WOODBURY — John Monteleone has received the Tribury Rotary Club Distinguished Service Citation in recognition for his positive impact in the club and three communities it serves, Woodbury, Southbury, and Middlebury.

He has been a Rotarian for almost 10 years and, during that time, has served as club president and assistant district governor.

In addition, he has been selected as Rookie of the Year, received the club service award twice and the club’s president award in recognition of exemplary service to the club.

A key element of Rotary is Service Above Self and bringing about positive change in the communities it serves.

As recipient of the Distinguished Service Citation, Mr. Monteleone has designated Southbury Food Bank as the recipient of a $100 from the Tribury Rotary Foundation so the bank can continue providing grab-and-go bags that clients can pick up without leaving their vehicles.

In addition, the bank is delivering to all Grace Meadows clients and many seniors in Heritage Village.

Mr. Monteleone also received a $100 gift certificate to John’s Café, which supports the Tribury Rotary Club.
