Brick Township celebrated Gene Donatiello Day yesterday, the latest honor for a man who has served his community for decades and whose work will help future generations of township residents know where they came from.

Donatiello, the township historian, had May 13 declared as his “day” by Mayor John Ducey a day earlier. The proclamation recognized Donatiello’s long service to the community as a teacher, a founding member of the Brick Township Historical Society and of the Brick Township Historical Preservation Commission and the author of several books including two of the popular “Images of America” books about Brick.  It also mentioned his recently being presented with the Pauline S. Miller Lifetime Achievement Award in Ocean County History.

At the society’s 39th Annual Installation Dinner, also held on May 12 at Charlie Brown’s Restaurant in Toms River, Ducey installed the group’s new officers:  Greg Duffy as president, Dorothy Holtzman as Vice-President, Margaret Osborn as Treasurer, Kathy Keleher as Corresponding Secretary and Elaine McGuire as Recording Secretary.
