On July 3, the Vestry of the Board of St. Georges Church in Astoria, along with the owners of D&F Development Group, dedicated the newly-built Senior Residence in honor of the Honorable Gloria D’Amico, late Queens County Clerk.
Those who spoke at the ceremony included State Senator Michael Gianaris; Assemblymember Aravella Simotas; former State Senator George Onorato; Father Juan Quevedo-Bosch of Church of the Redeemer; Mother Karen of St. Georges Church; Leonard D’Amico and Peter Florey of D&F Development; and Amanda D’Amico, Gloria’s granddaughter.
Despite the rainy day, the turnout was remarkable, with residents from the building, members of the Astoria community, as well as members of the family including Louis and Dr. Catherine D’Amico, Leonard and Wendy D’Amico with their two daughters, Amanda and Lauren.
The former Queens County Clerk was very involved in the Astoria community. Through her work with the Taminent-Regular Democratic Club, Variety Boys and Girls Club and SHAREing & CAREing she became well known throughout the area.
