Central Nassau Rotary honors Plattduetsche Park Restaurant manager


The Central Nassau County Rotary Club hosted over 150 people at its annual dinner on May 18 at the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant in Franklin Square, where this year’s theme was “Feed the Hungry and Help the Needy.”

Matt Buck, general manager of Plattduetsche, was honored for his efforts as secretary of Rock Out Cures, Inc. The charity helps families in the community that are dealing with the impacts of cancer and other diseases.

Buck’s foundation also provides scholarships to outstanding high school seniors who show dedication to not only their studies, but to their community.

Buck, Rock Out Cures’ president Bryan Mayer and vice president James Gangone received distinguished Paul Harris awards as well for their philanthropy.

The Central Nassau County Rotary Club is always looking for new members. Individuals who enjoy connecting with others in the community can do so through the Rotary, which meets weekly in person and on Zoom.
