry at warming shelters and firefighters, police officers and volunteers helped the community.

Half Hollow Hills Patch is compiling a list of 10 local people who mattered in 2012. We need your help.

Nominate candidates in the comment section below, or write on our Facebook page.

Please give us the person's name and the reason they belong on this list.

Steve Muraco for doing so much for our HHH Little League

John Nitti; for his strong-willed determination to have a Friday night Hills East football game. Almost single-handedly, he created a phenomena. Several thousand people in DIx Hills attended a Friday night high school football game and there was a real sense of community and fun about a positive, community event. I recall when came up with the idea, and watched as he worked with the district and town to bring it to fruition. Amazing! BTW, I agree with above recommendation for Steve Muraco. He has also contributed a tremendous amount of time to running one of the best Little League programs on Long Island.

Bob Budah, Director of Park Shore Country Day Camp. His contribution of $25,000.00 to the Half Hollow Hills HS Robotics team saved the program and will allow hundreds of students the opportunity to study important STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts in the future. His commitment to science education (he is also starting a new Science Academy at Park Shore) for the children of our community is unwavering.
