Guinan Family Community Service Award--How to Contribute

Readers have asked how they can make a contribution in memory and thanks of Guinan's now that the store has closed.

Through the Garrison Union Free School District, I established the Guinan Family Community Service Award in 2006 to honor the GUFS student who most strongly exhibits leadership by giving back to their community during the school year.

The annual award, typically given out in June, is designed to encourage students to think the importance of service and community much in the same spirit as Jim & Peg Guinan and their children and grandchildren did while running Guinan's Pub & Country store for nearly 50 years. Each student selected receives $100 as thanks and acknowledgment for their contributions. A member of the Guinan family has been present each year to help present the award.

While the award is funded in perpetuity, additional donations would help expand the gift to more than one deserving student. If interested, checks can be made out to GUFS with an accompanying letter indicating funds are earmarked for the Guinan Community Service fund and a note indicating the same in the memo line of the check.
