The dinner will take place on Monday, November 19 at The Crystal Room, located at 98 School Street in Naugatuck.
Mr. Nurnberger, who has a BA in history from the University of Colorado, has worked as both a history and special education teacher.

Rotarians promote and foster high ethical standards in business and professions and promote the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations. Each year Rotary presents an award to someone in the community who has exemplified outstanding professional achievement while maintaining very high ethical standards. Last year's recipient of this award was Charley Marenghi.
There will be a cash bar available from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm followed by a buffet dinner and the awards presentation. The cost for the event is $40 per person. Reservations for the event can be made by calling either Jenny Lennon at 203-231-3093 or John McCormack at 203-651-9634.
